Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

Blood clot

07/20/2009

Question:

I have a girlfriend that I just found out that she has a blood clot in the head and she is on medication for it and my question is. Is there any other treatments besides surgery and they told her that she needs to have surgery to fix it but I was wondering if there are other ways to help heal the blood clots

Answer:

If they think she has a subdural hematoma, this needs surgery.
