Avatar n tn //www.mayoclinic.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 I suffered a brain stem stroke on October 5th, 2006. I had paralysis on my left side, dual vision, some troubling swallowing and my voice changed a little but I could still speak. From all the research, and talking with doctors I can only say that it seems that all strokes are different, depending upon the cause, where they are and how soon you can get treatment. At this time, or as of today I would say I'm about 98% back where I was before.
1346447 tn?1327866172 She could not stand. After treatment for stroke she now stands on the leg.She is 70 years old. She had left carotid artery completely blocked for long time. This was never noticed. Now in additio we observed that her short term memory is getting deterioted.In the past twenty years slowly it is observed that her blood supply to brain was getting reduced. This process was stabilised .But now we find that memory loss is occuring.At present she is practically all the time in the bed lying.
Avatar n tn my husband also had a stroke after his brain surgery. 2 of them he is not moving his left side but if you pinch him he withdraws will he ever regain his mobility. an if so how long does this process take? I think he is doing well considering the nature of the brain surgery.

176104 tn?1295208452 After six months of unsatisfactory relief from Baclofen therapy, the complications and consequences of the side-effects forced my hand to seek alternative paths. The alternatives were few [handful of other meds that had comparable, significant cognitive impact; some were impractically invasive [e.g. surgically implanted baclofen pump].

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. Can swallow only 2 spoons water on his own. Full paralysis is there except for head/neck movement. Does Vital Stim really work? Is it available in India? Please share your progress thus far with us. Would really help a lotttt.
Avatar m tn This breathing technique you can do yourself, and it will stimulate your brain cells, as extra oxygen goes into the left and right brain. Do this for 30 minutes, twice a day and let me know your progress after 30 days, or whenever you feel like writing.Keep some notes of your progress. Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Avatar m tn I am 56 year old male and I suffered a stroke ( brain infarct) 21 months ago affecting the left side of the body.I have recovered sufficiently to be able to move around on my own. However there is most of the time moderate to severe pain and heaviness on the left side which makes it very difficult and affects speech. My neulogical surgeon has pronounced me neurologically fit . It is like saying that the operation is successful but the patient is dead. I live in pune,india .
Avatar m tn my wife had a right side brain bleed stroke -doing fine with rehab-now 8 moths after stroke she is getting her fine touch feeling back in her left hand when tremors started - now she is back at square 1 cant walk with out foot shaking or arm shaking what can be done?
Avatar f tn The entire left side of his body became paralyzed. After stroke rehabiliation, and lots of after treatment, he has made some progress. 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.
Avatar n tn The only problem is that I never recovered from my blindness on the right side (I got my stroke on the left side of my brain). I still live in hope that I might recovery someday, as brain is such a powerful tool. Even if it's from my blind side, if there is a light straight to my blind side, I will see that, though I can't see anything else. I am asking you guys, is there any things I could try to recover from that ? Any exercises I could do, or medicines that could help ?
Avatar n tn Unfortunatley 2 years back i was undergone for the treatment of Hemorrhagic Stroke on the right side of my brain which made my left body paralysed. I've never experienced a head-ache or any kind of major illness before the stroke and i don't booze or smoke. Got recovered 90-95% over the days after the medication from neurologist (15-20 days) & psychotherapy ( 2 months ) . i'm still using Eptoin as part of my medication.
Avatar n tn 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.
500374 tn?1210075013 My mom had a hemorraghic stroke at her brain stem over a month ago. She is progressing great with physical rehab but still is very confused mentally. She has very limited short term memory. It is amazing she solved some hard math problems yesterday but goes offs with crazy stories about rabbits wanting her meds and telling me to have my dad (that has been deceased 8 yrs) to do things. But I feel she will get better than she is now because we see her getting more coherant.
Avatar n tn My Dad, age 70, just suffered an ischemic stroke on the left side of his brain. He was at the hospital within 2 hours of the stroke, but the medicine to dissolve the blood clot didn't seem to have much affect. Right after the stroke he had no movement on the right side of this body, could not speak, and was having trouble swallowing. We have seen very small improvements...he is mostly swallowing on his own, he has said the odd word (but not when he tries)....thats about it.
Avatar f tn I was curious if the standard, acute treatment for a hemorrhagic stroke included an emergency vent shunt. My sixty one year old father suffered a severe hemorrhagic stroke 10 months ago. He received a CT scan upon arrival at the emergency room where they determined he had a hemorrhagic stroke. At that point he was considered a 3 on the Glasgow coma scale.
Avatar n tn t send her back to the hospital because they had no treatment options left. Maybe at 90-95 but not beyond. This week yet another new to her nurse questioned why we weren't trying to do everything possible. She ordered labwork that all came back normal. We treat her hypertension and do some therapies. I just want her comfortable and allowed to die w dignity. Thank you for all the above posts. Confirmed for me that 5 trips to the hospital in the past year were probably enough!
Avatar m tn The CT scan showed that it was not brain stem but a massive right bleed which was putting pressure on the left side of her brain - so she would die at any time.
531662 tn?1239203696 I suffered a brain stem stroke the day after Mother's Day and went from the hospital directly to a rehab hospital. Against my therapists wishes, I came home. I felt my progress had slowed to a minimum and it no longer made sense to be away any longer. I am not able to take care of all my own needs but most daily things I can manage. I'm only 46 years old and had no risk factors. My biggest problem right now is the dizziness that they tell me will eventually go away.
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 .
