Causes Of Postoperative Coma Of Fluid In The Cavity Of The Head?
My brother had an operation on his head because he had a lump of fluid on his head. But after 4 days after surgery did not you wake up? Is it because my brother also has a heart leak which hinders the process of recovering consciousness?
Any condition that involves the presence of a large amount of fluid in the head to the point of having to undergo surgery to evacuate (drain) the fluid is a serious condition. Fluid in the cavity of the head can compress brain tissue and impair its function. The awareness of the patient after surgery is usually also determined by the initial condition when he was admitted to the hospital, if the initial awareness is bad, there may be damage to the brain that is not reversible (can be seen from supporting examinations such as CT-scan or MRI).
There are several other factors that affect a patient's consciousness after brain surgery, including:
Effects of anesthesia The length of time the operation lasts Metabolic disorders Age of the patient being operated on. Neurological disorders State of heart failure, kidney or liver failure. There are many other factors that can prolong the return of one's consciousness after brain surgery. This can usually be explained by the doctor to the patient's guardian. If you want further consultation, you and the patient's family should be able to ask the specialist who handles the patient.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
