My daughter in law has had two brain Haemorrhages, the first

Resolved Question:

My daughter in law has had two brain Haemorrhages, the first aged 14yrs. The second aged 34yrs pius a stroke. The dr's described the blood vessels as "like a bunch of grapes at the base of the brain which can rupture at any time". In hospital she was operated on, & had the suspect vessels glued to prevent them rupturing further.Now aged 48 I notice her gait is worsening & she stumbles quite a lot.We accept these conditions, But as a family worry a lot about her mental state,Is her personality affected by the state of the brain? As she is aging she has become a nasty person & has battles with her daughter, & husband, & has become very distant towards me, where we used to be great friends. My son called down to see me yesterday saying he intends seeking a divorce as he can't tolerate her "moods" any more. I do hope you can offer some advice for me as I don't wish to see my family go through this. Thank you in anticipation. Mrs Vivienne XXXXXX

Thank you Dr. David for answering my question. At the moment my daughter in law doesn't take any medication as she is afraid it will mean returning to hospital. I intend giving this information to my son when I see him on Wednesday,& having this information may be able to convince her to speak to their family practitioner. Yours gratefully. V XXXXXX
