Question by Mary Odle: What could cause a re-bleed in a ischemic stroke?
My husband was told he had an massive ischemic stroke. He was recovering and doing well except for a persistent headache. Then less than 2 weeks later he had another bleed which was a major set back. Could it have been a hemorrhagic stroke & not an ischemic? Why didn’t the doctor or nurse pick up on this? What would cause another bleed in ischemic stroke?
Answer by Bruce
There is no bleed with ischemic stroke so how could it re-bleed?
