Customer Question
concussion. He fell on ice...
My partner had a fall this morning and suffered a concussion. He fell on ice and struck the back of his head on the pavement. He had 4 or 5 staples put in at the hospital ER and is now at home resting. He is still oozing a small amount of blood from the area on the back of his head. Is this something to be concerned about or is it normal/expected.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is expected from the stapling.

The small blood vessels from the scalp can still ooze for sometime.

This can be cleaned by gauze piece.

And a bandage can be wrapped around to maintain pressure which eventually will stop the oozing.

He should avoid any physical exertion for next 3 days at least.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
