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?
1549643 tn?1495759353 My sister had a stroke, was taken to the hospital and given 2 doses of blood thinners, at which point she was able to start moving her limbs, so she was showing signs of improvement. They said she had a blood clot and she had to have the surgery. Made it sound like she would die without it. And i don't understand that when she was showing signs of improvement.

Avatar f tn I agree with the doctors as the time taken for recovery may be in months or even years. But preventing malnutrition and removal of the cause of stroke helps in quick recovery. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn We have asked the doctor(s) if she has suffered a stroke, they say the MRI or CT (not sure which they performed) showed no stroke and because she shows no signs of paralysis, they feel she simply is taking longer to recover than they thought it would. They also say the self-extubation is not the cause of her current symptoms, just added to them.
Avatar m tn The Spine surgeon mentioned that he used a Neuromonitoring device during the surgery called Intraoperative monitoring for Motor Evoked Potential which is a device that monitors the neurological morbdity during the manipulations in the spine, Most of the signals before the surgery were in red color, after the surgery it showed that all the motor cortex singals of th elimbs are full restored.
Avatar m tn the docotr said it looks like the stroke was when he had his open heart surgery. my question if anyone can help is why did he have the signs of a stroke last year (has had no signs since then) and has now had the effects since that one day in June. mom talked to the people with TBI associatin and they said that it sounds like in May and part of June he was having TIAs that led up to his stroke and if taht was the case it would show as if he did have an old stroke is this true can anyone help?
Avatar m tn Getting a stroke is one of the scariest things that would happen to a person because it can cause a lot of bad things to happen to them that anyone would not like. In the US alone there are about 700,000+ US citizens who have a stroke and that is a scary number. Do you know why a person gets a stroke? That is because your brain did not get blood to it and it will get damaged as a result hence the stroke.

Avatar n tn There is for this reason a much higher rate of neurological complications with this kind of surgery, but this is acceptable because the risk of death from the surgery is so high. It may be that they gave him so much sedation over the last two days that it is going to take him several more days to recover his bearings. This is usually seen in the elderly who may be slow metabolizers of sedatives.

Avatar m tn t recovering, he was scanned again and we were told that plaque had broken loose during surgery and had caused him to have a stroke. If they were able to determine that it was a stroke when we visited him two hours after surgery and had to ride the nurse to get answers, could clot busters have been used in hopes of breaking up the clot within the 3 hour window of a stroke.

1211508 tn?1343079605 5 hours later after the first signs of it. SO it is very important to be aware of the signs of stroke and go to the ER immediately. They say to call an ambulance. 75% of people are not aware of stroke symptoms, so that could account for far more disability than would be otherwise. And be aware of those around you whose judgment can be impaired. I as well a friend of mine thought nothing was wrong even though we couldn't talk and were initially paralyzed.
