Avatar m tn Full recovery may be limited by the type and severity of impairment, the location of the stroke and the amount of damage to the surrounding brain tissue.

Avatar f tn I would like to hear from anyone with advice on STROKE REHABILITATION, especially for right sided paralysis (Left-Hemisphere Stroke)... In doing alot of reading it seems that speech is one of the things effected. I understand each stroke and stroke patient is different, but what could we expect in relation to time of recovery and how much recovery should we realistically expect? Any advice or experiences shared would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn The dose of Haldol used varies depending on the clinical situation, past medical history, and other medications the patient is taking. A dose of 5mg is a common dose prescribed for agitation, and is the typical IV anti-psychotic used to treat ICU psychosis. Therefore, I cannot answer your question completely, becuase the choose of medication and dose depends on the clinical situation at the time. I hope this helps.

Avatar n tn Hi all, I had a stroke when I was 21 years old, It was a small stroke and due to my age and stamina only took me 4 months to recover, since then I have been on no medication. I am now 30 years old and now looking back have begun to realise that the problems I am experiencing could be due to TIA's and side effects of the stroke. I am very "up and down", have (which is the opposite to some) very bad hearing.
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 m a 79 year old female who had led an active life till two years ago when I had a stroke that paralyzed much of my right side. I spent a month in a rehab facility, a month of home treatment,and a month at a treatment center. I can now do about 75 % of what I had been able to do; walk a block, play 9 holes of golf, stand on my feet long enought to prepare a meal, dry and curl my hair.
Avatar m tn The tone? Are you meaning the effects? Unless it's a transient ischemic attack (TIA), none of the effects are likely to reverse. TIA effects reverse within 24 hours.
1110049 tn?1409402144 When I had a stroke on 17th June my face dropped on one side. i had a bleed on left side of my brain. My left side is weak and I find talking difficult.

My speech hardly improved, and now i have lost my voice, but that may not be due to the stroke. my walking not too bad, but cannot use my left arm and hand.
Avatar f tn Call your oncologist. Chances are you're not having a stroke but they'll know best what to test for. Chemo and rad-chemo can be terribly difficult and fatigue, nueropathy, aches and deep pain are not uncommon. Rest ..... And call your Doc. You'll feel much better for it.
Avatar f tn I am 62-years old, a nonsmoker or drinker. I do take Lamictal/Klonopin for bipolar 2. My mother died of a stroke at age 69 (smoker). My maternal grandmother also had a stroke. I am very concerned.
Avatar f tn Wow! I never would have imagined so many young people having strokes. It's a pretty scarry thought. It's one of my big worries when I'm experiencing my really bad head pains. They come on so suddenly and are so painful that each time I think ok this is it, I'm having a stroke. Luckily that's not the case and my headaches are also not accompanied by any other stroke symptom but that's my only relief.
Avatar f tn I had a hemorraghic stroke in the cerebellum region 8 months ago. Thankfully it was mild in that I wasn't left with paralysis. The bleed was small (about the size of a quarter) and the vessel closed back on its own. The doctors were unable to determine the cause. I didn't have any of the risk factors. I was told I should be able to return to work in 6 weeks.
