My dad fall and have a blood in the brain, he doesn't need a surgery, he have amnesia and hallucination. How can I help him?

My dad fall and have a blood in the brain, he doesn't need  a surgery, he have amnesia and hallucination. How can I help him?

Watch him.: Make sure the neurologist follows the patient with imaging studies ( ct or mri). He/she may order medicines for hallucinations . Amnesia may improve by itself or stayed the same. There are drugs for hallucinations. Just be supportive taking pt to appointments and reminding him what he has to do. Read about falling precautions . He might need institutionalization if difficult to handle. ...Read more

Help docs! i'm trying to find out what causes blood on the brain of a child could it possibly be sinusitis?

Unlikely: A complicated sinus infection in a child can result in lots of problems but it would be rare to have bleeding in the brain from that alone. ...Read more

How long does it take to get over a minor cuncussion assuming that is what the doctors meant, on the brain. With just a little blood on the brain.

Concussion: A "minor" concussion is usually recovered from quickly - with the presence of blood that can delay things a bit but normally the patient is back to normal within 2-3 months if not sooner. ...Read more

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?

If you had a concussion and a little blood on the brain that they thought would desolve or go away on  its own but showed up on a MRI 3weeks lat then?

MR is very sensitive: Mri is very sensitive in detecting blood products. It is even capable of staging the age of the bleed as the imaging characteristics of blood on MRI are variable and change with the age of the blood. So as long as your hematoma is evolving in expected fashion (based on mri) and have not changed in size it is ok. Hemosiderin (blood break down product) can be detected on MRI years after the bleed. ...Read more

I have blood in my brain after getting knocked out. How can I get rid of the blood fastest?

I have blood in my brain after getting knocked out. How can I get rid of the blood fastest?

Time will heal: Small amount of blood in the brain can disappear on ct scans after a week. Obviously larger amounts will take longer. The breakdown product of the blood itself is an irritant to the brain, and can cause symptoms (headaches, nausea, vomiting, etc.) long after the blood is gone on ct scan. Steroids may help initially. It just takes time to heal. ...Read more

I've had a blood test after some lesions were found on my brain. The results are total white count of 8.0 myocytes 0.9 and eosinophils count 0.5.

I've had a blood test after some lesions were found on my brain. The results are total white count of 8.0 myocytes 0.9 and eosinophils count 0.5.

Need more info: If you relay more of the clinical information then, I may be able to make a little more sense out of it since the blood results are essentially"normal." Whatever they were looking for in the blood to explain the lesions on the brain aren't going to help. Also, DID you mean to say "monocytes" not "myocytes." You may contact me if you'd like at www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi. Key Code: PDXFNR ...Read more

I've seen this B4: Funny but I believe I just saw this question a few moments ago. I don't recall if it was from the same person or not but I am assuming it almost certainly is because of the numbers. These numbers are normal and do not suggest the presence of an acute infection by either bacteria, viruses, or parasites. They do not help us understand anymore about the "brain lesions." ...Read more

After head injury how long does it take before you can be sure there is no blood clot in the brain?

After head injury how long does it take before you can be sure there is no blood clot in the brain?

Depends: This depends on the mechanism of injury and age of the patient. Majority of head injuries lead to bleeding immediately after impact, due to disruption of blood vessels in the tissues. If an initial ct does not show any bleeding, risks are relatively low to have a delayed bleeding. ...Read more
