Avatar n tn However, when she woke up on Monday and had no use of it, and her leg started feeling very heavy she went to the hospital. They said she had a mild stroke. She had no other symptoms and the recovery was amazing. They were all amazed. By Monday night she could lift her arm over her head, although it still felt very heavy and her fingers wouldn't do exactly what she wanted them to do. Her leg was completely better. It felt as though nothing had ever happened.
Avatar f tn My grandfather had a mild stroke this previous Monday. Is there any way to get the nurses to stop taking daily blood samples from him? I know they need to monitor the substance levels in his bloodstream daily, but this is actually counterproductive as it is hindering his recovery. It is also apparent that all of these tests/procedures are being carried out by the hospital in order to rack up a large insurance bill, which is complete bull****.

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.

Avatar n tn He had a mild stroke last June and while hospitalized, had a major stroke two days later. The last stroke a few days ago has affected his left side. He has some motor skills, but is very weak and his speak is worse than after his last major stroke. My question is what are the chances of recovery after three strokes in less than two years? The doctors have started him on coumadin today.
Avatar f tn My symptoms have been mild overall. There was a little droop of my mouth, and since then I have experienced a mild lisp --a gets a little harder to speak when I am tired. I am experiencing a mild sense of lack of motivation..and perhaps a little depression..and tiredness.. Overall I think I am doing quite well for experiencing a stroke. I hope to recover completely.. Does anyone have advice for rehabilitation? Exercises for speech..and ways to improve mood?
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 f tn My dad has recently (within the last week) had a mild stroke. He is only 48 and reasonably healthy so it came has a huge shock. The stroke was a clot to the left side of his brain. His memory has not been affected and his doctors are very impressed with the progress of his recovery in the short time since the stroke. They believe after all of his rehabilitation he should be back to 100% independance. The outlook is good in that respect even though at the moment its all still very saddening.

Avatar n tn The cause of the stroke(s) was never determined. During the first two years of my recovery, I had three TEEs. While it was determined I had no PFO, the first TEE showed mild mitral valve regurgitation. The second TEE (6 months later) showed an increased mitral valve regurgitation. One year following the second TEE, a third TEE was completed after being evaluated for post-stroke headaches. The impression from the third TEE showed an atrial septal aneurysm "avg - 1.
Avatar n tn Very sorry to hear about your stroke. I applaud your courage and motivation in what sounds like a tough recovery period. To accurately comment on prognosis or outcome of your stroke, I would have to examine you personally and see your imaging studies to know exactly what was damaged and how far you've come. To be honest, I'm not sure that anyone can tell you whether or not you will ever reach your high baseline functioning status.
Avatar f tn It is called vascular dementia. It may also be delirium in medical terms. Stroke was ischmec. No other damage was done. Very mild stroke.

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 m tn Helping a person recover from stroke is collectively termed as stroke rehabilitation. For the motor skills physiotherapy is needed. Techniques such as exercise, manipulation, massage, skills training and electrical treatment are used. Consult a neuro physiotherapist and follow the instructions at home. To improve memory functions, you could try a lot of ‘brain teasers’.
