Signs of stroke after surgery

Common Questions and Answers about Signs of stroke after surgery


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.

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.
Avatar m tn Has anyone ever heard of someone waking up after major bypass surgery completley blind? This happened to my father 12 days ago and he still cant see anything. The doctors here are stumped and the only thing they can come up with is he has ishmethic optic neaurpothy. Just wondering if anyone has had or heard of this happening and if there is anything we can do.
Avatar f tn There are many factors in determining the recovery of a stroke patient after a surgery. This includes the type of stroke, severity of symptoms, how much the body is involved, medical condition of the patient ( presence of diabetes, hypertension, heart conditions), age, over-all health and even the type of surgery done. It is best that you discuss this with his attending physicians for proper evaluation and to clear any worries. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn We brought her home with the advice to continue to monitor her for signs of further incidents. She was absolutely fine throughout the rest of the day. By Friday morning however, she was unable to stand, her legs were weak and we noticed rapid eye movements. We returned the vet and were told that she had had a "brain aneurysm" , and was suffering from a bleed somewhere in her brain.
Avatar m tn 00 PM and it came back clear. Hestarted feeling better until 9:00 PM when his right arm started going numb and the tingling in his right foot came back and his speach became slurred. The ER continued to watch him and and at 5:00 AM the next morning decided to transfer him to a large hospital in Kansas City. The medical team in KC ran tests and scheduled an MRI. At 6:30 PM they cnducted the MRI.
Avatar f tn Was having signs of mini strokes..My doctor is sending me to a surgeon, but how long should I wait until surgery, so I can get better? I'm thinking it's because I have no insurance...I'm not getting any better sitting here waiting..
Avatar f tn No he did not have a stroke. We are well aware of those signs, and he does not exhibit any of the classic signs. The right pupil reacts to light and works like it is supposed to. the left one is open and does not react to the light. He said his vision was blurry straight down the left side. Either way he is going to the doctors as soon as they open in the morning. And yes my choice was for him to go to the ER this afternoon when he told me about it.
Avatar f tn it could be possible that you are having symptoms of a stroke the loss of sensation whether it be in your leg hand or face are some of the warning signs, i strongly suggest that you see a neurologist, as i can tell you a stroke is not a fun thing after having one myself because of ignoring the warning signs and ended up losing the ability and use of my hand.
Avatar m tn The CAT Scans do not show any trace of a stroke and the EKG do not show signs of a heart attack. the doctors tell us that there is damage to the brain, but they won't know the extent until my father regains consciousness. He is non responsive to voices and the little movements that he makes that doctors tell us that those are just reflex actions. What can we expect from all this? should we get a second opinion?
Avatar n tn Aspirin also helps prevent a second or recurrent stroke and, as with heart attacks, lessens the damaging effects of a stroke that does occur.
Avatar f tn those are the signs of brain injury, either stroke or surgery, not of dementia. It will get better if it is from swelling of brain tissue rather thandestruction of brain tissue...ask the surgeon.
Avatar f tn can 20 years on dilantin after one seizure, then a stroke with no speech, cause terrible sideeffects?
Avatar n tn Next, the surgeon peels out the plaque deposit by removing the inner lining of the diseased section of the artery containing the plaque. After removing the plaque, your surgeon stitches your artery, removes the clamps or the bypass, and stops any bleeding. He or she then closes the neck incision and the procedure is complete. The procedure takes about 2 hours to perform but may seem slightly longer depending upon the anesthetic and preparation time.
Avatar f tn I was given explicit instructions to observe this area for tenderness, swelling, abnormal pain, warmth in the area of the puncture site, as well as coldness and tingling in the leg. These can be signs of infection and or clotting. I don't want to alarm you, but this is something you don't want to mess around with. Please call you doctor immediately for instruction on what you should do!
368646 tn?1208393887 ) It was a mild stroke, but I still have many deficits (double-vision, ataxia, etc). After trying many drugs and therapies, my Neurologist is at a loss. I have the HSV-1 virus and was doing some research on how the virus can be reactivted during brain surgery. I have posed this to my Neurologist and she prescribed Acyclovir (400 mg 5x/day orally). She prescibed it for 14 days. I have taken it for five days with no results.
Avatar f tn risk factors associated with stroke are coronary and other heart disease, diabetes, family history of stroke, hypertension, smoking etc. you need to be evaluated by a physician for any concomitant risk factors which could jeopardize and put you at risk of a stroke. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar f tn they set the machine for what they r looking for IE- use the machine with the right strength /magnification and then do certain slices and angles to look for damage or signs of stroke....and it is not that have no idea what to look for , they know or r considering it a possibility. I know this must be very difficult for u as well...
Avatar m tn s book, MY STROKE OF INSIGHT. She was a brain scientist working for Harvard and has written an incredibly educational and inspirational account of her journey. Through walking with hand weights and other things, she finally recovered walking with a normal rhythm 8 YEARS AFTER HER HORRIFIC STROKE. God bless your Mom and you - go, go, GO!! Choob (aka Splash, back to swimming 2300 - 2500 yds. 5 days a week in under an hour, praise God!
Avatar f tn There is such a thing as a TIA (transient ischemic attack), which resembles a stroke in how it works but reverses itself within about 24 hours if I remember correctly on the time frame. However, please note that one of the hallmarks of a stroke or stroke-like event is the inability to speak in coherent sentences, can't stick out the tongue, facial weakness on one side, etc.
Avatar f tn The main problems started after the surgery, the doctors usually remove the ventilator 4-5 hours after surgery but in the case of my father, every time they would try to wean him off the ventilator, his vital signs would drop and they decided not to take him off the ventilator.
477009 tn?1210876873 My father recently suffered a stroke about a month ago. One week after the stroke, he started gaining movement, speech and swallowing back. He was doing so well that he was placed into rehab, and was able to walk a bit with a walker, shower, eat and talk. Then a few days after, he started regressing, and is now bed ridden. He lost his ability to swallow, can't speak, or walk. The feeding tube was not working, so he has been put back on IV fluids....
Avatar n tn I have not told my surgeons yet because this started after I saw both of them for the last time before I go into the hospital. My primary dr. said he thought it was definitely caused by the 2 strokes that occurred after the surgery to remove the aneurysm. Can these tests be done in the hospital or are they strickly out patient tests? I am going to do neuro rehab this time in hospital after surgery since I did not get to do that last time.
