Double Concussion & Broken Nose ~ After effects
My 17 year old son was doing ROTC Maneuvers at school on October 2, 2012 and suffered a double-concussion and a broken nose. He had intense headaches, staggered, was utterly confused with short-term memory loss, stayed nauseated, couldn't eat, couldn't handle loud or sudden noises and bright light sent him into orbit for over a week. He is still having some short-term memory problems, issues with loud noises or bright lights. But by far, the worst problem is his inability to keep food down unless he's taking Zofran before meals. He's lost 17 lbs since October 2 due to the problems with keeping food down and a lack of appetite. The doctors have done an ultrasound (normal except for a 16 mm cyst on the left kidney pole), a C.T. scan that we're waiting for the results, and is scheduled for an endoscopy. Since my son had no problems eating before the concussion, I still believe this is due to the injury. But, only one website mentions continued nausea as a symptom of PCS. Has anyone else suffered from extreme nausea more than a month after the injury?
