My brother had a heart attack in July, needs bypass for 5 arteries. One fixed already with 5 stents. One day after starting blood thinners, started losing vision. Found out he had a brain bleed at the base of his brain from the blood thinners. Now, 6 wks later, surgery postponed since brain bleed is still active. What are the alternatives, or are there? Time is of the essence.
