Mild stroke after surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke after surgery


Avatar f tn But just in case, I was diagnosed (and still have) with mild hyperpara. It seems the criteria for surgery for mild hyperpara have to do primarily with bone density concerns and kidney stones. If these are present, then the docs seem more inclined to act. A bone scan and any problems related to kidney/bladder infections or stones may prompt the next step, which is to look for a possible adenoma or enlarged gland.
Avatar n tn She also had four CT scans done on her head after the stroke, up to about 5 months later which did not show anything that could explain her complaints. She completed a course of physical therapy which did not alleviate the symptoms. She is getting desperate. She is using a hearing aid and wears glasses. Is there any exercise, test or medication that you could suggest? She says that she would gladly undergo an operation if that was needed.
Avatar m tn and I have come to realize that every stroke is so different. For example, my father drooled after the first stroke, and after the third stroke, it stopped. He was much like Miller78's father, except mine could not read or write. He had the same impulse control issues, ran away from home, and was very fit and strong when we brought him home after the first stroke. Even with 24-hour in-home care, we could not keep him contained, and he was easily frustrated.
Avatar m tn The MRI does not mention MS (thankfully!), but does say I have a mild tonsillar ectopia of 3mm to 4mm. Yesterday I had mild symptoms again. This time it was severe fatigue in my left arm. It did occur after using a small weedeater for 10 minutes, but I'm not that out of shape! The fatigue eventually manifested itself as a severe tremor where my left arm shook uncontrollably. I also had some facial discomfort and some mild discomfort in the very back of my head (off and on).
Avatar n tn It was about 8 weeks after the stroke that he could walk and that was with a walker. My husbands stroke was in July 2007 and today he walks without assistance except if we're going to the mall where he has to walk a long distance. He'll get tired easily on long walks. He has made a miraculous recovery considering the type of bleed he had. My husbands left side was partially paralyzed but now he moves it just fine, although it's not as strong as before.
Avatar n tn The neurologist who sent me for the test then told me that he suspected a PFO because the stroke was in the cerebellum. He said that the severe vomiting after my surgery might have widened the hole in the heart I was born with. A Doppler test revealed bubbles in the circulation of the heart, which usually means a hole. I had a PFO closure (where the cardiologist puts a device into the heart to close the hole).
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 f tn 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. I am curious after reading alot of posts about similar problems after gallbladder surgery, if anyone has has similar problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with a PFO in April 1998, after suffering a stroke. I was 40 at the time. Diagnosis was made on the results of a TEE,after spending 5 days in the hospital and exhausting many tests to determine the cause.I was basically given the option of the percutaneous procedure that you are considering or Coumadin therapy probably for the rest of my life. I decided on the drug therapy because at the time the other procedures were considered experimental.
Avatar f tn Im sorry for not getting back to all of you I had a bad week. I was referred to a new Dr as mine was retiring and this Dr doesnt believe in Narcotics so I was taken off the vicodin--cold turkey. this Dr would not even give me enough to taper off. The only thing that works for the pain but what was worse was the withdrawls for 3 days. Needless to say I am seeing a new Dr this week.
Avatar n tn They did a MRI on his brain which showed he had a mild stroke, which effects the part of his brain that controls balance. He has not had his follow-up appt. with the 2nd neurologist, but he said it probably occured during surgery. Why wouldn't the heart specialist suspect a stroke? What kind of therapy, if any may help him? Or medications? He also has experienced chest pain, since July. What kind of test would help in finding out where the pain is coming from?
Avatar n tn My husband and his uncle both had bypass surgery, and afterwards had the dizzyness. They both had mild strokes during their surgery (10 to 15% have strokes during surgery), that affected the part of the brain that controls their balance. My husbands was discovered after a MRI was preformed. My husband saw a neurologist for this evaluation.
Avatar n tn stroke after surgery might be not restarting an aspirin a day if you were on it before surgery. Once a stroke has occurred, the immediate damage, for the most part, is done. The key issue at that point and in your case is to prevent further more debilitating strokes from occurring. : You should see your primary care physician regarding the recent stroke for : a complete workup and management of risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking, for starters.
Avatar n tn I have no memory of the first 5-6 days after surgery and seem to be having trouble remembering events from much earlier in life. ( decades rather than years). Typically, a friend will say 'remember when......., and even after prompting I will not be able to recall the event. I don't know if I am forgeting more things as time goes by or am just being exposed to more things I have forgotten.
Avatar m tn I see it is a box of shredded leaves which people burn and inhale to acheive a mild intoxication. I still have trouble holding steady sleep patterns as well as eating habits. Most persistent and unchanging are lingering hallucinations. Objects wave, grow and shrink, vibrate. Tracers follow moving objects and and things begin to look fake, or 2-D, while shifting in color. The good news is i have not lost any motor control.
Avatar n tn I am a 38year old male, with recently diagnosed mild hypertension (typically 140/90). I am not particularly overweight (190lbs, 6'0"). I do not smoke, drink reasonably moderately (normally two days a week alcohol free, 2-3 standard drinks other days), and walk/run 3.75miles 3-4 days per week. My work is white-collar, office bound and prone to regular senior management stress levels.
Avatar m tn I have but, I have to wait.. until next friday. I had another mild attack after I got home and had to lie down for a couple hours before feeling well enough to get up.. Then all day today I felt lethargic and the tingling and slight pressure to the left of my face was present for most of the day... A few months back I injured my back at work, and I have had lingering pain as well as tingling and numbness in my legs that has persisted.. gets worse during work hours...
Avatar n tn I am a 38 year old female who suffered a mild stroke 3 weeks ago. I was approx 12 weeks pregnant at the time. I have not used birth control pills for almost 10 years. The doctors say it was a blod clot in the thalmus (sp?) region. My deficits are a blind spot in the left side of both eyes and a numb left arm. The doctors cannot tell me what brought on the stroke, although they say the pregnancy may have caused a hypercoaguble state.
Avatar n tn The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down. She is currently in a rehab hospital (March 18) with paralysis on the right side (arm and leg) and has aphasyia - she understands us but has a hard time getting her words out (she does put small phases together at times).
559621 tn?1215888786 Im wondering if someone out there can tell me from your experience how you felt after your stroke emotionally. To fast forward 2 nights ago I had took him to the ER he had some mild chest pain that probably lasted 15 minutes and disappered they did more tests and found that something is going on in his lower part of his heart which he will be checked out by a cardiologist. And we will know more.
Avatar m tn Hi, my mum had a stroke 5 months ago and went on to have mild epilepsy and then a clot in her right leg at the top, she was not able to do much physio in hospital due to her keep fitting ,hence the probable cause of the clot, so has not got any movement or sense of touch down her right side from her neck downwards. She is now home and uses a hoist to get her in and out of a chair.
Avatar n tn Dear Ralph, The stroke you had is probably unrelated to the back surgery you had recently. The only thing that may have contributed to an increased risk of stroke after surgery might be not restarting an aspirin a day if you were on it before surgery. Once a stroke has occurred, the immediate damage, for the most part, is done. The key issue at that point and in your case is to prevent further more debilitating strokes from occurring.

Avatar n tn I work in Computer IT/IA security and I truly drop sync after one of these events. I'm a 43 male slightly near sighted and wear mild prescription glasses. This doesn't seem to be an eye issue. I like coffee, normal diet. It seems that to much sun or dihidration can trigger an event. they have decreased in the last year but sometimes come in two's or three's. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Both of these doctors sent me to a cardia surgeon who said he wouldn't do surgey unless I had a stroke first. Felt surgery was too high risk, MRI didn't show infaract, but he said emboli was probaly crossing through the hole in my heart.Transcathter not done in Hawaii yet. I could come to Cleveland. Cardiologist there on forum said transcathter would be a option, and I should ahve the hole closed. I AM SO CONFUSED, I DON't KNOW WHAT TO THINK.
Avatar f tn My question is, he now wants to enroll in an inpatient rehab to address his issues is this possible so soon after surgery? The only problems he is experiencing are headaches and mild fatigue. I am having difficulty with the centers we have contacted, although no one has outright turned him down, they just beat around the bush. His follow-up appt with his neuro surgeon is in 3 weeks.
764069 tn?1267389390 The latter one could be the most possible reason as he turned incoherent after surgery as this could be due to stroke. I would suggest that you get a CT brain, coagulation profile and colonoscopy done to assess the condition. The other reason for incoherence after TURP is imbalance in sodium concentration in the body. Discuss with your doctor regarding all these possibilities and follow his advise. Best.
1315632 tn?1274037416 Hello, I just red some of the statements posted on this site on bypass surgery and complications after the surgery. My mom is 76 years old and is scheduled to have triple bypass surgery this week. She lives in Poland. After reading all those statements about side effects and complications people have after bypass surgery I got really scared. I am questioning myself, would be better for her to not have the surgery and live with the condition she has or have the surgery and hope for the best?
