stroke

Avatar n tn My grandfather had an ischemic stroke last Friday. The doctors weren't able to use blood thinners because he was outside of the three-hour window. They sent him home and said rehabilitation wasn't possible because of his age (88) and the severity of the diasability (he doesn't recognize family members, has no control of his bladder, and doesn't know the function of household objects such as the telephone). My question is about what's next.
Avatar n tn Hi Amber I hope my experience can help you a little. I am 60 years old, live in California. My mother was 87 when she had her stroke, she is now 90 and will be 91 in March. It was a very serious clot, the Dr. said it affected about 70 % of her brain. She is left right side paralyzed and has aphasia (she cannot speak, read or write). Her cognative skills are minimal, she cannot even tell yes from no. Prior to this she was independent, living in her own home in San Francisco.

Avatar n tn My dissection resulted in a stroke and my artery is closed forever. You were lucky! My stroke doc says he sees many dissections in people doing less than what I was doing. Like you, my headache started within a couple of hours of me completing the race. Looking back, I feel that was an indicator that something was not right. As far as exercise goes, no running again. I spin now with a heart rate monitor. I don't let my heart rate go above 150. Have you considered that vs checking bp?
