Mild stroke rehab

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke rehab


Avatar m tn My 83 year old mother-in-law had a mild stroke last Sunday (3/13/16). It was discovered her left cardioid artery is 70% blocked and the right side, which is the side of the stroke is 50% blocked. The doctors are recommending surgery on the right side first, since that is the side of the stroke. She was moved to acute rehab first to get stronger and to give a diagnosed UTI time to clear up. Is there a time frame for the most success for both cardioid surgeries.
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.
1041487 tn?1256327719 Why is it that when a person has a severe stroke, they receive little to no physical or speech therapy. Don't these people need therapy more than a person who suffered a mild to moderate stroke? I find this to be a major bias in the healthcare community.
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 f tn it's been a year since my mom had a stroke, she is in a rehab, but they aren't doing any rehab because they first said she was not responsive enough because she is not able to speak because her tongue is still swollen, she is still unable to speak but she do understand, I had her to write her name, she combs her hair, she will blink once for yes and twice for no, when I question the rehab staff about rehab now they tell me she had exhausted all of her rehab, I don't understand how th
Avatar f tn Yes. Don't give up. I started rehab on a 99 year old stroke patient who was immobilized, incontinent and partially paralyzed. The doctors had given up on her and expected her to die within five days. I began extensive rehab (I called it the optimal experience day), fired her doctors, four nurses and a total of 37 aides. At age 102 I had her walking and talking. No longer incontinent. She told me "I was never happier in my life". She is now almost 110 years old.
1213000 tn?1280463161 5 days after this angiogram, I went to cardio rehab and worked out pretty good on the treadmill. That night I had a mild stroke affecting the left arm and leg. Some weaknes and loss of dexterity in both but I am told it is mild, although frustrating. they did not find the cause. I wonder what it was and if it could be connected to the angiogram knocking something loose then, when I exercied, maybe it came all the way lose and went to the brain? any thoughts?
Avatar n tn This is a hospital that does not have a stroke center and no real specialty stroke treatment/rehab. Rehab people are now very pessimistic regarding his recovery, but he had been making progress before. We are concerned that they let him get dehydrated in the Rehab center and this has also caused some kidney issues as of today. Has anyone had any experience with this type situation? Did clots resolve on their own?
Avatar n tn My father who is now 79 had a stroke in 2007 - hematoma and he lost his speech and the right side of his body was paralyzed. However, he regained his speech and body movements after 6 weeks of therapy. But his right arm is still paralyzed. I was wondering what kind of treatment or therapy would help his right arm. He has completely regained all that he lost with the stroke except his right arm. Can you please let me know if there are new type of treatment for his right arm.
Avatar m tn My wife of 40 years suffered a stroke August 7th. She just started to be able to speak on Sept 9. The doctor said the swelling in the brain did NOT stop until around August 28th and said that when the swelling ended then recovery would begin. Is that correct? She is paralyzed on the LEFT side with sensation now in the left leg; none on the left arm. She has left-side neglect but that seems to have lessened slightly.
Avatar m tn For each person suffering this type of stroke, the situation can be unique and is on a spectrum from mild to severe. I would speak to his neurologist about this. Is his blood pressure well controlled?
Avatar m tn It was a hemorhaggic stroke. The Stroke is on the terminal of the brain. He is still unconcious until now. He is in the ICU. He does not respond to pain. What should we do. We have been praying and hoping that he will wake up.
500374 tn?1210071413 I didn't have a brainstem stroke, but I did have a stroke and I have the same cognitive issues that you have. What I do is write a lot of lists - but darn where is that list? Also, I have a PSP and I play a game called Hot Brain to exercise my brain. I'm not good but I'm trying.

Avatar f tn My husband just had a mild stroke 4 days ago. He is sleeping a lot. Should I keep waking him up or does his body need the sleep time to heal??
Avatar m tn A stroke on the vision part of her brain and a brain stem stroke after they sent us home the second time. We were at rehab one week and still two weeks away from our 8/12th appt when she had another brain stem stroke. 64 years young and three strokes in less than a month. Needless to say they now have her on eliquis,plavix,antipltelets and aspirin. It is a little to late for us. They should have kept her in hospital until the right drugs were given.
Avatar f tn what happens with significant MVR some blood fails to pumped into circulation with each stroke. To maintain adequate blood flow with a decrease in stroke volume is to increase the heart rate. The math for cardiac output is stroke volume times heart rate for one minute. Frankly, I don't believe you have significant MVR because you should also have the symptoms of shortness of breath with exertion and muscle fatigue.
Avatar n tn The fact that the hematoma is regressing is a good sign but how long is hard to tell. Paralysis of one side of the body is one of the features of stroke. The medical management includes medications to dissolve the clot, to prevent further clot formation and to keep the risk factors like High BP, and high cholesterol under control. Rehab therapy helps in recovery from loss of physical function. Please make sure that the rehab therapy is under a trained instructor.
11715667 tn?1420590616 The problem is the patient has done many rehab during the past 7 years, he did gained improvements from rehab at early stage, and could walk independently. However he couldn't use his right hand and walk difficultly. He decided to receive stem cell treatment to gain further results. I will post this patient's detial info later.
Avatar f tn My brother is 46 years old and had a stroke on 9-19-13 on left side of brain.My whole family is devastated.He left work early because he didn't feel right and had vision problems.His stroke happened in the waiting room of the ER in which they started the t-PA drip right away to dissolve the blood clot.From there he was transported to another hospital with a neuro dept.At that hospital we were told that he would never be the same,etc.
Avatar f tn I had the same kind of stroke over a year ago and was in rehab for 5 weeks before I went home which is a normal amount of time I think. I have had out-patient rehab since then. The road to recovery is long and hard and he will need a lot of understanding and encouragement. You don't say how old your daughter is but things will be different when he comes home and I think you should tell her the truth in simple terms. Letting her visit him now might be a good idea.
Avatar f tn After going home from the inpatient rehab center, is it necessary to follow up with visiting the the outpatient rehab center regularly or just continue at home the rehab exercise which be taught at rehab center?
Avatar f tn After the stroke he was a lot better. My family started calling the stroke a miracle because he recovered pretty fast, got a lot nicer, and his alcohol consumption was extremely low. I know that stroke victims should never drink alcohol because it raises the risk of another stroke, but one of his doctors said he could have a little bit of beer every now and then.
Avatar m tn The younger the better for recovery but also depending on severity of damage by the stroke can delay the healing process. He will be very tired following a stroke and doing rehab, but stimulating him to relearn what he lost will be the best you can do for him so he can have a chance at a recovery.
Avatar n tn Acute care for rehab centers normally require a minimum of three hours rehab 5-6 days a week. When my dad was tested, he did not consistently respond to commands. I am positive that he could hear, and he responded some days much better than other days. Keep telling your father that you are working on getting him to a higher level of care. Explain to him on a daily basis that you have to keep working on small steps of progress starting with consistent actions.
