What are the chances of a full recovery for a patient suffering fro a hypoxic brain injury?

What are the chances of a full recovery for a patient suffering fro a hypoxic brain injury?

It depends: Brain cells do have a remarkable ability to recover. They can go into a shock state following hypoxia. With good support and good therapy many may recover and return to near normal function. Many may die. The outcome is hard to predict, but full effort is justified. At some point it will become obvious the degree of damage that has been done for which no recovery is possible. ...Read more

Oncology: How long after a Whipple operation can a patient still have a slightly annoying pain as a result of inflammation as seen on a PET scan?

Weeks: Since the Whipple requires several anastomosis, there is the potential for slight and temporary leaks. These areas should be drained at the time of surgery and include suturing the common duct to small bowel, and implanting the transected body of pancreas into jejunum. These sites are well known to cause, even with good drainage, temporary leakage setting up inflammation seen on scan. ...Read more

What type of surgery would a person with a severe concussion require?

What type of surgery would a person with a severe concussion require?

Probably none: Concussion without structural injury does not require surgery. Most of the structural injuries (such as blood clots) are fatal if not operated on immediately, so you don't seem to have that type of injury. Unfortunately, there is no way to "cure" a concussion, but it needs to be "managed" carefully while the body heals. The best place for this is a multidisciplinary concussion clinic. ...Read more

I had a colon resection for colon cancer and now have a ostomy. I'm having problems and a barium enema shows filing of the cecum. What would cause thi?

I"m confused: If you have a colostomy, and barium is injected into it, the cecum (the first part of the colon in the rlq) should fill. Now, if the barium is injected into your rectal stump and the barium fills, then there's a tract (fistula) between the rectal stump and the cecum, which is not normal. This should be discussed with the operating surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

Review with your Dr: Hi Please review the radiology results with your doctor. Generally speaking, we are able to see finer detail of internal organs on CT scans than on X-rays. We typically order CT scans to confirm, refute, or gather more information about questionable findings on X-rays.
