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. He never complained of headaches to me, but I could feel something was different. He luckily was working close to the hospital. He collapsed and hit his head on a piece of equipment. He had emergency surgery and they removed a bloodclot 3/4 size of baseball. Just today he opened both eyes and it was fabulous. The Dr.'s say his speech will be impaired but don't know to what extent.
Avatar m tn Hi,my 57 year old mother suffered a hemorrhagic stroke,she was pretty healty before this,but she does smoke.The doc said it was 4 cm and it was on her left side,her vision is affected and her capability to read. 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. My question is why the docs didn't give her any medication while in the hospital or after?
Avatar n tn My aunt had a hemorrhagic stroke on 8/24/06. Her right side is paralyzed, she cannot speak (except for: yes, no, okay, oh God, alright, stop), she has a PEG and a PICC Line, swallowing is weak, she seems to be in excruiating pain nearly constantly, has difficulty evacuating, seems to be in a severe depression. She suffered a couple of set backs (pneumonia, bowel blockage, and now the pain) which slowed up her progress.
Avatar m tn I’ve used this site many times reading others experiences with stroke I thought it was time for me to share mine. My mother had a hemorrhagic stroke 3 months ago. Her Coumadin levels were high and she had a benign cystic mass that bled, it wasn’t related to her blood pressure at all. She was unable to talk, eat, walk and move the right side of her body. The second day after the stroke they drained her brain from the excessive fluid. Her first word was “dry".
Avatar n tn I greatly appreciate your stories of recovery after hemorrhagic stroke. My 81-year-old husband had this type of stroke on 7/3. It was a rather large bleed in the back right portion of his brain. Many of your experiences sound exactly like mine. He is on a ventilator and feeding tube, although he has been breathing for up to 10 hours without the vent. He has just begun opening his eyes and blinking them, and also lifting his right arm a bit.
Avatar n tn I noticed a number of questions about recovery time from strokes. The most recovery occurs in the first 3 months. The next 3 months is the next most recovery and the next 6 months the next. After about a year some recovery will occur but the pace is typically very slow. Think of it like driving a car. The first 3 months it goes 100 miles an hour. The next 3 50. The next 6 months about 25 and after that about 5 miles an hour. It's important to take full advantage of early recovery periods.
Avatar n tn Just my thoughts, as I have gone through a similar experience. My comments posted in Feb. 2005 "Hemorrhagic Stroke Recovery". My 55 yr old mom did not follow commands for the dr's, she often looked at them like she had no idea what they were saying, they would say "give me a thumbs up" or "stick your tongue out". They asked her "what year it was", her name" and she had no idea what they were asking.
Avatar n tn My 83 yo MIL had a hemorrhagic stroke on Saturday (8/3). She is a long term user of Coumadin due to previous DVT. Fortunately, she was in a public place when this happened, otherwise she almost certainly would not have sought help. Today (8/6), she is being moved from step-down to a rehab facility. Her only apparent problems are nausea, dizziness and general weakness (the bleed was at the base of the skull). Of course, she is also depressed.
Avatar f tn My husband (age 57) had a hemorrhagic stroke last year in July. The stroke mainly struck his eyesight. He now has double vision. His short term memory was affected but it has gotten a lot better. It is still very early in your moms recovery. I would say the short term memory will get better, but, how much is anyones guess. My husbands doctors never once said anything about Alzheimers. Find out what areas of your moms brain was hit. The hippocampus controls short term memory.
Avatar f tn The doctors said that he suffered from stroke since he has a HIGH BLOOD. Diagnosis was hemorrhagic stroke and said it was fatal. MAy i know if he has the chance to recover considering the period of his coma. I sthere achance to recover if the the doctor says his brain is dead already. How come yesterday he responded to any pain when pinch. is this a good sign?
Avatar n tn My mom had a severe hemorrhagic stroke on the left side of her brain on Nov 11. It is almost her third week and she does not seem to know who we are. She is awake and moves her left hand and leg but no movement on her right side.Can someone please tell me how long it usually takes before they start to gain their cognitive skills back?
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 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 n tn You will be amazed at how he bounces back. My husband (56 at the time) had a stroke last July and he has problems with his eyes. He has developed double vision. He, at first, was paralyzed on his left side but all that came back. He's almost back to his old self. So, chin up and smile. Although, no one knows the extent that your husband will recover you can be assured that he's on his way. Make sure you find out what kind of stroke he's had (bleed or clot) and ask about deficits...
Avatar f tn Unfortunately To date, there have been no studies that have evaluated either the prevention or the management of delirium post-stroke. I agree with the doctors as the time taken for recovery may be in months or even years. But preventing malnutrition and removal of the cause of stroke helps in quick recovery. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn I am eternally grateful for all of my father's doctors and what they did for him. Stroke recovery is a slow process, not only for the stroke victim, but for the family as well. It takes a while to process the event and all of the pain. Dad was making a miraculous recovery considering the extent of his brain injury. He regained great movement on his left, affected side and was walking with the use of a walker. Mentally he is still himself, with a few more hiccups.
Avatar f tn My father is 51, he suffered a hemorrhagic stroke in match of 08. we were told he probably wouldnt wake up. drs say he was unresponsive and only gave us negative news he may not live he may never talk ect. ect. in june he woke up and making slow progress. he had brain surgery to drain the fluid on his brain, but the bleed is too close to his brain stem so they couldnt do anything about that. he is hypertensive. his bp was 225/140 when he was admitted.
Avatar f tn Then the doctors that day told us that my mom suffered a hemorrhagic stroke due to the blood clot. They did another little hole in her brain for drainage of blood. With that her Right side of her brain was still swollen with a lot of pressure, then they removed her Bone Flap to relieve the pressure.
Avatar n tn What is the long term prognosis for a 78 yo suffering a hemorrhage ( 4-5cm) of the basal ganglia ( right side of brain)w/ left sided paralysis (severe) , limited aphasia, obvious cognitive and memory issues? At this time the person is two weeks post stroke. The information I have come across does provide positive encouragement for rehab but does not provide time frames . For instance, if the person survives the first two weeks post stroke,will the person likely make it to the 30th day?
Avatar n tn In my opinion, recovery from a stroke can be slow. As I understand it, speed of recovery may be gaged by the patients health and age prior to the stroke. You might want to ask your doctor if they would allow adding liquid amino acid sup. to their diet to start. Apparently, stroke victims have a hard time with the uptake of food proteins.
Avatar m tn Time, time, time.... Your fiancé needs time to heal. 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.
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?
Avatar n tn My sister-in-law suffered a hemorrhagic stroke (intracerebral hemorrhage) on May 18th. They have done a ventriculostomy. They are telling us that she will have slurred speech, minimal use of her right arm and walk with a limp, if she survives. They have her in a medicated coma and are feeding her through a tube in her nose. They say they will keep her in the coma for 3-4 weeks. Is this normal? She fell in the driveway while mowing the yard, the gas man found her approx. 30-45 mins.
