Avatar n tn My 88 year old mother had a right brain side stoke after surgery to repair a broken hip and wrist. She is healing quite well from the surgeries and is even able to stand with help during her rehabilitation, but she is constantly sleepy and slips into a religious rambling and looking for Jesus in the halls, and in her room. It comes at any time and for no apparent reason, she could be waking up or just sitting and resting, with or without company in the room.

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 having surgery done on my hip
Avatar m tn I was trying to know the statistics of any risks after general anaesthesia in patients with stroke clot history and myocardial infarction. My dad has already had the hip surgery 2 days ago, but we can notice that he can't use the walker and is unable to get out of bed for more than a few seconds because of dizziness as he claims. Would this raise any worries about confusion in stroke patients post op.
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 My husband developed a ventricular clot after knee surgery. He was post MI ( STEMI ) which had occurred two years earlier and was on Plavix which had been stopped for surgery. TEE showed evidence of old apical ventricular clot, presumably at the time of the MI. It was theorized that new clot formed after the Plavix was stopped and embolized when it was resumed since he suffered a right MCA stroke 21 days post op. He is now on Coumadin and needs right hip replacement.
Avatar n tn He had been having hip pain before that time. It has now been a year since surgery. He has been having hip pain again. He said he did not have it for the six months he was off work. Do you think the hip pain could be related to the cancer or is unrelated? Do you think he should have another bone scan or could it possbily be arthristis? My husband is 61 years old. He has had 3 psa tests and they have all been at undectectable levels.
1672915 tn?1335220598 Well it's been a little over a month since I had surgery for a torn hip labrum. I am supposed to use crutches so I don't put weight on my hip but I am having problems using them due to the fact that I have bad coordination and balance.Started pt a few weeks ago but some of the stretches make the pain worse. I am so sick of staying in the house not being able to do to much cuz just walking a few steps hurts I hope that I will be able to go back to work by April.
Avatar f tn Troy had his hip-replacement surgery.
Avatar f tn Dad had a stroke 12 days ago after hip surgery. He was in great health both physically and mentally prior to fall/stroke. He has a trach and feeding tube and is getting minimal support through a vent. Vitals are good. Dr's give us a grim prognosis. He follows commands shakes head yes/no and is starting to move his left side a little more each day. He is mouthing words but is "asleep" most of the time. Drs seem to be pushing us to make a decsison.
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?
Avatar f tn My mother is 57 has rheumatoid arthritis, lupus & diabetic for over 20 years. My mother has had 2 heart attacks with 6 stints & a stroke last October. After all of her health problems she was still 100% independent until 01/29/2008 when she was having left hip pain the week prior & she thought it was her arthritis flaring up after extreme pain & unable move in the bed & walk without assistance we took her to the emergency room where her temperature was 103.
Avatar n tn The doc at ICU said he should be awake, they took him for a scan to see if he had a stroke but there was no sign of a stroke. When they put the medicine that keeps him asleep down, he moves his leg, arms, mouth and opens his eye lids without moving his pupils and doesn't respond to anything i say. the nurse tried shaking him and speaking very loudly but there was no reaction besides opening his eye lids. What is the problem? What can we do besides wait and approx.

374661 tn?1199911875 He had to be rushed to the hospital to have his hip replaced. When he was all done with surgery, the next day, he had a brain aneurysm and that led into a massive stroke. On top of that all, he has emphazeema. He was responding more in the beggining and now he is sleeping most of the time and not really opening his eyes (like he used to.) The doctors said that the next few days (the weekend) is critical. Time will tell.
Avatar n tn stroke after surgery might be not restarting an aspirin a day if you were on it before surgery. Once a stroke has occurred, the immediate damage, for the most part, is done. The key issue at that point and in your case is to prevent further more debilitating strokes from occurring. : You should see your primary care physician regarding the recent stroke for : a complete workup and management of risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking, for starters.
Avatar f tn Bless your heart!! I don't know of any other Young Person that has been through as many surgeries as you have. I know that they are out there but you are the first one that I have met on MH. You are such a brave Young Woman and I think that you are incredible, a true Role Model to many other Young People out there having to face difficult situations every day. I'm very proud to know you!! :) I'm so glad that your Doctor's are listening and going to pursue all of this.
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.
