stroke

Avatar n tn I know this does not help much, but it is true. The brain swelling depends on the size of the stroke and I believe it takes a few weeks, but best to ask the Dr. on that one. Regarding the neglect, you can help this situation by making people approach her from her left side..also place her bed so she has to look to her left to see people enter the room..hold her left hand, tap on her left arm...try to make her aware of that side.

I have been amazed at the correlation (and sometimes lack of correlation) between my hr and bp.
