Is There Bleeding In The Brain That Can Be Cured Without Surgery?
I want to ask, my mother had a single accident, and she fell from the motorbike, the wound on the right side of the head above the temple, and currently still in the hospital for 5 days. When the incident happened, the mother was taken to the ER, when the skull was scanned it was safe, there were no cracks at all, but according to the neurologist, it was just a collision and told me there was bleeding in the brain, there was no mention of a lot or a little blood and was not ordered to operate. but the mother’s condition at this time was able to eat, the vision was rather clear, the hearing was clear, she did not feel nauseous, and did not forget (amnesia) she just forgot when she fell because she was fainting. the mother complained of dizziness, from the first day of the incident until now the dizziness is still there. how can the dizziness disappear? and if there is bleeding in the brain can it be cured without surgery?
Hello Ilham, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Brain hemorrhage is a condition in which there is a rupture of blood vessels in the brain so that a lot of blood loss and on the brain. Usually, brain hemorrhage is most often caused by high blood pressure that causes bleeding stroke or because of head injury. Symptoms that appear depend on which part of the head / brain is bleeding, symptoms that often appear include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, paralysis of half the body, balance disorders, etc.
Basically, about 3-5% of head injuries do not require surgery, because the human body including the brain has the ability to absorb bleeding by itself, usually assisted by several drugs that increase repair of the brain, so that the relatively small blood absorption can be carried out by the brain automatically. optimal. Whereas in patients with head injuries accompanied by loss of consciousness, bleeding greater than 25 cc, an increase in brain pressure of more than 25mmHg, bruises in the brain and a shift in the midline in the brain are indications of the importance of surgery to save the patient's brain and life.
The dizziness suffered by your mother is still quite normal with the history she has been through, repair of the brain certainly also takes time to be able to return to full normal. The most important thing is to reduce the effects of head injuries including the intensity of dizziness in several ways such as:
limiting activities that require concentration, such as reading and watching TV.
reduce active activities such as exercise and strenuous daily activities
during recovery avoid doing two activities at a time, such as eating while watching TV, or eating while reading
avoid taking medicines other than those from a doctor's prescription
while not doing long trips using an airplane because it will increase the pressure inside the head and affect the recovery process
A little information from us, hopefully answered. Thanks.
