What do you suggest if my dad had recently suffered from a subarachnoid hemorrhage in the brain. Help!!!?
First find source. First of all is subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) from trauma, result of aneurysm rupturing, or non-aneurysmal SAH? If from trauma then blood will go away with time but your Dad needs to follow up with Neurosurgeon. If from aneurysm (outpouching of blood vessel) then either surgical treatment or endovascular in radiology suite with balloons and glue, etc. Please let me know if I can assist further.
Should I be concerned if my father had recently suffered from a subarachnoid hemorrhage in the brain?
Possibly. The general recommendation is for screening with noninvasive brain vascular imaging if you have two first degree relatives with brain aneurysms. You should seek consultation with a specialist, or possibly the physician who cared for your fathers subarachnoid hemorrhage to see if there is anything else you should do.
