Thanks, Ana. Sorry to hear about your brother. Hope he is able to recover. My mom had a couple of strokes about 20 years ago, but she made a full recovery and is still with us.
I researched what would happen to someone in a coma for an extended period, and blood clots is a concern due to their inactivity. According to what I read, signs can include bruising, a warm feeling to the touch or swelling in the legs, particularly the calf muscles. So I think they could look for that.
This is exactly the feedback I am looking for.
I’m a little worried that the Doctor talks down to the nurse (i.e. mansplains too much). I tried not to include too much technical jargon, but including more might enhance the drama.
Thanks again for reading. Your tips are always so invaluable.
