Mild stroke rehab

Common Questions and Answers about Mild stroke rehab


Avatar n tn After 1 week in a hospital, 2 weeks as in-patient in an high intensity stroke rehab hospital followed by 8 weeks of out-patient therapy I am doing great physically. Left arm is 99% back - only minor tingle in finger tips when arm is very tired. Left leg is very good, balance is 95%, stamina needs a little more work, walk 1/3 of a mile twice a day. Physically I am very pleased with progress todate and it keeps improving. I do 1 hour of therapy exercises at home each day.

Avatar n tn My Mother had a similar stroke. She is 56 days after surgery. She has opened her left eye and has moved her right hand a bit. Her other limbs seem to move only slightly. We haven't been able to even get the doctor to try any rehabiltation for her. He says her prognosis is poor. I continue to do range of motion on her limbs as much as I can. The doctor says it will help with contracted limbs and with muscle tone.
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 My 59 year old mom had a massive stroke ( right CVA) 7 weeks ago Sunday morning. She lost her left side, but her can talk and communicate well. She has neglect and mild trouble with short term memmory. She was in an in hospital rehab and insisted she go home after 4 weeks. She is able to move her leg and can even walk with an hemiwalker. Her arm started some movement after about 3 weeks into rehab, but she wouldn't stay.

Avatar n tn where is the BEST rehab for stoke patients? We are at one in Dallas. We have been here two weeks and I have some real concerns that they are not doing all we could for my dear friend who is 45. Please give us some names of really top notch rehab centers.
Avatar n tn My dad had a large stroke 2 weeks ago, and he has been in rehab for 1 week. The stroke is terrible enough to endure, he had the stroke 1 hour after his 2nd dialysis treatment. My mother is getting sick worrying about his progress, because the case worker told her if he does not make progress they will not keep him in rehab. My dad has medicare and supplemental insurance, is there a minimum or maximum time they will allow him to get rehab?
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.
407531 tn?1202028814 Last May I had a femoral and coronary angiogram together and a very large bruising on the insertion site, (from my knee to my hip). Two weeks later I had a mild stroke. I know I am diabetic (type 2) and had been for 16 years and the angiogram was done because I had a foot ulcer that wasn't healing. But I am trying to work out if the angiogram could have caused the stroke. I can now only walk with crutches after rehab because my weakness is in my left hip and shoulder.
Avatar n tn i suffered a stroke at age 28 i have left sided weakness but i can walk.
Avatar n tn I'm 53, a type-1 diabetic. I recently suffered a mild stroke and am back at home, continuing rehab. Part of my problem is managing my supine (lying and sitting) hypertension and orthostatic hypotension. Swings can be exteme, up to 40-50 points. I take lisinopril (currently on hold due to high potassium levels), clonidine and labatelol, along with lasix, among other meds.
Avatar n tn Had a mild stroke(left arm & leg) on Aug 3 at a copper mine in UT, at 7K feet. Just after noticing foot and arm effects spotted EMT personnel who checked vitals and call ambulance. Was in ER within 1 hour of first sympton. After 2 CAT scans (w and w/o dye), sonogram of carodid arteries, leg and arms, eckogram of heart, EKG and EMG no cause or effect was found. Was given one 325mg asprin within 15 min of arrival, Heprin IV for 2 days and then cumindinfor 6 days.
Avatar f tn I understand each stroke and stroke patient is different, but what could we expect in relation to time of recovery and how much recovery should we realistically expect? Any advice or experiences shared would be appreciated.
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?
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.
2175879 tn?1338355028 My MRI results came in. This time my neurologist actually found proof that I had a stroke. First they thought it was a TIA, then an ear ache, and then I kinda forced the issue, they did another MRI and actually found a small "disruption" on my right side of my brain. I can't tell you how relieved that makes me.
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 They said no to faking and just mild reactive depression. So, told I had mild stroke and would recover completely. am now on daily aspirin, but some doctors say no it wasn't a stroke perhaps a big drop in BP due to the fact I was sick and BP dropped too low and cut off blood circulation to brain.
Avatar n tn i am seeking information about post stroke rehab facilities in southern california that will prepare stroke survivor for independent living. can you help?
Avatar n tn 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. He also had dysphagia and with speech therapy and exercise that improved to where he didn't have to do the head turns to swallow and he didn't have to use the thickeners any more. I think your mom may be being a little over-cautious, and with good reason. What did the doctors say?
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.
