stroke

Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar n tn 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".
Avatar n tn She is getting PT twice a week and will be going back to speech therapy, although the first time around was unsuccessful. Part of recovery takes the cooperation of the patient..it often seems that is the part we are missing.
779793 tn?1235859826 He released the dog to us with instructions to give 1/4 to 1/2 Valium every 12 hours. He seems dazed and in another world. He can't walk, stand or even lay properly. He has rigidity in his neck, but he can move his head and right side. He tries to right himself but can't yet so he can't go outside to potty. I know it is a brain injury/concussion. He hasn't vomited or lost control of bowel/bladder. Update: After 18 hours, he is still having problems with coordination and can't sit or stand.
203342 tn?1328740807 Panting, drinking water like crazy, back legs very weak and lost a lot of muscle, eating like a wild dog,up all night has to pee all the time even in the house which she NEVER EVER did before. She lost her eyesight but that doesn't bother her much. She is on the medication and we shall see if it helps. She just started it a week ago. It might be a good idea to start thinking about helping your die. It might be the kindest thing you can do at this point. Right now he is suffering.
Avatar m tn Did you try to take the dog outside? The dog may need emergency medical attention. You should take the dog to a 24hr. Emergency Animal Hospital. There could be so many things wrong with that poor dog. Please update us on the dog's condition.
16887106 tn?1452146691 We saw the neurologist today and she is expected to make a full recovery. Actually the neurologist was surprised at how quickly she was coming back from it. Unfortunately, she is still incontinent. Although she sometimes can tell me when she has to urinate, she often has dribble and sleeping issues. She also has fecal incontinence but that is really easy to deal with as long as I do not use a diaper on her. I am open to suggestions for how to continue to deal with the urinary incontinence.
Avatar n tn I woke up this morning at 6am and came downstairs to find my 12 year old dalmation suffering from some sort of stroke or seizure. She couldnt stand and was in real discomfort, her eyes moving very fast from side to side.After ringing vet after vet i got in touch with some one 45mins away and was told to take her to the Animal Hospital. When i arrived and the vet done several checks she told me it was not good news and the best option was to have her put to sleep.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your comments. Actually, no, I'm not doing very well with this to be honest. Lucy was long ago by a trainer determined to be a "prodigy dog", meaning, one that leans certain things almost instantly by observation. The slang many use would be a "Lassie dog" type of dog.
363281 tn?1518219421 Anyway, if any of you have had dogs with this similar problem, I would appreciate hearing from you. I love animals so much, and I adore my dog. She was actually my mother's dog, and when she died, became mine and dad's, having her sick like this is almost like watching my beloved mother being sick all over, it is super hard on my dad. Thanks for any answers.
Avatar f tn Sounds more like a disk/disc issue to me...IVDD (Intervertabral Disk Disease)....There are many things that can help & yes, he can recover.... Strokes are very rare in dogs!!!! What medications does your Vet have him on???Anti-inflammatories, pain meds, joint supplements & steroids are some of the choices..... Acupuncture works beautifully for Spine issues, herniated discs, etc.... Complete cage rest is vital for recovery...Google IVDD & see what you think..
Avatar n tn She seemed to be on her way to recovery, walking to get up and drink and eat. On the fourth day after surgery, she vomited a few times and later in the day developed very runny diareaha and became very weak. I took her back to the vet specialist hospital where the surgery was performed. They were treating her for the acute intestinal distress, said she was responding to treatment that evening.
Avatar f tn Your story breaks my heart as I lost my 14-year-old dog, Chica, to this exact disease on January 4. The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood.
Avatar n tn My friends cats also started this around the same time. My dog first threw up his food on Tuesday. Since then he's really not eaten much. He turns away completely from his food but was eating some treats. Now today (Sunday the 30th) he really doesn't want that either. He's eating grass and throws up clear mucus. I did call the vet the other day and they said to make sure he was out of the heat and drinking. I am taking him in tomorrow.
Avatar m tn Hi, I sure hope your dog gets better soon. Hopefully she will make a full recovery. I don't know if you have tried to google for information yet, but....if you do, be sure to use medical terms, to get the best results on the google search. I just did a quick search...for... Acute Canine Paralysis There are many things that could possibly cause the sudden paralysis that your dog is experiencing. Please take the time to "Google" using the same terminology that I did.

Avatar n tn Most gains in a person's ability to function in the first 30 days after a stroke are due to spontaneous recovery. For a stroke survivor, the rehabilitation goal is to be as independent and productive as possible. That may mean improving physical abilities. Often old skills have been lost and new ones are needed. It's also important to maintain and improve a person's physical condition when possible. A person's family has a key role in rehabilitation.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
Avatar n tn Hi, i suggest you try and find a vet who wants to find out what is wrong with your dog. Clearly you care about your dog or you wouldnt be posting. And clearly there is something wrong with your dog. What is concerning is your vet didnt bother to determine what is wrong with your dog. Instead they put you out of the door with some pain killers and a bill. I learnt the hard way 1 month and a few days ago that you need to be your own vet when your pet is sick.
Avatar n tn Epilepsy later in life can be a one-time thing or caused by something terminal like a brain tumor or stroke. The best thing you can do for your dog in the recovery stage is to be calm and matter-of-fact. If you send out scared and upset vibes, the dog picks up on it and doesn't understand why you're upset. So take some deep, cleansing breaths, and above all, stay calm and collected.
