477009 tn?1210876873 She is almost 60 and this is her 2nd hemorragic stroke. The first she was released from hospital in less than a week. But this one was worse and at the basil Ganglia. She had a tube inserted in her brain to drain the blood and fluid due to the they could not do surgery. Every day has had a new result. She has spoken to us, answered questions correctly. Regained all motor skills in her left side.
Avatar f tn This June, she fell off her wheel chair which landed her in the ER where the doctor discovered she was severely dehydrated and ordered she be put in a nursing home, giving me one week to find her a nursing home in Seattle, Washington (homes in Alaska all have long wait lists). She has now been in a nursing home for over 3 month's and I am learning a lot about her since her life after her stroke.
Avatar n tn Again because I answered your other posting, seek another hospital or in the meantime get an attorney to stop the hospital from what they are threatening to do. And throw a big stink over it and threaten to sue the hospital if they kill your mother.

713582 tn?1298262321 My dear Oma had a mini stroke this morning.
Avatar n tn I had two strokes four weeks ago while in the hospital for head aches. I spent 5 days in the intensive care unit and another five in a rehabilitation center. We expect very minimal residual effects, but I still walk with difficulty. Months ago I planned a trip to California with my husband. We will need to leave in ten days, but I don't want to put myself in danger.
Avatar n tn I wanted to ask a doctor or neurologist, what the future looks like for stem cells and treating not only recent stroke victims, which is important, but also long time stroke victims and brain regeneration. There seems to be promise to have stem cells treat damaged/dead parts of the brain, and have regrowth of these areas. Any professional opinions on the subject besides just what we hear in the news?

Avatar f tn How long do you stay in the hospital typically when you have the baby? I'm getting an epidural and I know you stay longer vs if you weren't getting one but I'm curious to see how long I'm gonna have to stay so I can pack enough clothes to wear and for baby...

Avatar n tn My mother is 83 and up until February 24, 2011 she was active and never had any health related issues. She would brag how the only time she was ever in a hospital was to give birth. My mother has high blood pressure and is a diabetic. On the 24th she suffered a massive brain stem stroke. According to the neurologist and the GP, both sides of the brain stem was affected. Many people have said that theses stroke victims usually do not last more than 30 days. Tomorrow will be a month.
Avatar f tn My brother is 46 years old and had a stroke on 9-19-13 on left side of brain.My whole family is devastated.He left work early because he didn't feel right and had vision problems.His stroke happened in the waiting room of the ER in which they started the t-PA drip right away to dissolve the blood clot.From there he was transported to another hospital with a neuro dept.At that hospital we were told that he would never be the same,etc.
Avatar f tn How long should I plan to be in the hospital? Does it depend on my insurance? Or how the birth goes? Or hospital policy? Not sure who to ask.
