My brother has Cavernous angiomies...
My brother has Cavernous angiomies . He fell last Sunday and hit the back of his head. Putting a 3” cut in it needing 6 staples. He was sent home . Now he is fuzzy headed, headaches, sleeping anytime he sits Down. He also can’t make simple decisions or get the where- with- all to get together a small grocery list and go to store for it. Can any neurologist give me advice on this. He won’t call his dr. He has no Neurologist.

I see you have requested another expert.

What is your exact question for us?

Please be specific, I understand the situation. Are you asking what do do?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
An opinion of the condition he is In now .?

This was after a fall, has he had an exam or a brain scan since the fall?

Ask Your Own Neurology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
His family dr saw him 3 days after the Er. No more brain scans . Can’t have mri due to pace maker. Yes it is after a fall.

Then I think this is abnormal.

He needs a CT scan to rule out a chronic bleed.

If this is not there, he needs to see a neurologist to rule out post concussion syndrome, which can have long term ill effects and can be treated successfully.

If a CT has already been done since the fall, then to a neurologist.

OK, let me know if you have more questions, I am here as needed.
