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 A stroke can affect so many people in so many different ways. If his stroke is a mild one then he will hopefully recover quickly and regain most of his normal functions. If the stroke was severe then you may have a long road of recovery in front of you. I totally understand your anxiety. I went through it myself too. At least, you are not alone. Right now, my mother is staying in a stroke ward with other stroke victims. Fortunately, my family and I have been able to talk to other families.
Avatar n tn Re Recovery Time, Thank you for posting this. My husband had a "mild" stroke on Dec 18, and we are still trying to figure out how to process all the changes that have occurred in our lives. We're not even sure what "mild" means for he had a stroke that left his entire left side affected (with little to no sensation), but his speech, mobility and brain functions seem relatively unimpaired.
Avatar m tn My father, at the age of 65, went from COMPLETLY bordering at catatonic... he had a stroke 5/8...had complete loss of expressive language, and mild loss of receptive language...his major problem was in his mouth/tonge and throat...he was unable to swallow, talk clearly etc...but he was making improvments everyday...talking more, begining to try and eat etc... then 5 days ago (5/21) he had another stroke...this one was a "mini stroke.
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 There are several references of stroke recovery ad one full chapter on stroke recovery. I have a 4 year daughter that has suffered a stroke and has left hemiparesis and epilepsy. She also has mild dysphagia. I have a exp working with stroke and TBI pts and have had training in a number of therapies. IMO, the absoulte best and most effective treatment out there for stroke pts is constraint induced movement therapy. I have been doing this with my daughter and she is making tremendous strides.

Avatar n tn As far as I 'm concerned, I'm afraid that modern medicine can do little in stroke recovery, so I suggest you can take some alternative medicine. Meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis, reflexology, herbalmedicine, and so on are all alternative medicine, and I think there must be one can help you. My friend's mother caught stroke and we are looking for any treatment to help her. I think Traditional Chinese Medicine should be my best choice.
Avatar n tn Everyone please remember, they can hear you and need to be kept informed with what is going on not just with their recovery, but also family issues, the weather, success stories about stroke recovery etc. Strokes cause extreme depression so it's good to constantly reinforce that they are not fighting alone and that you are striving to help them improve. We have combined an arsenal to fight for my father's recovery. Prayer, faith, hope, love, energy healing, research etc.

Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I had a mild stroke that did not affect any of my gross motor skills. I lost some functionality in my left hand, but now apparently have full use of the hand, but numbness at the end of 1 finger. 90% of the functionality of the muscles on the left side of my face has been restored. I speak very clearly and can modulate my tone effectively as long as I am not tire. Excellent recovery except for dealing with fatigue.
Avatar n tn My husband has made a miraculous recovery. He also has problems with his left side since his stroke was on the right side of the brain in the occipital lobe. He was in ICU for three weeks, neurology for three weeks and rehab for three weeks. His deficits are diplopia (double vision), mild left side weakness and minor short term memory.
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.
500374 tn?1210075013 As the brain absorbs the blood caused by the burst vessel, your mom will come back to herself. My husbands stroke was 10 months ago. One of his deficits was mild loss of short term memory. It comes and goes. Some times he would get confused about where he was at but all that is fine now. Just do memory games with your mom, buy memory game puzzles, do things that stimulate the brain. Get them brain cells connected again! Good luck to you and I hope your mom a speedy recovery!
Avatar f tn I told him how those I love were effected so much worse than he and I questioned if it may have been a mild stroke. He became defensive. He repeated what he had been saying about how his "left lower lobe was now 1/2 dead - like a gun shot". How his "upper lobe and lemming over the spinal tract was also effected". He then told me that the symptoms of my loved applied to him and that he was completely paralyzed one the left side and that he was still unable to swallow or .
Avatar n tn My husband, almost 60, was diagnosed 15+ years ago with RP, then 5 years ago with Glaucoma. Recently, he experienced a mild stroke, will virtually no loss of motor skills, speech or comprehension. But I noticed right away that his vision had changed substantially. Unfortunately, the medical community does not seem prepared to address the vision loss in any way at all. In fact, they seem to simply shrug it off -- he was already blind before the stroke, so that didn't cause it. Well DUH...
Avatar n tn The ENT Dr couldn't see any sign of a ear infection but the MRI scan did show the stroke in the Cerebellum so they sent me immediately back to the ER where I was admitted for the stroke. Unfortunately by that point no one could do anything to help with the actual stroke but I did get on a recovery plan and I'm doing pretty good so far.
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 my doctor is korean and i have a hard time understanding her. i'll give you the summary, normal left ventricular size, mild global LV systolic dysfunction. LV ejection fraction is 51 to 54%. RV size and function are normal. Valvular function is normal. Mild Aortic Root dilatation, no evidence of Coarctation of Aorta. Is this tpyical of someone my age? Other than this I've never had any health problems. I don't smoke but i do drink about 6 to 12 beers a week.
Avatar n tn My mother, a healthy 61-year old, was admitted to ER after a mild stroke at her water aerobics class. Her condition deteriorated quickly in the ER as the stroke was hemmhoragic. It took hours to flush the Coumadin she had been taking for a thrombosis 2 years earlier.
Avatar n tn new dry basal ganglia stroke in a very healthy 48 year old male. He has minimal symptoms, eg. facial droop with slight slurred speech, some slight difficulty writing and some slight difficulty finding the appropriate word at times. He complains of a foggy head - not thinking as clearly as before. A lot of fatigue but that has gotten much better with time. It has been 5 days since the onset. What are the chances of these symptoms resolving over time?
345982 tn?1208538808 For a person who hasn't experienced any form of stroke, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol greatly increases the risk of stroke. However, for those who already experienced a stroke, like in your case, even mild to moderate alcohol consumption might be putting you at risk for another stroke. Remember that drinking alcohol doesn't directly lead to a stroke.
Avatar n tn She has no trouble emptying bladder and does have quite a bit of urine when she goes to bathroom. There is mild incontinence. She is home and independent with good recovery from the stroke. She lives alone. Prior to stroke she was on estrogen for several decades. She is 85 years old. Is this from lingering neurological complications? Will this improve with time? Should she have a urinalysis on a regular basis when no pain is involved? THANK YOU!
Avatar f tn It would be great if you could tell us anything regarding his state and possible treatments or recovery time. Thank you for your time. ---- Here's a general overview of his condition from a report--- He is "non diabetic, non smoker, hypertensive, had a hemorrhagic stroke (pontine hemorrhage) on March 23, 2009. At that time he was unconscious. He was treated conservatively in ICU and HDU. Now patient is conscious, oriented but emotionally labile. His motor power is 2-3, tone increased.
