Avatar f tn You should go back to your doctor and ask what has been done to prevent another stroke, you may need to see a new doctor, which is perfectly fine. Either way ask for what therapy should be followed to address any deficits and ask for a doctors order for those therapies, which may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy. You should never have been allowed out of the hospital without some explanation of preventative measues being taken. Does he have any deficits?

Limbs have gained full mobility in minutes. speech has vastly improved in minutes. balance back in minutes. Fits have calmed down to virtually zero. Thinking is clearer.
Avatar n tn But I still think one of the most important things to victims is to not go nuts over how much their accident has caused inconvenience to others. My wife is very much that way. Very sensitive about not hurting and inconveniencing others. Almost obsessed with it, so I do my best to protect her from any fear that she cannot or will not get back to where she would be disappointing people.

Avatar f tn Ok so my dad suffered a stroke about 2 years ago. The cause was basically everything. Alcohol consumption, high blood pressure, etc. Prior to the stroke he was an alcoholic. A bad one. I would come home from school at 3pm and he would already be slurring his words and stumbling around. After the stroke he was a lot better. My family started calling the stroke a miracle because he recovered pretty fast, got a lot nicer, and his alcohol consumption was extremely low.
