The Cause Of Coma After A Natural Accident And Head Injury?
Hi doctor, I want to ask why my wife hasn’t been aware until now, it has been 5 days in the hospital but I was aware too, the problem was an accident that resulted in an injury to the head, but yesterday I had surgery.
Hello Putri, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
To be able to answer your question, you should know more clearly a few things such as:
What was the accident like that befell your wife? How severe is the head injury suffered? Is there bleeding in the brain and if there is, how much bleeding has occurred and how much brain damage has occurred? Are there other injuries, including internal injuries? Impaired consciousness after a head injury can occur due to several possibilities such as:
There is extensive bleeding in the brain. There is extensive edema in the brain. Severe brain damage occurs. In the case of your wife, you should confirm directly with the neurologist or neurosurgeon who is treating your wife. The condition of every person post head injury and post brain surgery can be different, so only the treating doctor can clearly know the condition of the patient being treated. If you have difficulty meeting the main doctor who treats your wife (the neurologist or neurosurgeon), you can ask the doctor directly in the room. A general practitioner on duty in the room can access your wife's medical record as well as find out your wife's general condition.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
