ANSWER: Hello Old Friend,
Problems at home kept me busy. My brother in law has been detected to have stomach cancer. He underwent three cycles of chemo followed by surgery and was released from the hospital yesterday.
Starting a thinner like aspirin would be ok but I would not like you to start Clopidogrel or something of the sort. Since the CT was fine I really do not suspect anything serious, unless they have totally bungled up the scan. I would suggest you start a simple anti inflammatory analgesic like ibuprofen and let me know.
I am sorry for being out of touch for long.
All the best

QUESTION: sorry to hear about your brother in law.try to find out if dull acre on top of head after 15 days og head injury is sign of bleeding
Do you actually see blood oozing out? But you can rule out internal bleeding, when that happens the effects are very severe, a minor headache is never an indication of internal bleeding. Tomorrow I am attending a medical conference where I am sure to meet a number of specialists, I shall check with them.
