Common Questions and Answers about Stroke victims life expectancy

stroke

Avatar_n_tn what's the life expectancy of stroke victims with problems like mine? And what's the life expectancy for people who feed through belly tubes?
Avatar_f_tn You give this right up because you had an earlier surgery? Here are some of my thoughts. I was told the life expectancy of JIB patients is 55. I'm about to turn 54 and my life has gone downhill so drastically over past two years. 55 - possible? Anytime you take a supplement, try to take the citrate version (magnesium citrate, calcium citrate, etc). They absorb much quicker. Even though you suffer from "dumping" keep eating the veggies.
Avatar_m_tn So I will have no regret if I continue without medication dependency for some more years The other part of your question is more baffling. For African countries life expectancy is in 30syears+ whereas in Japan it is 80syears+ and India is 60syears+.This wide variation can be attributed to lifestyle *** natural environment.Right?
Avatar_n_tn I am a 34 year-old active, white female, average height, very healthy weight. I had an interior carotid dissection over a week ago, they think from a sports trauma (though I didn't do anything where I knowingly hurt myself). Luckily, I have 100% collateral blood flow, no brain damage, no shifting, etc...best possible outcome. Interestingly, in addition, I have tested positive for antiphospholipid antibodies (after testing false-positive for syphilis---common, who knew).
Avatar_n_tn I am 22 years old and have been diagnosed with Beta Thallassemia minor by a doctor. All my life I have felt tired, had palpitations (When I was younger), flatulence and difficulty concentrating and fuzziness. I cannot really look people directly in the eye sometimes because its too hard on my eyes (it strains them) even though I have perfect vision. Doctors have told me that I need no treatment and that Thallassemia has no symtpoms. I go to sleep tired and I wake up tired.
Avatar_n_tn My husband cares too, to the point that he told me the other day that if something would happen to me he will give up on life, I lol and told him, oh come on I know you'll find a young, pretty girl and marry her, well he wasn't kidding I guess, because he's been pretty sad and very quiet lately. He is usually quiet and with a hurricane category 5 attitude, but I try not to tell him too much, not more than he should know.
