My dad had a bleeding stroke about a month ago. The first one, doctors told us was treatable, the second one was massive and occurred in the brainstem and was inoperable. They told us he had very minimum brain function and would never recover. We had two choices: wait until he had another stroke or remove the ventilator. It was the hardest decision we had to make, but we chose to take him off life support and be by his side while he passed. I find myself researching this awful thing like crazy, wondering if we did the right thing. It's not like we can change our minds but living with the feeling that you gave up on a loved one is something I hope none of you ever have to experience.

My father had a brain hemorrhage. Generally, doctors give two options as treatment for brain hemorrhage, first by medicine, second surgery. After the CT scan, immediate surgery decision can be taken if it is big one. For small hemorrhages, doctor prefers medicine through veins. When the patient will come back to conscious state, can't be told.
