Stroke after care

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke after care


Avatar f tn My question is really simple, for those who are care takers of someone with a stroke. My fiance had a stroke 6 mths ago. He's partially blind and has some memory issues. I know this sounds selfish, but what is the outlook for our future. I keep thinking I can't hang in there with him. We have only been together for 2 yrs and I believe that I am just not cut out to take care of someone who is disabled. Should i cut my loss now and move on or is there hope that he will get better.
Avatar n tn that can be neglected after a stroke. Normal hygiene, hair care, shaving, etc. Even cleaning up after they have spilled foods or liquids. For whatever reason, some stroke survivors forget about these little issues that were previously done as a matter of normal routine. In my wifes case, I still have to remind her to do many of those simple items. Turn off the light - Turn off the stove - Close the door - You spilled some coffee.

Avatar n tn My mother had suffered a serious stroke and is due for discharge from hospital after 4 months. Medically, she is quite stabe but had lost the motor movement in the right side and also totally lost recognition and communicative skills/comprehension. Presently, she is still tube fed but is able to take liquids orally. Left hand is able to hold things but cannot respond voluntary to commands ie. most actions appears to be involuntary eg.
Avatar n tn The CT results were not revealed to us until this week, although the scan was performed after her stroke three months ago. They are saying now that the stroke seems to have also affected the other side of her brain which is causing her to have problems with her left hand. She was able a few weeks ago to pick up a glass and drink but is now not able to do that. We are uncertain how to address possible depression.

Avatar n tn My Dad went to an adult day care for several years. My Mother had a stroke and he had Alzheimer's. It was WONDERFUL FOR BOTH AND HE LOVED IT! It was also paid for by Medicare and he was picked up and dropped off at the house.
Avatar n tn I'm looking for the same thing. My mother's doctor says she's elderly, and that seems to be his answer. In otherwords...she's going to die anyway. We just want some quality of life while she's here. I just saw on the web that the University of Florida has a stroke center and also Florida hosital in Orlando. Good luck.
Avatar f tn my sister has stage 3 ovca and hasent been doing to well lately. Two weeks ago she had a big stroke, her speech is pretty bad and her balance is also bad. I have talked to her oncologist and he told me that her cancer had advanced to the point that chemo wasnt working for her anymore, she has tried alot of different ones,and at last ca125 it was almost 4000. They have had a team meeting with all of her doctors and have called hospice. she will be discharged home saturday.
Avatar n tn Until my 88 year old dad's stroke (lacunar) in mid-Oct - he was working a couple of days a week, quite active, though often tired caring for my mom.who is beginning to lose her memory. After 4 weeks of therapy, post stroke - he was told he was doing great & didn't need anymore therapy but to keep exercising. He wasn't satisfied with his progress (still unbalanced, feet shuffling, etc.)& started more therapy in early January which is likely to end v. soon.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend of 3 years suffered a stroke late November 07 after surviving cancer, he was 29. The doctors said the damage in my boyfriend's brain is permanent, the stroke was not severe enough to handicap him but it has affected his memory and mental capacity. They are unsure if he'll ever recover his memory fully. He is recovering slowly but still has trouble remembering people including me.
1346447 tn?1327862572 26 Actual status as on 7th May 2010 a-Patient walks with wheel chair, or with hands supported by care giver, patient washes after toileting but pouring of water is done by care giver. Even can walk some distance without support very slowly. Since 1st of June some immediate or recent memory loss is noticed even by patient. Main task is to remove the fear of falling from patient’s mind. Patient should be made to walk himself without presence of care giver.

Avatar m tn t bedridden but he had a stroke 20 yrs ago and needs assistance. My mom, who was his care giver, just recently had a stroke as well and can't take care of him. We had to place my dad in assisted living. Not sure if your dad served in the military but we were able to get some VA assistance to help cover some costs in the facility. It's called Aid and Attendance. Without the help we wouldn't be able to afford it. It's so tough financially, best of luck.
Avatar f tn Exactly what they did to take care of that issue, I have no idea. 3 days after she fell off the bed, my mom pulled off her trach and was rushed to the hospital. The facility never called my father, brother or I to notify us. My father only found out when he going on his daily visits to the facility and realized she was not in her room.

941118 tn?1312281926 Maybe it's my age, but 3 days post ablation and I'm still tired. Last night I had chest pain and my blood pressure was up, due to the pain probs. But today I guess I am better, but still tired. Just thought I would be Christmas shopping by now. Instead I'm in pj's eating oatmeal :-( Need a Girls Night Out soon. My EP wanted me to start tapering down on the Metoprolol, but I am still taking 50mg because I'm afraid to get off of this drug I have been on so long.
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.
Avatar n tn Dear Dr, I am after some guidance in understanding the medical approach used in the case of my father. In 1999, he had a TIA, was taken to a country hospital and had ECG - no acute changes Cranial nerve and limb power functional tests. - Normal. He was on Warfarin after previous CVA, AMI and DVT six years before. The Hospital DR said as he is on Warfarin there is nothing more you can do. He was sent home and saw his General Paractioner.
