My mother in law had a Brain surgery last Monday for some frontal lobe tumor that lasted for 3 hours. When finished the doctors said it went very well and they excised the tumor and sent it to pathology.
After few hours she waked up and all of her functions were normal and she was stable. But few hours later she had heart complications (maybe arrhythmia) and hypotension, and they had to put her under anesthesia again (for 3 days), after that when she waked up she had some sort of convulsions and they had to induce coma for another 3 days. But now they just can't wake her up !!!! all of her vitals and ICP are stable.
Why did that happen? how often dose it happen? how long is she gona be asleep? what are her options? what can we do?
