nose bleeds and stroke

Re: nose bleeds and stroke

I have not heard of any connections between nose bleeds and stroke, but if you are seeing unusual activity from your husband, I would act on the side of caution and have him checked out.

Re: nose bleeds and stroke

I am so sorry Nannymax, I know it must be very worrisome for you to have all this going on. I too can understand his reluctance to go in, and your fear of the worst. I bet the more you pressure him to go see the doctors the worse it gets.

Can you give his doctor a call and explain what is going on? I know you cannot force him to go in, and you are his comfort and support. It is so hard to be in your shoes.

I recently went through something similar with my own dad, and I had to remain the person he trusted in this world. I thought I knew what he needed (more medical care) but he really just needed to be home and go through it there.

Please keep in touch, and let us know what is going on...your are in my prayers.

Janet

Re: nose bleeds and stroke

I am so sorry for what your husband is going through. Yes you are right he should be at the hospital but I understand why he doesnt want to go. That makes your job so much harder. You are in my prayers I wish I could help more than that. Please keep posting to us.
God Bless Mulchie

Re: nose bleeds and stroke

This must be terribly upsetting and we are so sorry for your anguish and whatever is happening. Language issues and writing changes could be stroke indicators. Going to the ER is what some might suggest and not waiting for Monday. But I was also stubborn about not going anywhere so I understand that too.

Keeping him calm and comfortable may help ease the stress. Hoping for the best for both of you.

Re: nose bleeds and stroke

You are right to insist on a scan. Your hubby has one brain and someone better be taking care of it. I vote for the ER also and insist for someone to find out what is going on. You dear lady, you are such a good caregiver to your husband. YOu shouldnt have to fight these fights but for some reason we have to insist on excellent care for our selves and our loved ones. Ask this specialists if he gets all mad "what would he do if this was his wife or mother or father. Would he insist they get the best care. Would he want someone looking after their brain.
nannymax good luck Your in my prayers dear lady. Keep posting. We are all here for you.
God Bless Mulchie

For less conflict in the doctors office, may I suggest you just call the doctor on the phone before going to see him or her. This way you wont have to upset your husband, and the doctor will know ahead of time the questions to ask and the needed treatment.
