Common Questions and Answers about Left brain stroke recovery


Avatar f tn He is still unable to move the entire left arm and fingers, and his left leg. His personality has changed, although he appears to have recovered about 90% of his previous cognitive ability. Depression after the stroke has been severe. Does anyone know of treatment that might help my son reecover the use of the paralyzed limbs? He is only 31 yrs. old, and has gone from a healthy, happy young man, to a depressed disabled person.
Avatar n tn t say when he had his stroke, please remember that stroke recovery is a long slow process - so a couple of months (if that's the case) is really early on. Please tell him to keep up the hard work.

Avatar f tn Hi, My husband had a stroke caused by a brain bleed on 10/19/09. He is only 55years old. He still has numbness on his entire left side starting at his head, face, arm, foot. But now he is also experiencing a vibration that he did not have when he had the stroke. The doctor said this happens, but the vibration is so severe it is painful. It never stops. Has anyone experience this and does anyone have any information about this? Does it last long? It has been 2 months since the vibration started.
Avatar n tn s condition.The start of recovery after a stroke depends on which part of the brain is affected and the severity of the brain damage. Some spontaneous recovery does take place for most people soon after the stroke. Abilities that may have been lost begin to return. The process may take place quickly over the first few weeks, and then, it may be stable. It is a good sign that your father is able to breathe on his own and is coming off the ventilator slowly.
Avatar m tn It's been 2yrs since my stroke and I have no voluntary movement in my left arm or hand. Is there any possibilty that i could recover any movement? My neurlogist told me that if within 6month of the stroke if I didnt have any movement that my hand will stay paralyzed?

Avatar m tn I'm 62 and was physically fit before my May19 2009 stroke. Left arm and side weak.Veery limited control in shoulder. can anyone suggest good exercises to reconnect arn to brain?
Avatar n tn But i did get a stroke .I believe I had a clot somwhere in my leg which had travelled to my brain and had finally come and settled in my left throat. That is why i had a stroke in my entire right side.Right from my right side chin to all my movement in th right side was paralised. I had even lost my speech. But it was my determination and and my constant exercises that helped me get bk to normalwithin 1 year.
Avatar m tn It has been two weeks since she suffered a left side thalamic hemmorhagic stroke on 8/17/09 that left her right side paralyzed and her speech jibberishy. She was in the ICU for thee days, never lost conscious but was sedated for the air tube, breathing fine on her own when they took the tube out three days later, swallowing fine and eating solids 7 days later, stood up with therapist assistance 4 days later.
Avatar m tn If you are right-handed the left half of the brain is primary. If left-handed the right side is primary. When one has a stroke and one half of the body loses tone, it is the opposite side where the stroke is. Right face paralysis means left brain involvement. If the damage is to one half the likelihood is that the other half can, with a lot of work, completely regain lost physical abilities, such as handwriting, or language. Memories, on the other hand,will probably be lost completely.
Avatar m tn My 59 yrs Mom had stroke due to hypertension. CT Scan says "Large left thalamic hematoma extending to ganglio capsular region & corona radiata along with intraventricular extension". Doctors drained lot of blood/fluid and finally they put a stunt. Initially she showed some response on her left side but while she was still in the hospital she had a seizure and then she completely lost all responses.
Avatar n tn 5 months later he is in a nursing home, unable to sit up and unable to move his left limbs. What causes a stroke patient to not be able to sit up on their own? Is it a loss of muscle from laying down for so long or is it related to a chemical imbalance? T-Pa was used, angioplasty was done and neither helped. A hemi-craniectomy was performed three days later. The doctors were more concerned with the swelling of the brain.
Avatar f tn She is 55 and 3weeks ago she had a bleed in the brain and a stroke affecting the left side of her body. She has memory problems too. The main worry is her constant headache and she is not eating of drinking much. Since being discharged from hospital 4 days ago she has spent most of the time in bed.her left sided weakness has improved greatly but she looks awful. Can anyone tell me weather this is normal recovery.
Avatar m tn My 60 year old mother is recovering from her 3rd stroke . This current stroke was a massive one & she can not Talk or Walk or respond to commands... Her right side is paralyzed. All she can do at the moment is open her eyes and look to the Left and stare. The Doctors told me that this is how she might be for the rest of her life. Im scared to death because she is so young and i cant picture my life without her in it .
Avatar m tn the doctors said the brain scan showed a previous stroke years ago that he fully recovered from. since the heart surgery he has made progress like being able to slowly communicate through head shakes and saying no(very very simply things though) I need to know what can help speed up the metal aspects of recovery. im still not sure to what extent his brain might be affected. what exercises can i do with him to help his memory/motor skills come back?
Avatar n tn The physical functions return to normal once the brain edema subsides and hematoma dissolves, but sometimes if the stroke is severe it may take longer.
Avatar n tn My Grandmother had a major ischemic stroke 3 months ago. This first stroke was then followed by a major bleed in her basal artery. Immediately following these strokes she was in a semi coma for 2-3 days, with no responses at all. Some improvement was then seen in her; such as a response to us and questions we ask her, an new ability to move her non-stroked side and better hand coordination (she can move her right side) and she open and see out of one eye (her left eye).
Avatar f tn His paralysis is on his right side so I just thought the damage from the stroke was on his left side of brain.. I have no idea.. can anyone explain the left and right side thingy... and if there is right side paralysis then what side of brain is efected and what other functions are on that side of the brain?

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 The reason for your neglect is that your stroke damaged the side of the brain that gives you notice of the left side of your body. As your undergoing rehab, you should begin to adapt to this situation. There are no real exercises you can go, but the rehab personal are usual very familiar with these things and can direct your adaptation.
