Common Questions and Answers about Stroke after hip replacement


Avatar n tn My dad is 76 and had a massive stroke to the left side of his brain, after the stroke he was in the hospital for 5 days and sent to acute rehab. He was there for 4 days and developed severe aspiration pnemonia and was put in ICU for 3 or 4 days and then in a regular room for about another 8 days, then Humana woud not approve him for acute rehab and sent him to a su acute rehab/nursing home where he was for 6 days.
Avatar n tn I must admit I have used this on my honey before and it worked just recently. After the heat stroke 10 years ago he knows how much I worry so he went for me. There really is no way to tell you what is wrong though I have given you some possibilities the infection is what is so worrisome with me. I hope your successful in getting him to go and keep us updated on how he is doing.
Avatar f tn The left two times and never any complications or infections. The last revision (replacement after original replacement) was when I was 61. The reason for the multiple replacements on the right hip is because the bone grafts from cadavers didn't take until they removed some bones from my pelvis and used those. Now everything is fine and NO pain.
Avatar n tn My husband suffered a stroke caused by a fatty embolism after hip replacement surgery in January of 2002. He has a high stress, long hour executive position and went back to work approximately 3 months following his surgery and stroke. Recently his boss has told him that he feels my husband has lost his "edge", doesn't shift priorities fast enough, takes too many notes, etc. This has been a blow to my husband as he's not sure if it's true or not.
Avatar n tn The neuro surgeon said it was a large deep bleed in the left side of her brain, apparently she is lucky to have survived it and without surgery. The latest CT scan 3.5 weeks after the stroke the blood has started to re-absorb and swelling is going down. She is currently in a rehab hospital (March 18) with paralysis on the right side (arm and leg) and has aphasyia - she understands us but has a hard time getting her words out (she does put small phases together at times).
Avatar n tn My mother had a stroke 3 weeks following a hip replacement. The DR. found a blood clot in her neck. In October, we were told that the stroke was massive, to be prepared for the worse. After 4 weeks in the Cleveland CLinic, completely on a ventalator, trech, feeding tube, and other tubes, she was transfered to a hospital unit in a rehab clinic.
Avatar m tn I'm new to this group but have been around for a while in the MS forum. As carolanivey said, the pain that you describe as being in his groin is really in his hip. I used to think that hip pain had to be felt on the outside. Not so much :-) The actual hip socket is right where the top of the femur turns in to meet the pelvis. This was a marvel of anatomy I learned when my doc told me I had about 80% bone on bone osteoarthritis in my left hip. I was 49 then (53 now).
Avatar n tn ALWAYS insist on having physical therapy after surgery, whether fusion or disc replacement. Some doctors are fishy about this, and it seems silly. There may be a period you need to wait after surgery for therapy, but disc/spinal degeneration ALWAYS has a postural component, and if you fixate the neck or replace the disc without retraining posture and movement, you will certainly develop early degeneration of the spine and increase risk of wearing out replacement discs.
Avatar f tn My mother is 70, she broke her hip and has undergone a total hip replacement surgery. 3 weeks after the surgery she suffered a dislocation of the prosthesis. Although there is no fracture and the prosthesis is in good condition, a surgeon has suggested that she needs to undergo a further surgery to modify the prosthesis. This is because, as she suffered a stroke 25 years ago, and has a residual hemiparesis on the hip replacement side, the surgeon thinks that dislocations will reoccur.
Avatar n tn Read the book - Stronger After Stroke to see what is possible for rehabilitation. You alsolutely need to find out what caused the stroke so the next one can be prevented. For a bleed survivor book there is A Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte-Taylor or Teaching Me to Run by Tommye K Mayer. For a clot survivor story there is Change in the Weather by Mark McEwan While there may be nothing the doctors can do, if she survives the survivor has lots that can be done to recover.

Avatar f tn I am 77 years old. I have had my right ovary removed due to 6.5cms cyst found when MRI scan was done for hip replacement. I was fit & happy enjoying life until the removal 4 weeks ago. 2 weeks after op I was driving when suddenly I had a very weird feeling & thought I was having a stroke ending up in A&E - I wasn't.

Avatar n tn I am also glad I found this post, since I was beginning to feel like I was the only one who had such a complaint, and it was just plain weird. After several years of putting up with these "flu-like" symptoms after aerobic exercise, I think I have finally found out what's going on. While scanning the web searching for answers, I came across a site that deals with digestive ailments, and their possible influences on your body.
Avatar n tn I must get out of bed and start walking around or sit in a chair for the pain to start going away. After an hour or two, the pain basically disappears. The pain seems to be emanating from my spine, and tensing up the back muscles nearest the spine. I have been seeing a chiropractor/massage therapist for about 4 weeks now, and it has not helped, because the pain is only after I sleep! I am 23 years old.
Avatar n tn Hi jem I just finished my 3rd treatment with interferons. The first time I did tx was for 6 months "i am 2B" and after I finished that tx I Had many side effects that lasted for almost 2 years. Pain from joints lack of energy, insomnia, brain fog and reduced cognitive process. But the one that contributed to most of this was interferon induced depression, I thought it was from the drugs that some how they had screed up my head.

Avatar f tn They need to check to see if a blood clot could be causing her stroke-like symptoms. Unfortunately that is an all too common after effect of hip replacement surgery. Have her see a neurologist asap.
Avatar n tn I did a lot of research on artifical disc replacement and am hopeful that after my surgery on September 11th and living and breathing by my chronic pain book...that I will lead a normal life. Another thing that has helped me a lot is my faith in God to get me through. I had my grieving time. The why me syndrome. You do need to deal with that, but then get right back up, and determine that this pain is not going to rule the life that God intended for you to enjoy.
Avatar f tn I couldn't imagine having a four level fusion with the lack of mobility I have after a two level. Most people that I've talked to are fully recovered after three months. I hope everything goes well.
Avatar n tn From time to time, I have had to see a doctor for neck stiffness and pain and would usually feel better after about a week off work and medication. Starting in October or November of 2006, I started having additional and more severe symptoms that included severe limitation in range of motion, extreme pain when attempting to move my neck. It was worse when attempting to touch ear to shoulder, where there is almost zero range.
Avatar n tn "after treatment - 2 years after SVR " " ,Just have a few souvenirs after treatment. " My point excellant trade off in this case IMHO ..congrats.

Avatar n tn My husband has hip pain and may require hip replacement. The orthopaedic surgeon prescribed Diclofenac to control the pain at a dose of 50 mg 3 x per day. After reading about the side effects, it seems that there is an increased risk of heart attack and stroke the longer one takes this medicine, and my husband already had a heart attack 4 years ago. There are also possible side effects if Diclofenac is taken with Paxil and ace inhibitors, both of which he is also taking.
Avatar f tn I have never had any corrective surgery for this other than the hip pinning at age 13. But certain types of surgery - osteotomy, hip resurfacing, hip replacement - are definitely a consideration......I lay awake at night dreaming of how great it would be to have a normal set of hips! Feel free to contact me......
Avatar n tn Apparently that can occur with stroke survivors months or possibly even years after the stroke, and it occurs when the brain mistakes the signals from a part of the body as being pain signals even when they are not. Apparently there are some meds that can help with this, from antidepressants to antiseizure meds and more.
417130 tn?1202790494 While he was in the physical therapy department my mother who had osteoporosis fell in a hailstorm breaking her hip and her arm. She had a hip replacement and was able to walk with a walker. For several years my Father was able to walk and be self sufficient with my help until he fell and broke his hip. Due to his size I was unable to take care of him and with a heavy heart put him in a nursing home. He went into the nursing home June 2004.
Avatar m tn My Mother had a brain hemorrhage and was never allowed general anaesthetic after that. She even had to endure a hip replacement with local anaesthetic only. So Angioplasty laser sounds ideal as the next step if medication fails.
