A Description Of The Condition Of The Patient With Brain Hemorrhage?
My sister may in 2019 was diagnosed with brain hemorrhage, and recently he said nerve wasting and groin swelling. Does it also affect vision? Almost a year of difficulty walking, some sort of balance disorder, difficulty speaking, right hand is a bit stiff. Is it wrong if my parents told me to practice walking and be trained to get used to using the right hand? Because maybe the understanding of lay people (who do not understand medical science), because there is no balance that results in difficulty walking so they are trained to get used to (but with notes not forced). Please give an explanation
Hello Intan, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
I will immediately respond to the problems that your sister is experiencing, first what must be known is the cause of brain hemorrhage that occurred in May 2019. Bleeding brain can be fatal and serious if not handled properly. After passing through the critical phase, and has been allowed to go home usually there will still be abnormalities caused. The disorder can be permanent or temporary, depending on the cause. As well as the resulting complaints also depend on the location of bleeding or damage in the brain, here are parts of the brain that might help you in guessing the location of the damage.
Responding to complaints about nerve wasting and groin swelling, I have a number of suspicions regarding this problem, and based on your story the possibility of this being caused by the condition of your brother who cannot walk / remain silent for a long time is as follows:
Occurrence of DVT / Deep vein thrombosis, which is blood clots in one or many deep veins.
The occurrence of muscle atrophy, which is a reduction in the muscles of the limbs that have never been moved. Your brother may look swollen because there may be other parts that shrink / atrophy.
For this reason, I advise you to consult directly with your doctor first, because there is a need for a direct examination on your sister, obviously this condition requires specialist treatment, the doctor will determine where your sister will be recommended right / be referred if you have health insurance.
What is clear that I want to emphasize is to make sure the cause of the bleeding, but usually the damage is difficult to recover if there is bleeding, but time and effort is not short.
Right now what you can do is:
Continue to provide support to your brother, both morally and support your time and energy.
Actions taken by your family are not wrong, but must be extra careful because there is a very high risk of falling.
If your brother has difficulty moving his body ,, help him by moving his arms and legs to avoid DVT or atrophy.
Enough daily nutritional needs.
Regularly consult a doctor to monitor the development of therapy.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
