Avatar m tn Stroke can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of blockage to an artery. For this therapy with clot dissolving drugs (thrombolytics), should be initiated early. Aspirin, an anti-thrombotic drug, is given immediately after an ischemic stroke to reduce the likelihood of having another stroke. Tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), needs to be given within 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms, this restores the blood supply to the affected part.

Avatar n tn Everyone please remember, they can hear you and need to be kept informed with what is going on not just with their recovery, but also family issues, the weather, success stories about stroke recovery etc. Strokes cause extreme depression so it's good to constantly reinforce that they are not fighting alone and that you are striving to help them improve. We have combined an arsenal to fight for my father's recovery. Prayer, faith, hope, love, energy healing, research etc.
Avatar m tn 1 year ago my mother had a hemorrhagic stroke that left her paralyzed on the right side, unable to swallow or do anything for herself. Today my mother's weakness on her right side is almost undetectable. she is eating regular foods, and walking around with a walker. The best thing you can do is get involved and learn as much as you can about her specific stroke and what to except. Use them for a guide, but remember everyone heals differently. I remember my mom did the same thing to me....

Avatar f tn Hi my fiance is 46 & he had a hemorrhagic stroke on left side of the brain while at work on April 26, 2010.

She was in the hospital 5 days,her blood pressure,blood work,everything looks good which is very weird!Other then that she was conscious all the time,no memory loss or anything like that.

Avatar f tn Hang in there. My girlfriend was healthy when she had a hemorrhagic stroke in June, 2009. It has been a very difficult road of recovery. She gets stronger as time goes on, but for the first 3 or 4 months progress seemed slow if at all sometimes. She still has some effects but she is certainly getting better.

Avatar m tn My father aged 80 had a massive stroke in December of 2007. He was kept in ICU for three weeks but he was always able to breath on his own. My father stayed in the hospital for about a month before he was transferred to a Skilled Nursing Facility. My father's stroke was hemorrhagic and he has not yet recovered very much movement on his paralyzed side. He has however become much more alert, and consistently participates in rehab 4 or 5 times per week.

Avatar m tn Hello, My 89 year old grand mother, residing in India, has recently suffered a hemorrhagic brain stroke. She lives at home, but stays on a bed for the whole day as she does not have much control. When we talk to her she cannot respond and tears leak out of her eyes. She can now unconsciously move her legs and her right wrist. When we bring a glass (she only takes liquids) near her mouth she opens her eyes and her mouth a little so we can pour some into her mouth.
Avatar m tn First of all, I hope you and your wife an excellent recovery. You want a good recovery story? Well, here's one. My husband is truly a walking miracle. He had a hemorrhagic stroke in July 2007. Three of his doctors told me they didn't expect him to make it. My husband is walking, talking, eating, taking care of himself and doesn't need anyone with him all day. He had a very large bleed...12cm...which is considered massive.

Avatar m tn My 52 year old son had a severe hemorrhagic stroke 11 months ago. He wants to sleep all the time and is very lethargic when doing therapy. He has shown very slow recovery. He had his trake removed but still cannot eat due to coughing, even though he will swallow up to 40 times with only 5 coughs. He is getting feeling in his leg and has moved it slightly several times. His paralyzed arm is just now beginning to move slightly. What can I expect?

Aspirin, an anti-thrombotic drug, is given immediately after an ischemic stroke to reduce the likelihood of having another stroke. Some stroke patients do appear to have 100 percent recovery. And many regain a great deal of their abilities.
