Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Thanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.
I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information

What's your question about your dad?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
after the surgery to remove the clot from his brain, he is having sever headaches and a CT scan has shown air pockets in his brain.
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
The doctors treating him have recommended blowing into balloons to remove the air pockets. Is this a recommended treatment for this?

Is he having any problems with his lungs and breathing?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
no can i please continue online?
Customer: replied 5 days ago.
no problem with lungs and breathing just severe headaches

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

Are you saying that his doctors say the blowing into balloons will help with the headaches?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
they claim blowing into the balloons should remove the air pockets and relieve him of the headaches

OK

What that will do is help reduced the intracranial pressure in his brain which not only would help his headaches but also help his body resorb the air pockets

Please let me know if you need any more information
