Long Term Effects Of Hard Impact On The Back Of The Head?
Sorry, when I was a child I had an impact on the back of my head, and had to be sewn, then what are the consequences / effects that I will experience in the future?rnThank you
Hi son, Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. Head injuries from impact can be mild, moderate, to severe. Having a tear that needs stitches doesn't directly reflect the severity of your previous injury. To be more objective, further evaluation is needed, starting from a physical or radiological examination, such as x-rays, CT scans, to MRI. Have you had any of the above examinations after your injury? So, are there any complaints that you experience after the injury? Determining the possible sequelae that may occur after a head injury must be carried out through a comprehensive examination by a doctor or especially a neurologist and neurosurgeon. However, in general, possible dangerous complications should be suspected if:
Your previous injury involved high altitude or high speed After your injury you have symptoms, such as loss of consciousness, vomiting, convulsions, fever, paralysis of the hands and/or feet, amnesia, deformity of the skull, etc. Are any of the danger signs above? what are you experiencing? One of the feared sequelae of head injury is the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain. This condition can cause increased pressure inside the skull, causing complaints such as decreased consciousness, vomiting, seizures, paralysis, amnesia, and so on. However, in general, if none of the above danger signs you experience after an injury, then the possibility of a head injury that you experienced before is not dangerous. The effects that may occur after the impact may only be in the form of scars that often widen, or are called hypertrophic scars (keloids). This condition can also cause hair growth to be impaired, so that baldness (baldness) can appear. The rest, to find out the effects that may occur after the injury, it must be determined through a doctor's examination directly. Hope this helps. dr. Nadia Nurotul Fuadah
