The [[surgery]] went well and Sidas appeared to be recovering. He would need long term medication, but Dr. Chase assured Sidas that he would be released in about a week if everything went well. However, when Sidas started talking, he wasn't making sense. His vital signs monitor set off an alarm. After examining him, Dr. Chase realized he was having a [[stroke]]. He was given [[oxygen]].

Sidas's stroke was successfully treated and there was no permananent [[brain]] damage. However, it appeared that they had done the spleenectomy for nothing. Although the symptoms and tests all pointed to TTP, it wouldn't explain why he failed to improve after the spleenectomy. Dr. Taub thought it might be [[vasculitis|CNS vasculitis]], but something would have shown up on the CT Scan. Dr. Hadley thought it might be [[DIC]], but there was no [[hemmorhage|hemmorhaging]]. Dr. Taub suggested [[pancytopenia|acquired pancytopenia]], but the patient's [[White blood cells|WBC]] count was normal. Dr. Foreman thought it might be a [[toxin]] and Dr. Chase pointed out non-standard toxins don't show up on a tox screen. Dr. House ordered an [[environmental scan]] and tests for non-standard toxins that might cause the symptoms.
