On Thursday 6/5 my dad took a hard fall at the nursing home. By Sunday 6/8 we were transferring him due to a positive CT showing subdural bleed. He was lethargic and declining, seemed to be showing increasing PSP signs. During his hospitalization he was started on steroids to absorb the bleed, he made drastic improvements and by the time we were discharged he was talking in near full sentences, feeding himself, laughing and even asking a few questions! This short time was such a blessing as we had not heard him talk like this or show such attentive facial expressions in such a long time. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I realize the steroids are absorbing the bleed, but obviously they steroids also relieved pressure elsewhere and allowed him to speak again! We started him on turmeric in hopes of keeping pressure/inflammation down to the area. Any responses are appreciated! Thank u !
