    Wouldn't the brain bleed be an effect of the stroke as opposed to a cause? Anyhow, I think the technical name for this is a hematoma, perhaps if you run that through a search engine you can find some information. Presumably the person him/herself is in medical care and not waiting till tomorrow.

    All I know is that strokes can be caused from bleeding in the brain or lack of oxygen to the brain. I hope someone here can be of help.

    i have waited all day for the doctor to phone me as promised and he has gone home without phoning !!!!

    however i have spoken to my friend and he is able to talk ok though he is not really himself and he is confused.

    i will make sure i talk to the doctor tomorrow

    i'm sorry this happened to your mum, arronkatie, i think you are right they can do more now. also it depends how bad the stroke was. i'll post more info when i know how he is.
    thanks
