Stroke causes death

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke causes death


Avatar f tn I guess I'm hoping that she didn't starve to death although she passed a week after she had the stroke. If we had put a feeding tube in her would she have lived? I understand I should just accept this but it nags at me not knowing and I'm sure her quality of life would have been awful. I know she's not suffering now and I am glad about that but I would just like to know what the bleeding in the brain does. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hopefully someone get give me and my family some direction and feedback on this subject. We just lost our mother last week to a massive stroke that led to her death. We now believe this is a result of some complication from a cardio ablation she had on May 7 and a cardio version on May 14 as well as neglect to some lingering symptoms following these procedures.
Avatar f tn 2) What could be the main reason of his death? 3) When all the reports are normal just have Stroke impact in LHS, which was also improving then what actully happed, and he dead?
Avatar f tn Calamity Jane Grey (Victoria's sister) was 21 1/3 when a pair of strokes got her. Unfortunately, sudden death is not uncommon with our kitty friends, especially when they are Elder Cats. We even lost one at 6 1/2 to anaphylactic shock from a sedative the vet gave her; Miss April Dancer. I guess I'm saying, need more info...
Avatar n tn Sorry about your loss. Unfortunately, sudden cardiac death from heart attack is unpredictable. In fact, it is the young males with no previous history that seem to be most affected. He took care of himself and led a good lifestyle, therefore, that's unlikely the root of the problem. A lot of this stuff is genetic, as we are beginning to learn more and more about it. He probably is the first case, index case in your family.
Avatar m tn Russert's untimely death raises questions about how we're treating heart disease Dear Friend, You won't hear me say this often about anyone in mainstream media, but T. Russert, newsman and anchor of Meet the Press, was someone I respected. I took great joy in watching politicians squirm under his tough questioning. So, like most Americans, I was sad to hear the tragic news of his sudden death. After all, Russert was just 58 years old — relatively young by today's standards.
Avatar n tn My mother suffered a watershed stroke during or after cardiac surgery 7 years ago. She is still paralyzed on her right side but regained other skills through my constant care and talking about memories she had lost. She is now 88 and her short-term memory is failing. My question is regarding mood swings. Does this type of stroke affect one's ability to manage anger? She is almost bi-polar with me and I don't always see the change coming.
Avatar n tn There are many possible etiologies. The most likely scenario is that something is causing pressure on something else which is either causing that something to have an oxygen deficiency or causing it not to transmit a nerve impulse. Stress can cause a spasm in a blood vessel, for example. That spasm can reduce blood flow to the tissue that blood vessel serves. Stress can also alter the osmolality of the tissues, which can cause pressure on a nerve bundle. Inflammation can cause the same effect.
Avatar n tn Doctors are still denyign i had a stroke, thats 6 years ago. i guess they have to actually do work if I have a stroke instead of 100 second consultations.
Avatar n tn I just got my results from an mri i had done about a month ago and it says mild periventricular white matter micro-ischemic changes..I am scared to death and freaking out... Could that mean I had a small stroke or the starting of ms????
8016255 tn?1396296964 I think it's probably common in the US that autopsies are not performed on elderly or chronically ill individuals whose exact cause of death is not known but who obviously died of natural causes. The cause of death can be labeled as something like, "cardiopulmonary arrest" (which does not mean a heart attack; it simply means that the heart and lungs stopped). I believe this may be done in situations in which there does not seem to be any legal or medical need for an autopsy.
Avatar f tn She went back to a home and 3 months ago was put onto respirdal for apparent behavior issues(that in my opinion exaggerated to obtain funding by issuing drugs) she has just had a stroke which in Janssen consumer information states the drug causes stroke, tardive dyslexia, behavior changes, sleeplessness and agitation. The doctors will not remove her from respirdal and my mother is dying. A victim of a system that supports billion dollar pharmaceutical companies.
Avatar n tn His tolerance was higher than many of us w/ what he had been dealing with. Maybe death certificate gives a clue. SAH is rare & I'm justing mentioning it as a possible. If there was a brainstem compression over long period of time, I would think this would be noted in his files. Maybe a few of my suggestions like contacts of family/files/Dr. Solomon, will help when you are able to process things. He was a wonderful person to share himself w/ his knowledge while dealing w/ his pain.

Avatar n tn No more than ten hours later did he have a stroke. He was hospitalised for over 2 months because of paralysis on his right side. The specialist informed my father in-law that the stroke proceeding the car accident was just coincidental. On the contrary, his doctor believes thats not the case. He only widhed he had some way to prove it. My father in-law was 56 when he suffered the stroke. He in a non-smoker, non-drinker and overall has great health.
Avatar m tn A transmural MI means tissue death has occurred through the complete thickness of the heart wall, whereas nontransmural has not. If they have determined you have nontransmural then there is a good chance EF can be increased over time.
Avatar n tn HTM I think that it is good that you no longer want to take pills, I had a stroke last July, it was fairly serious and I found myself taking all sorts of pills but six months later, with the approval of my doctor, I no longer take any type of pill, zero. The pills that I was taking were all modern drugs but the side effects were not good, I must have had them all, I feel much better not taking anything.
Avatar n tn Types of stroke Most strokes occur when a blood clot blocks one of the arteries (blood vessels) that carries blood to the brain. This type of stroke is called an ischaemic stroke. Transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is a short-term stroke that lasts for less than 24 hours. The oxygen supply to the brain is restored quickly, and symptoms of the stroke disappear completely. A transient stroke needs prompt medical attention as it is a warning of serious risk of a major stroke.
1390615 tn?1299429891 The coroner ruled the cause of death as stroke. He had no previous history of stroke. My family and I have been trying to come to grips with this because it was unexpected. Could his stroke have had anything to do with his cataract surgery or the anesthesia he was given? Or was it merely a coincidence that it happened right after his surgery?
Avatar m tn is strep that causes folliculitis the same strep that causes strep throat?wow i am falling asleep from typing this i will try more later thanks as always .
Avatar n tn Low blood Pressure. The two possible causes of my stroke are I was on the Pill, and I suffered some neck strain the day before the stoke. The legion on my spine went from C5 to T3. It took me months to learn how to walk again. I still have some paralysis (Right Hand) Weak Right leg and torso. I do not know if I am going to have a Natural Birth or a C Section. Doctors are reluctant to do C section and I am fearful that I may not be able to push.
Avatar n tn Dear Sandra: Again, stroke usually causes loss of function and not a gain of function such as muscle contraction. The right sided numbness might be an indication of a TIA as it was a loss of function or sensation. Leiden V mutations usually cause embolic strokes or venous infarctions. There is usually a family history of DVTs or other clotting problems.
Avatar n tn I recommend keeping a journal of events-- then you can look back for patterns. A stroke can mess up ways of processing information, of communicating. The stroke person and the significant others need to learn to communicate anew which can be done with good humor and attention. My mother can't get pronouns we've joined her in screwing them up and we now rely on context more than precision of language.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 21 yr old female who had a iscemic stroke 3 months ago caused by my pill. I'm almost back to normal now living my life which I was before the stroke. I'm on clopidagrel to thin my blood which I need to be on forever. I want to hear from anyone in the same age bracket - to talk to.
Avatar n tn You will hear it a lot "all strokes are different", so you can't say that if one person lives for 10 years, or 4 years that another person won't die right away. I am only talking from my experience with my mother, so I am not a medical person. First of all, no they did not give my mother the clot busting drug TPA, they said they did not know the exact time of the stroke and it would be too riskey, not knowing her full medical history and her age.
Avatar n tn My father had a similar sounding stroke on Dec. 8, 2006. He seemed pretty alert, spoke well, could swallow, etc. His major problems were left side paralysis and double vision. After about three weeks, he took his first steps and within 2 weeks of that was walking 40 feet with a walker. He was not able to start moving his left hand until about 4 weeks in. At that point, he could move all fingers and make a loose fist.
Avatar n tn My 55 yr old mother had a "massive" hemorrhagic stroke Feb. 18/05. 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.
Avatar n tn I don't have any knowledge of what could have happened to your dog, but would like to say I'm sorry to hear of her death. My dog is also twelve, and at the vet last week I read on a chart that she is beyond being a senior, she is in the geriatric stage, which yours would have been too. Its hard to believe their that old, you can at the very least be comforted that she didn't have a disease that you would have to watch her suffer with, or have to euthanize her.
