Stroke recovery coma

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery coma


Avatar f tn i have an uncle who is now in coma for 4 days. He met a vehicular accident. He was unconsoius when brought to the hospital. The doctors said that he suffered from stroke since he has a HIGH BLOOD. Diagnosis was hemorrhagic stroke and said it was fatal. MAy i know if he has the chance to recover considering the period of his coma. I sthere achance to recover if the the doctor says his brain is dead already. How come yesterday he responded to any pain when pinch. is this a good sign?
Avatar f tn I am really sorry to hear about your spouse. Brain injury is difficult to predict. The time taken for recovery after stroke and crainectomy depends on the site of clot, degree of stroke, neurological problems associated, general condition of the patient and other such factors. It is difficult to predict when one will come out of coma. Only the treating specialist can throw some light on it. In all probability he too may not be able to give a clear cut picture. Wish you luck!
Avatar m tn I suffered a Stroke and Heart Attack followed by a 4 month Coma in 09. I have no effects of it other than I have lost my sense of direction and some memory loss. Will my memories return? I miss some of them, like driving. The Doctors drilled holes in my skull and drained the blood off because they had only given me a 10% chance of making it out of the coma. I guess this procedure is not done very much, yet it worked very well for me.

Avatar n tn In my case when I was 19 I had a brain hemorrhage that caused a massive stroke. after removing the blood flow I get in coma for a week. Doctors could not guarantee if I would wake up or the time it would take. my sister tells me that she spoke and sang to me while I was in a coma is important to keep the faith and be positive although it is very difficult. About the recovery when she wake up from coma then the doctors could really know what injuries (if is there one) she have.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your question. I can understand your worrying concerns about post-stroke recovery. Unfortunately, rehabilitation is the only effective way to help the patient regain function to the possible extent after coma and prevent from permanent losses. If rehabilitation program is appropriately instituted, most of the stroke patients can regain maximum functions with appropriate therapy, training and support services.

Avatar n tn My Grandmother had a major ischemic stroke 3 months ago. This first stroke was then followed by a major bleed in her basal artery. Immediately following these strokes she was in a semi coma for 2-3 days, with no responses at all. Some improvement was then seen in her; such as a response to us and questions we ask her, an new ability to move her non-stroked side and better hand coordination (she can move her right side) and she open and see out of one eye (her left eye).
Avatar f tn My 61 year old mother had a massive left side hemorrhagic cva (fronto temporo parietal +intra ventricular) a week ago, she had an operation and doctors extract the hematoma, she is in coma now, her GCS is about 9-10, her eyes are open, she can blink her eyes, she is not able to do anything else. but she responses to painful stimulus. Doctors said she may not come out of coma at all, and they suggest we can take care of her at home, but I think her conditions are improving.
Avatar n tn But again, the first things I mentioned are all very important (especially the neuro exam findings) in helping to determine how severe her coma is. EEG and Evoke potentials are both tests that can also evaluate the level of coma she is in. If there is any doubt as to her potential recovery, I would consider putting her in rehab to wait and see what she does. Please keep in mind that I have not personally reviewed your mother's films nor examined her.
Avatar f tn after a hemorragic stroke, what is the longest that someone has been in a coma or near coma state and woke up and recovered. please i hope there is someone out there that this happened to.
Avatar f tn My inlaw had mager stroke how and went to coma after operation of blood clot how much long will he take him to recover
Avatar n tn I have tried searching the internet for realistic expectations about her chances for recovery, but all of them are quite vague and only give general stroke recovery statistics without regard to the immediate aftermath of the stroke. For instance, a person obviously has a better chance at recovery if they never lose consciousness or if they are unconcious for only a short time. Can someone give me some blunt, realistic outlook on her prospects?
Avatar f tn My mother In law had an Hemorrhagic stroke 11/20 and was in ICU for three weeks in a coma . Week one was absolutely no response and the left side we were told was paralysed. Week two she was able to squeeze your hand and open her eyes for no longer than 10 minutes. Week three she was released on wednesday to a rehabilitation center. When she got there she was able to open her eyes for long periods of times and follows the commands on her right side only.
Avatar f tn s doctors and what they did for him. Stroke recovery is a slow process, not only for the stroke victim, but for the family as well. It takes a while to process the event and all of the pain. Dad was making a miraculous recovery considering the extent of his brain injury. He regained great movement on his left, affected side and was walking with the use of a walker. Mentally he is still himself, with a few more hiccups. Words don't come to him as easy.
Avatar n tn My love, Queen, Angel had her stroke 4 Mar 2005. She is now in PVS. Is there any possible chance of recovery ? She had a Mid Brain Stroke, doctors said "she will never recover". As i stayed with her for 4+ months she did exibit improvement, such as feeling returning from waste to head but no acknowledgement to any out side stimulation. Her eyes were sluggish but did respond to light. She coughed alot & exibited movement. Has anyone else experienced this type of stroke ?

Avatar n tn I heard that meningitis is a very serious disease and having a stroke with existing stroke conditions, what are the chances and if a patient survives, what are the long term effects?
Avatar n tn I am sorry to hear this about your friend. Unfortunately it is hard to say why he is in a coma. It could be from a stroke, could be from a loss of cerebral blood perfusion due to the surgery. If the MD's havent determined why, then it is hard to say...Good luck and keep your head up. Even in a coma people can hear others talking to them. Visit him if possible and play music or read to him. If there is not significant neurological damage, it is only a matter of time before he wakes up..
Avatar m tn my dad is in coma for 90 days he is 67 years old he had a stroke in the left side of brain in 13-12-2013 and in 14-12-2013 had a brain surgery (doctors cut a piece of his skull and put it in his belly to reduce the pressure) his conscience level is 4 to 5 out of 15 his brain damage in the next day to stroke was about 90% of the left side , he's in icu since then he respond to pain by some face movements related to pain was moving his right arm and leg now he dont even move them> my ques
Avatar n tn He was diagnosed with a Hemorrhagic Stroke. He has been in a Coma since last week today will make it the 9th day of being in a Coma. He has no funtions of his body, and isnt able to open his eyes, i have noticed on one occasion that he moved his eyes but thats the only sign of life i have seen in him. I have a few questions and please be honest, and let me know the truth becuase I know some German but i cant translate everything.
Avatar n tn Also, there is so much we can do as health care team/physical therapist and you as a family (talk to your physical therapist and discuss that with him, he should know). Coma following a stroke could happen, especially if a specific area of the bran, the reticular formation, is affected. So until the brain decides that your nephew is safe, he would wake up. Just wait and have faith, it is gonna be a long journey. I will keep praying for him..
2197322 tn?1338842193 I am interested in further information, plus contacting other individuals with respect to myxedema coma recovery, regarding recovery after this medical incident - an incident that no specialists have been able to shed adequate light on - apart from telling me that I should recover in time, but they cannot guarantee the return of full brain or muscle function, given that there is not enough in the scientific literature regarding the seemingly very individual implications arising from such an inc
Avatar m tn they also took a piece of her skull out to relief pressure. They put her in induce coma. Before they pumped her full of drugs her last words where stay by my side. The nurse asked if she could name every one in the room and she called her mom "mom" she called me "nobody" and the nurse a monster because he had a beard. They left the room and I grabbed my girl friend and put my hands on her shoulders and said who am I very straight forward and bold, she responded your babe.
