Avatar f tn I had a right sphenoid wing meningioma that was partially removed and during the surgery I suffered a mild stroke that slightly weakened my left side. 2 months after my surgery I started experiencing a tingling sensation in my right leg and mild aching of my right arm and the back of my right hand. Is this something common after brain surgery?
Avatar n tn My husband had a stroke during surgery (dizzy since the surgery), and it is my understanding 15% of patients do suffer a mild stroke during surgery. His heart doctor doesn't seem to recognize this, but a MRI showed a mild stroke and he wasn't dizzy before the surgery, so we are sure that it occurred during surgery.

1012964 tn?1251819426 Hi, One of the major complications of a heart surgery is stroke. You might have suffered a mild stroke while undergoing surgery or soon after and hence the symptoms of memory loss and confusion. The symptoms will get better with a proper management plan that involves medication, exercises, good nutrition and psychotherapy. Please consult a neurologist for the complete neurological examination and management. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn My mother-in-law had her gallbladder removed about 1 month ago. She is experiencing severe migraines, along with severe nausea, and the left side of her face has become numb, and droopy. The first thing we thought was a mild stroke, she was admitted into the hospital, after MRI'S, Cat-scans, countless bloodwork, and ultrasounds, stroke was ruled out. Now, her dx is vascular migraines.

Avatar n tn There are a few avenues for exploration with your Mother. Firstly did she start any new medication directly after surgery? if so, have a look at the side effects for that medication. Secondly, traumatic surgery such as a bypass can really affect people in different ways. Some have been noticed to be depressed, some simply withdraw into themselves and become quiet, and others present no changes at all. The effects of surgery are different for everyone.
Avatar m tn I also have factor five leiden, MTHFR, and lipoprotein A, as well as a PFO/ASD. I had a mild stroke. I would like to have the hole closed, but cannot do either the device procedure or open heart surgery due to the combination of clotting/bleeding disorders. I am wondering if anticoagulation is needed after radio frequency closure. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/669911'>PFO - Hole in the Heart</a>.
Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
Avatar n tn The doc at ICU said he should be awake, they took him for a scan to see if he had a stroke but there was no sign of a stroke. When they put the medicine that keeps him asleep down, he moves his leg, arms, mouth and opens his eye lids without moving his pupils and doesn't respond to anything i say. the nurse tried shaking him and speaking very loudly but there was no reaction besides opening his eye lids. What is the problem? What can we do besides wait and approx.

Avatar m tn my 59-yr-old husband had four mild TIA's over a two year period. it was discovered his carotid artery was blocked and he had successful surgery for that. Now it's a year later and he has shakiness, balance problems, confusion and is extremely fatigued after any physical exertion. Our family doctor referred him to a neurology center specializing in involuntary movement, they are treating him for Parkinson's but to me he just doesn't fit that profile.
