Head Injury After Motorcycle Accident?
First of all, our condolences for the death of your father.
We need to explain in advance that in determining the condition or diagnosis of a disease, in-depth interviews, direct physical examinations and if necessary additional examinations are needed such as X-rays, CT Scans, blood and others. Without it all, doctors cannot determine a diagnosis of a disease. So basically your doctor is the one who understands the condition of your late father the most.
Keep in mind, head injuries do have various levels from mild to severe. We already know that in the head, there is a brain that regulates almost all functions of the body from movement to consciousness. Even bodily functions that we are not aware of are also regulated by the brain such as breathing, heart rate and others.
Severe head injury, can cause damage to the brain, either due to the impact, stab wounds by a broken skull, bleeding in the brain to infection due to open wounds. Because basically, it is the cranium that maintains the sterility of the cavity in the head and brain. The brain is an organ that cannot heal if it is damaged. Therefore, if there has been damage to the brain, then the lightest thing is to leave residual symptoms that occur for a lifetime and it all depends on the position of the damaged brain. If the damage that regulates the movement of the hand, then the hand will be weak to the point of paralysis, if it is affected which regulates the eye, it can lead to blindness. And if the injured part of the brain is a fatal part, such as the one that regulates breathing, heart, consciousness and others, then the life expectancy is very small and even during surgery it does not guarantee that the patient can recover and can die on the operating table and even die in the emergency room. or immediately in the event of an accident.
Therefore, there are indeed many considerations that must be considered before a treatment method, be it surgery, drugs and others, is given to the patient. And everything depends on the patient's condition, and your doctor is the one who best understands your late father's condition at that time.
I hope this helps.
