Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery odds

stroke

The neurosurgeon did not offer much hope for us to survive the stroke nor in her recovery. She has already beat the odds. My mom was in ICU for 3 weeks and step-down 1 week and in rehab hospital for two months now. I have come to learn the dr.'s don't like or really now prognosis on recovery because everyone recovers differently. I have been told over and over again they don't know why some gain more function than others. My mom pulled out her breathing tube which she had for 2.
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...
her doc and ask him/her if they expect your mom to have a complete recovery from the stroke and what you can do to help out. Sometimes simple little things like flash cards like kids use in memory training work well with helping out w. her speech and having her repeat what she sees on the cards to help her out w. her diction and as far as her gait and walking goes there are simple things that the PT Dept.
Hi, I posted a while back. My dad survived a massive stroke 4 weeks ago. However, against all the odds, and after being told he had only hours to live he has survived. He is bed ridden but very 'with it' although sleepy at times. He seems to have no signs of life on his left side and obviously the question is does this mean that it is like this for ever. My dad says that his left arm and leg are plastic and he doesn't like to acknowledge that they are actually there.
I am 58 and 7 months post stroke (right side). While my hand and arm have improved, my balance and walking have not. My stroke was in the cerebellum. Is there still hope for continued improvement in walking?
With all due respect, I would rather not hear from the nay sayers. I know my odds of a recovery are not good. I am just looking for a lifeline at this point; anything.
I surrvived a stroke almost 6yrs. ago...2 weeks after my son was born, I was 29 at the time. I am now 35 and about 3mos. pregnant. It was not an easy decision, but I have been stable all this time and the docs said that I should be fine. There is one other person who I write to who had 2 more babies after having her stroke. It definitely helps to have to her to talk to....It's not an easy decision!
Sorry but the odds of him being like he was before the stroke and surgeries are not good, but never give up hope. The human mind is an amazing thing.
Bottom line is that I feel my surgery was very successful and recovery will be quick. I know there are others out there that have had success. Yes it was scary deciding on the surgery, but I'm glad I did.
Or, you could hope for that PLUS do some therapy on your own which may increase you odds of some or total recovery. Best of luck and remember, never give up.

One thing is clear, this is a person that is not only ZERO support for me but who is clearly toxic to my recovery. I think I'll have to try and find someone who gives a **** to come and watch the kids so I can get to a meeting. Life really ***** sometimes.

Yesterday I posted about a friend of mine that is being treated at UCSF by one of the top stroke neurologists in the US. A few days ago he lapsed into a coma in Cancun. The Doc at UCSF gave him about a 1% chance of ever regaining consciousness. Yesterday he was semi conscious and responded to a few questions from a nurse, but not the doctors. Today he is conscious and has been speaking on the phone. Cognitive functions appear to be intact.
That's usually the cause of a hemorrhagic stroke. My husband dealt with high blood pressure since he was in his 20's. He's 57 now. He never kept it under control. When the paramedics came, he was half comatosed and didn't know where he was or anything. You can read my posts and about his recovery by clicking on my name. To make a long story short, he had confusion for weeks after the stroke and still has moments every now and then.
My wife has experienced a Lupus stroke aka cerebral vasculitis. All the test were negative for stroke the first time and it was small and misdiagnosed as vertigo. Then the big stroke hit and again all test negative but she could not use her right side. Then the did a angiogram (ink induced prior to MRI), and found the infarction, they started cytoxin and we though things were getting better but not her stomach is having issues. Vomiting, rash, diarrhea.
If I understand, your father recently had a stroke and the underlying cause is cardiovascular disease and resulted in a stroke. That occurs when a blood clot is dislodge in the vessel and with blood flow goes to the brain and blocks a segment of the brain to blood supply. The result can minor with very little impairment or serious causing a loss of mobility and speech.
I would like to know about post-op and recovery, success rates, and complications of atrial ablation for a-fib.
Approximately 10 days ago he was admitted to ER with symptoms of stroke with near paralysis of left hand and leg. He initially had droopy mouth and could not smile but was able to several hours later. He has had MRI of head and later of neck. Nothing showed up. All other tests showed nothing. Spoke with doctor (neurologist) and requested whole spine MRI which his boss did not want to do.
