Cerebral Bleed Resources?

#1  Postby Greg the Grouper » Jan 18, 2022 3:29 am

I thought I'd ask if anyone had anything handy; my father just had a spinal tap done and blood was found in the fluid, so I'd like to learn more about it. Thanks in advance.

I understand you must be concerned, but asking random people on the internet who may or may not have expertise is tricky.
I suggest you use a trusted health provider question site like the Mayo Clinic one:

Talk to your father's doctors. The internet is a pile of shit.

Since several of you took the time to look, I thought some might appreciate an update.

An angiogram was performed, which failed to turn up a cause for the blood found in my dad's cerebral-spinal fluid. An MRI was taken, which showed no ruptured tissue. Other tests involving ultrasounds have been done, all of which have failed to produce any abnormal readings. Aside from a persistent but tolerable headache, my dad appears to be his usual self. He's still in the hospital, under observation.

Thank you all, for taking the time to read this thread and offer advice.

We're all doing the sceptics' version of keeping our fingers crossed, I'm sure.
