Customer Question

My husband had a bad fall 3 weeks ago and hit the left frontal lobe, 6 sutures, brain contusion per CT. Scan, subdural bleed and lost consciousness about 1 min. Symptoms now are; some difficulty finishing sentences, searches for words and repeats some information an hour or two after he has told me the first time. He gets discharged from rehab at Health South in 3 days. I want him followed by neurologist along with possible therapy etc. He is a sharp 83 yr. old who was extremely successful in business.

This is Dr. David

I agree with you

he should be monitored by neurology

did he get his subdural bleed drained out by a craniotomy?

he should get a brain MRI scan as well.

Hello Welcome to JA. I am an Adult BC Neuorologist and will answer your question. How can I help from here? Do you have the latest MRI report on your husband? If yes, please upload the report minus your husbands name, as this is a public forum, and I can explain it to you, discuss treatment options etc? Did he get an EEG as part evaluation? The same applies, if you have questions, let me know, just upload the report.

I would assume he saw a Neurologist in the hospitalization, and has started Speech Rehab? If not, let me know, I can explain his language disorder to you if I have a bit more information. Please get back to me by text here, and I will reply. I can also call you on the phone, if interested, let me know. dr Frank
