Avatar m tn Hi, emotional changes are typical after any type of stroke. Right after a stroke, a survivor may respond one way, yet weeks later respond differently. Emotional reactions caused by a stroke are different from normal emotional reactions. The reaction may have little or no obvious connection. Your father may be going through these changes. Support and understanding will help them to tide over till recovery. Good luck with his therapy. Regards.

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 Very sorry to hear about your stroke. I applaud your courage and motivation in what sounds like a tough recovery period. To accurately comment on prognosis or outcome of your stroke, I would have to examine you personally and see your imaging studies to know exactly what was damaged and how far you've come. To be honest, I'm not sure that anyone can tell you whether or not you will ever reach your high baseline functioning status.

Avatar m tn Helping a person recover from stroke is collectively termed as stroke rehabilitation. For the motor skills physiotherapy is needed. Techniques such as exercise, manipulation, massage, skills training and electrical treatment are used. Consult a neuro physiotherapist and follow the instructions at home.

Avatar f tn That is a difficult question to answer. First off, so-called "strokes" can be caused by either clots or bleeds. Sometimes you start with a clot, take anti-coagulents and end up with a bleed. The etiology of the stroke is important. For example, a small stroke can be caused by simple dehydration. The human brain has great redundancy. In some cases memory is damaged. In other strokes only partial paralysis may be involved, which may disappear.

Avatar n tn Do you mean a physical trauma to someone that is recovering from a stroke? Or memory loss due to a stroke? Strokes can definitely cause memory loss. If trauma after a stroke, what kind? Trauma to the head? How long ago was the stroke? I know that the doctors and therapists were very worried about setbacks if my husband were to fall or hit his head by banging into something in the first few months after his stroke.
Avatar n tn t say when he had his stroke, please remember that stroke recovery is a long slow process - so a couple of months (if that's the case) is really early on. Please tell him to keep up the hard work.
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).
