She was in the hospital 5 days,her blood pressure,blood work,everything looks good which is very weird!Other then that she was conscious all the time,no memory loss or anything like that. My question is why the docs didn't give her any medication while in the hospital or after?
976897 tn?1379167602 If it was not a cardiac surgery, other factors that led to clot formation previously that may still be the risk factors have to be taken into account before stopping Aspirin. A complete blood work must be carried out and a haematologist must be consulted who will advise on the basis of the reports whether Aspirin could be stopped. There could be a number of factors in the body that may cause abnormal clotting.

Avatar m tn Thrombolysis (dissolving the clot with medication within three hours of stroke) is let’s say, the recommended treatment for stroke. However, if patient has risk factors for post thrombolysis bleeding such as previous heart attack, high blood pressure, old age, fragile condition of blood vessels etc, then the doctor may advise against this treatment. This may be the reason your father was not taken up for thrombolysis.

Avatar m tn Hello, My 89 year old grand mother, residing in India, has recently suffered a hemorrhagic brain stroke. She lives at home, but stays on a bed for the whole day as she does not have much control. When we talk to her she cannot respond and tears leak out of her eyes. She can now unconsciously move her legs and her right wrist. When we bring a glass (she only takes liquids) near her mouth she opens her eyes and her mouth a little so we can pour some into her mouth.
Avatar m tn The problem is that even small doses of aspirin double the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. It also increases the risk of a life-threatening hemorrhagic stroke from bleeding into the brain. So, the decision on whether a person with no evidence of heart disease should take regular aspirin depends upon the balance between the risk of bleeding and the likelihood of cardiovascular benefit.
469720 tn?1388146349 Stroke Risk Factors Some stroke risk factors are hereditary. Others are a function of natural processes. Still others result from a person's lifestyle. You can't change factors related to heredity or natural processes, but those resulting from lifestyle or environment can be modified with the help of a healthcare professional. Fortunately, most risk factors are under our control What risk factors for stroke can't be changed?
Avatar f tn With the headache or the clinical symptoms presented, it is difficult to say whether it is a thrombotic or a hemorrhagic stroke. Stroke can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of blockage to an artery. Hemorrhagic strokes are due to bleeding and more common in patients on blood thinners. Yes it is possible to detect if the stroke is hemorrhagic or ischemic, with an MRI. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn My farhers is 78 years old , he got a non hemorrhagic stroke in brain 2 C.
Avatar n tn An angiogram revealed there was no aneurism, which leads us to think this was a hemorrhagic stroke. As of today my brother can respond in almost a semi-conscious/dream-state to simple questions (ex. what is your name?) and he is being spoon-fed. The doctor said his blood is pooling on the lobe (don't know which one) and will take another 2 to 3 weeks to go down. After that they can do an MRI to find the exact cause of the bleed.
368646 tn?1208393887 Can the reactivation of HSV-1 cause a hemorrhagic stroke (burst of cavernous hemangioma)? Are there any tests that can be done to show this? My Neurologist has done an MRI of the brain, but she says my deficits are from the stroke. After over three years and no progress, I'd like to explore this possibility, especially since many things worsen right before menstruaion. Thank you for your time!
Avatar m tn It is not recommended in either cardio embolic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke. Anticoagulation is the treatment in the first and control of blood pressure in the second case. Take care.
Avatar n tn my husband was on Plavix, Protonix and aspirin. He had a hemorrhagic stroke. Could this have been caused by this combination?
Avatar m tn Of the 59 cases, 49 were classed as ischemic strokes, 5 were transient ischemic attacks, and 1 was a hemorrhagic stroke; in 4 patients, a diagnosis of stroke was suspected but not confirmed because no neuroimaging was done. They add that in many cases the strokes appeared to have occurred while the drug was actually being smoked, or within half an hour of smoking, which is in accordance with another study showing that cannabis increases myocardial infarction 4.
Avatar m tn Is there an increased risk of getting a stroke for patients who suffered asphyxiation at birth (which was severe enough to cause mild Cerebral Palsy)?
Avatar n tn You said that there were some gaps in my message, I will try to fill those in. My mom did have a hemorrhagic stroke on the same side as her surgery. My mom was not prone to headaches, her headache was a frontal headache so intense that she stayed in bed after she came home from the hospital. My dad took her back to the hospital because her headache wouldn't stop and the next morning she had a stroke. She had to have brain surgery to remove the blood and she almost died.
