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 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.

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 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.

1383937 tn?1279654134 How common are headaches after a stroke? I had a hemmoragic stroke in April and had surgery to find and stop the bleeding. My neurologist says headaches are to be expected but how do I tell if I am in trouble? I don't remember the stroke. I was in a coma for 6 weeks and I don't know what my symptoms were?
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 n tn Months after the stroke I started having foot and leg pain. Soon after the pain moved to my upper body. I now have constant burning pain in my hands, arms, and back. My lower arms feel tight, and my back is tender to the touch. I have been trying to get a diagnosis and have been in pain for over a year. The stroke occured in my cerebellum, so they don't understand why I'm in so much pain, or what caused it. Does anyone have a similiar experience? Thank you for any assistance.

Avatar n tn Posted By Lizabeth on December 28, 1998 at 12:05:08: First I would like to thank you for your reply to my message of 12/21/98. You said that there were some gaps in my message, I will try to fill those in. My mom did have a hemorrhagic stroke on the same side as her surgery. My mom was not prone to headaches, her headache was a frontal headache so intense that she stayed in bed after she came home from the hospital.

Avatar f tn I had an AVM reuptured causing a brain bleeding and a stroke, then surgery to remove the blood and AVM while being 31 weeks pregnant. Should i try to have any more children? or should i try to get pregnant again?
Avatar n tn It is permanent, it sometimes gets smaller over the 6 months following the stroke or tumor removal but after 6 months improvement almost never happens. Patients adjust to the field loss and function better with time so after 6 months it's not as much of a problem for the patient as right after the stroke. There is a new technique for trying to improve visual field loss after a stroke.
