Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke recovery time

stroke

Re Recovery Time, Thank you for posting this. My husband had a "mild" stroke on Dec 18, and we are still trying to figure out how to process all the changes that have occurred in our lives. We're not even sure what "mild" means for he had a stroke that left his entire left side affected (with little to no sensation), but his speech, mobility and brain functions seem relatively unimpaired.
My son who is 45 just had a mild stroke, 4days ago, now he can't talk properly, he knows what he wants to say, but the words won't come out!,& he can't write, nothing wrong with his hand, otherwise hes ok,he has headache but the doc told hm, with the medication he only had his right hand tingles & his mouth,, 2years ago he had meningites, he came out ok, nothing damage, Do you think it got something to do with the meningites he had???
A stroke can affect so many people in so many different ways. If his stroke is a mild one then he will hopefully recover quickly and regain most of his normal functions. If the stroke was severe then you may have a long road of recovery in front of you. I totally understand your anxiety. I went through it myself too. At least, you are not alone. Right now, my mother is staying in a stroke ward with other stroke victims. Fortunately, my family and I have been able to talk to other families.
I can tell you 100% that your emotions change right after a stroke. Crying is very common. I can tell you that I had about a 6 month time right after my stroke that I cried at least one time everyday, mosts days several times. You have to understand that some of this crying is not all of time emotional. Sometimes crying is like a reflex is the best way I can describe it. There is a trauma that happened to his brain.
My father, at the age of 65, went from COMPLETLY independant...to bordering at catatonic... he had a stroke 5/8...had complete loss of expressive language, and mild loss of receptive language...his major problem was in his mouth/tonge and throat...he was unable to swallow, talk clearly etc...but he was making improvments everyday...talking more, begining to try and eat etc... then 5 days ago (5/21) he had another stroke...this one was a "mini stroke.
My dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.
There are several references of stroke recovery ad one full chapter on stroke recovery. I have a 4 year daughter that has suffered a stroke and has left hemiparesis and epilepsy. She also has mild dysphagia. I have a exp working with stroke and TBI pts and have had training in a number of therapies. IMO, the absoulte best and most effective treatment out there for stroke pts is constraint induced movement therapy. I have been doing this with my daughter and she is making tremendous strides.
As far as I 'm concerned, I'm afraid that modern medicine can do little in stroke recovery, so I suggest you can take some alternative medicine. Meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis, reflexology, herbalmedicine, and so on are all alternative medicine, and I think there must be one can help you. My friend's mother caught stroke and we are looking for any treatment to help her. I think Traditional Chinese Medicine should be my best choice.
family, friends, my health and the well-being of those I love. I have devoted a large part of my time to helping other stroke survivors and my online stroke group is indexed on the major search engines and publications such as Stroke Smart and the Stroke Connection magazines. Please keep in touch!

I have read and been told that the recovery time is usually 1-2 weeks (with PACs being a typical symptom). For a pulmonary vein procedure as described above, what could be expected in terms of symptomology and time, based on experience at your institution? Your reply will be greatly appreciated, since I am quite worried that I may never get away from these PACs.
I was told before surgery that the recovery time is between 3 weeks to 6 months and now 2 years later i'm still struggling a little bit. My doctor told me the pain is something that i have to live with because its been so long. I'm just glad im not paralyzed (that's the silver lining). My cerebellum was 18mm and it tore my spine up. But I'm alive, I can function, I can walk and write, which are things i couldnt do after right after surgery.
3 weeks ago I had a mild stroke that did not affect any of my gross motor skills. I lost some functionality in my left hand, but now apparently have full use of the hand, but numbness at the end of 1 finger. 90% of the functionality of the muscles on the left side of my face has been restored. I speak very clearly and can modulate my tone effectively as long as I am not tire. Excellent recovery except for dealing with fatigue.
My husband has made a miraculous recovery. He also has problems with his left side since his stroke was on the right side of the brain in the occipital lobe. He was in ICU for three weeks, neurology for three weeks and rehab for three weeks. His deficits are diplopia (double vision), mild left side weakness and minor short term memory.
A lot of the confusion that your mom is experiencing will subside in the months to come. My husband (56 at the time) had the same kind of stroke as your mom. He was confused quite a bit. As the brain absorbs the blood caused by the burst vessel, your mom will come back to herself. My husbands stroke was 10 months ago. One of his deficits was mild loss of short term memory. It comes and goes. Some times he would get confused about where he was at but all that is fine now.
My husband, almost 60, was diagnosed 15+ years ago with RP, then 5 years ago with Glaucoma. Recently, he experienced a mild stroke, will virtually no loss of motor skills, speech or comprehension. But I noticed right away that his vision had changed substantially. Unfortunately, the medical community does not seem prepared to address the vision loss in any way at all. In fact, they seem to simply shrug it off -- he was already blind before the stroke, so that didn't cause it. Well DUH...
Plus a constant headache, most of the time the headaches were mild. I had mild eye ache but only occasionally. These side effects lasted about 6 months. Hope you are doing well. Sorry again about not getting back to you sooner.
Just do all you can to maintain a healthy lifestyle and i'm sure you have a much better chance than your dad did. Words like like trivial/mild are usually no cause for concern. Have an echo in 2-3 years time and see what happens, if new symptoms develop or what you have now seem to get worse then repeat sooner. Good luck.
new dry basal ganglia stroke in a very healthy 48 year old male. He has minimal symptoms, eg. facial droop with slight slurred speech, some slight difficulty writing and some slight difficulty finding the appropriate word at times. He complains of a foggy head - not thinking as clearly as before. A lot of fatigue but that has gotten much better with time. It has been 5 days since the onset. What are the chances of these symptoms resolving over time?
My mother, a healthy 61-year old, was admitted to ER after a mild stroke at her water aerobics class. Her condition deteriorated quickly in the ER as the stroke was hemmhoragic. It took hours to flush the Coumadin she had been taking for a thrombosis 2 years earlier.
Thank you for your explanation. Each time we ask "why" questions, the only answer we get from the doctor is "because of the stroke." Well.... why???? Never a clear answer or any further explanation at all. I was highly irritated that Antivan was prescribed clearly stating on the Rx bottle..."for itch." It just knocks my father out!
It would be great if you could tell us anything regarding his state and possible treatments or recovery time. Thank you for your time. ---- Here's a general overview of his condition from a report--- He is "non diabetic, non smoker, hypertensive, had a hemorrhagic stroke (pontine hemorrhage) on March 23, 2009. At that time he was unconscious. He was treated conservatively in ICU and HDU. Now patient is conscious, oriented but emotionally labile. His motor power is 2-3, tone increased.
She has no trouble emptying bladder and does have quite a bit of urine when she goes to bathroom. There is mild incontinence. She is home and independent with good recovery from the stroke. She lives alone. Prior to stroke she was on estrogen for several decades. She is 85 years old. Is this from lingering neurological complications? Will this improve with time? Should she have a urinalysis on a regular basis when no pain is involved? THANK YOU!
Where can I find more information on stroke with negative MRI? I have found one article by M. Alberts. Does anyone else have this situation? I was diagnosed as having a stroke 10 years ago.
I see it is a box of shredded leaves which people burn and inhale to acheive a mild intoxication. I still have trouble holding steady sleep patterns as well as eating habits. Most persistent and unchanging are lingering hallucinations. Objects wave, grow and shrink, vibrate. Tracers follow moving objects and and things begin to look fake, or 2-D, while shifting in color. The good news is i have not lost any motor control.
seemed to be based on their personal experience with the few SSHL patients they had cared for. Most people seem to think there is a primary recovery time & a longer term recover time. My ENT's answers to your question have varied from "All recovery will take place in the first month" to "Primary recovery period of 6 months followed by slower recovery up to 18 months".
One thing is they had my dad on dilantin from the time of his stroke until just this past month. While he was on this, he would do weird things like wanting to go home whenever he was already home. Every day he seams to get a little better. It is a long hard road, and we have been through many ups and downs, but hopefully he will continue to get better. Good luck...
