Avatar n tn org/diseases-conditions/stroke/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20350119. It does have some repair techniques but they are mostly surgical. Your dad is in that critical time period. If he was on blood thinners, they would potentially transfuse him to remove the blood thinner from his body so he can clot properly. I'm not sure where any of this is at in terms of your dad and if the emergency period is over. What are the doctors saying in terms of prognosis?

Avatar n tn My father also had a "pons" brain stem stroke on 29th Sept 2012. He had a tracheostomy for 1 month. Now a PEG feeding tube is inserted in his stomach for giving him liquid diet.

Avatar n tn I looked it up and it seems that this means I could have had some sort of stroke. Does anyone know anything about this and the prognosis and treatment since I cannot get in to see a neurologist for a month and a half.
Avatar m tn Treatment should be aimed at trying to prevent a full-blown stroke from happening in the future. A neurologist should assist you with this treatment. Some patients, on the prescription of a doctor, take Plavix (or its generic form), some take aspirin (doctor needs to advise you as to what you should do). Blood pressure should be kept in normal range so if you have high blood pressure, the doctor will likely want to prescribe medicine to get that down to normal.
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 f tn The types and degree of disability that follows a stroke depends on which area of the brain is damaged. Usually the disabilities are paralysis or problems controlling movement, sensory disturbance including using or understanding language, thinking and memory issues, etc. The effects of numbness tongue like speech difficulties and swallowing difficulties have to be tackled with and modifications made to suit.

1678022 tn?1305114267 s words squash your hope, your belief your faith!!!! My father 62 years old suffered a left brain stroke as well during a 7 1/2 hour surgery so they were unsure how long the stroke lasted or when it was. Could have been during surgery or the 12 hours after surgery when he was not awake. They told us he may never respond as well. It started with the slightest hand squeeze (on the left side) the right side did not move for a while.
5621588 tn?1371086206 Hi, my name is Adam and I recently had a brain stem stroke. (About 2 weeks ago) I lost my ability to eat and my right side is fairly numb. I'm 35 years old from upstate NY. I know now after reading up on brain stem strokes that I am lucky to even be alive. I also suffer from pretty sever anxiety and panic attacks, which doesn't go very well with being a stroke survivor, as the symptoms of my panic attacks often mimic stroke symptoms.
598230 tn?1219763221 Three hours of waiting may have made a difference since prolonged exposure to increased pressure in the brain can really have lasting injury to the brain tissues. However, overall prognosis will also depend on the type and location of the stroke itself, and pontine hemorrhages are really one of the worst kind. I pray that future strokes can be prevented, and this can be done by controlling the elements such as high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and stress levels. Regards.
Avatar n tn My father's stroke in December left him with not being able to read, speak, sit for long and he cannot walk (supposedly paralyzed right side body but is able to wiggle some hand and foot). He had to have a tracheaostomy. I realize that the prognosis can be anywhere from little recovery to limitless recovery, but what I am hoping for is for some real testimonials about anyone who had recovery with similar problems.
Avatar n tn Memory loss and impaired thinking and illogical thought process can occur after stroke. It all depends on the part of brain involved in stroke. Since her left side of the body was involved it indicates the involvement of right side of the brain. The right hemisphere controls thought and perception and memory. This is also termed as vascular dementia. Please consult her doctor about as she may need physical and occupational therapy.
