Hi and thanks for the reply.With your history of having 4 cardiac events, surgery is definitely not an option any neurosurgeon would be keen on considering. Yes, this does sound like traumatic brain injury. A subdural hematoma was evacuated and you were in coma as well which means that some brain matter was indeed damaged during the process and since brain tissue is the slowest to recover rather it does not recover but duties performed by the areas damaged are taken up by other areas of the brain. And since, those areas are not trained to handle those specific tasks, it takes a lot of re training to adapt.The best and foremost thing to do is constant physiotherapy administered by a trained physiatrist and continuous retraining exercises.You should discuss with the neurologist for referral to a recognized physiotherapy program.I would also suggest that you have your echocardiogram done to see what your ejection fraction is, since a low output from a damaged heart makes it difficult to pump blood aqnd oxygen to brain tissue for optimum function.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.

Alright - and your ejection fraction was?

Do'nt know
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 1 year ago.
Okay - you might want to check it, it is most likely low and this can cause the heart to have low output and hinder blood flow to the brain. A carotid doppler and an MRI DWI are other tests you should ask your doctor about.
