Hi,

My father was having an acoustic neuroma tumor in his brain and last week the tumor was removed by surgery.


Before the surgery his blood pressure is around 140 but after the surgery his blood pressure increased to around 200 and caused internal bleeding in his brain. After doctor sedeted him, his blood pressure drop to around 120.


Because of the bleeding now he still in coma, doctor unable to wake him up after stop sedeted him and now his blood pressure back to 200 today. My father did not have blood pressure problem before this. Is it normal for blood pressure to increase after brain tumor removal surgery?


Thanks.

Hi, thanks for asking.

My father still not wake up.

According to doctor, my father's brain is not bleeding anymore.


Few days ago, doctor told us that my father is having serious lung infection which is caused by the breathing machine that help him to breath. Doctor suggest to have a surgery for the lung and i was told that this will be a high risk surgery.


This will be the fourth surgery in one month, my father look weak and slim now. Today doctor told me that the best outcome my father could have is forever coma except miracle happen. Should we try this lung surgery?

Only you and your family can answer that question. Have a good long think about it and talk with the doctor about everything that could happen
