Stroke causes coma

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke causes coma


Avatar n tn Hi there. The various possible causes of coma in your sister are, epilepsy or exposure to heat stroke or hypothermia, hypo or hyperglycemia, uremia or renal failure, trauma or head injury, stroke, psychosis etc. speak with your sister’s intensivist who would be able to tell more about the exact cause of coma in her, if it has been diagnosed. The hypotension could be due to vasomotor collapse or the centres in brain stem getting affected or circulatory shock or septicemia. All the best.
Avatar n tn I am in my late twenties and my mom had a stroke in January. She woke up from her coma after two months. They gave up on her in rehab. She had four brain surgeries. They had to remove a clot and took her scalp /bone from her head. They put both things back and she is in the hospital. She suffered paralyses on her left side and she can't transfer. Verbally she communicates how she wants to transfer and do things but her mind has kept her back. It has been 6 months since her stroke.

Avatar n tn In my case when I was 19 I had a brain hemorrhage that caused a massive stroke. after removing the blood flow I get in coma for a week. Doctors could not guarantee if I would wake up or the time it would take. my sister tells me that she spoke and sang to me while I was in a coma is important to keep the faith and be positive although it is very difficult. About the recovery when she wake up from coma then the doctors could really know what injuries (if is there one) she have.

Avatar f tn She has been in a coma ever since. her bleed has hardly receded. She is 77 years old but was extremely active right up to the onset of the stroke. I have been extremely worried because the doctors don't know why she is till in a coma or why her bleed has not receded. Should it take so long? If anyone has been in the same situation, please share your experiences with me....
Avatar f tn Hi my dad had a massive stroke 4days ago,he had not had high blood pressure nor any symptoms.
Avatar f tn My 43 yr old spouse had blood clot that led to a stroke on March 21. They performed a craniectomy and have been in a coma with very little response except to pain. Is there anyone out there that have experience this and how long was the recoving period to come out of the coma?
Avatar n tn But again, the first things I mentioned are all very important (especially the neuro exam findings) in helping to determine how severe her coma is. EEG and Evoke potentials are both tests that can also evaluate the level of coma she is in. If there is any doubt as to her potential recovery, I would consider putting her in rehab to wait and see what she does. Please keep in mind that I have not personally reviewed your mother's films nor examined her.
Avatar f tn My dad just had the worst stroke, they say it is in the pons. He is currently in a coma, they say his chances are close to 0% to recover. They weren't even able to do surgery because they said its already badly damaged. So now he lays in a coma, its been few weeks, he opens his eyes but he isn't able to see he doesn't follow finger. Could anyone educate me more about this?

Avatar f tn i have an uncle who is now in coma for 4 days. He met a vehicular accident. He was unconsoius when brought to the hospital. The doctors said that he suffered from stroke since he has a HIGH BLOOD. Diagnosis was hemorrhagic stroke and said it was fatal. MAy i know if he has the chance to recover considering the period of his coma. I sthere achance to recover if the the doctor says his brain is dead already. How come yesterday he responded to any pain when pinch. is this a good sign?
Avatar f tn My best friend had a massive stroke on Jan.16/09. As of Jan 18/09 she has been in a coma. She is 51 years old and has been in fairly good health. She has always been a fighter. The Drs. are only giving her less then 5% chance of pulling out of it. Anyone that knows the same situation with any words of encouragement would help. Right now we are helpless, just alot of prayers.
