Avatar n tn She also tells stories about things that never happened. What is her prognosis for recovery in this area--the neurologist says that there is no brain damage. Is this something that just takes time? Thank you in advance for your reply.
Avatar n tn Hi, Stroke rehabilitation, or, in more optimistic terms, stroke recovery, is the process by which patients with disabling strokes undergo treatment to help them return to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living. It is multidisciplinary in that it involves a team with different skills working together to help the patient.
Avatar n tn I greatly appreciate your stories of recovery after hemorrhagic stroke. My 81-year-old husband had this type of stroke on 7/3. It was a rather large bleed in the back right portion of his brain. Many of your experiences sound exactly like mine. He is on a ventilator and feeding tube, although he has been breathing for up to 10 hours without the vent. He has just begun opening his eyes and blinking them, and also lifting his right arm a bit.
500374 tn?1210075013 I had a brain stem stroke in March 04, I was 42. I cant report any cognitive or memory issues, actually I wrote a book about my new life. so my memory seems to be as sharp as it was. I think the stroke decides (In a manner of speaking) what is effected. I just made it aswell. I am severly disabled.
Avatar n tn My 71 year old mother had a massive stroke on Jan 7, 2007. Nine days after she had a double bypass and valve replacement heart surgery. The stroke has impacted her left side (her arm and leg). She is now in rehab. She is still has a hard time standing up. We would like to know whether she can ever walk again.
Avatar n tn Just my thoughts, as I have gone through a similar experience. My comments posted in Feb. 2005 "Hemorrhagic Stroke Recovery". My 55 yr old mom did not follow commands for the dr's, she often looked at them like she had no idea what they were saying, they would say "give me a thumbs up" or "stick your tongue out". They asked her "what year it was", her name" and she had no idea what they were asking.
Avatar n tn does anyone know what the recovery time is for this type of stroke and the prognosis? we have done alot of praying and the doctors can't tell us anything. they want us to give up on her and place her in long term care...but we plan to bring her home and give her the love and attention she needs along with therapy...
Avatar m tn Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows any particular Wii games recommended to help aid recovery after a stroke, and is the Wii fit games / board of any benifit?
Avatar n tn My mother is recovering from her left sided stroke. She has a lot of fatigue and feels very restless. Is fatigue a normal after effect of stroke? I read that restlessness is associated with depression. Can this also be a neurological effect of stroke? Thank you.
Avatar n tn My Mother-in-Law suffered a Spontaneous Hemorragic Stroke on the Left Side at the Occipital Lobe...(whew!) approx 3 weeks ago. Her symptoms are unusual, so needless to say my research is bordering tedious/non-productive. I will keep it as brief as possible. She is Very fortunate that there is Not Any physical paralysis OR Any speech impediment. The 'bleed' has made a significant impact on her vision. There is also the added Anton's Syndrome. (No, a Dr.
Avatar f tn My dad had a stroke about 3 weeks ago and it was a massive stroke, The doctors said that it's a good chance he wouldn't talk or walk again. He had his stroke on the left side of his brain caused by blockage. He is now in rehab and the Nurses say he is doing pretty good, but everytime a doctor comes in it dampens my family hope. They say he might get worse or they seem to think he should be doing better than what he is by now.
Avatar f tn Its overwhelming and exhausting and can b SO frustrating bc then u point out what we HAVEN'T gained back or remembered etc. Games, like matching or UNO, simple games that don't require much forethought. I was in therapy for a year. I learned a lot but it was real life things that helped the most. Oh, one more thing that helped was aromatherapy. Basically, sensory enhancing thiings were all helpful to me. Except sense of touch. Hated that for some reason! Hope some of my rambling helped!
Avatar n tn My wife (50 years old) has just experienced her second stroke in three months; one affected the left side of her brain, the other affected the right (both considered "minor"). She is very emotional (weeping at the drop of a hat)and extremely fatigued. Is this normal? Will her condition improve over time? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Of course, no refined or added sugars -- only the natural sugar in fruit. Finally, do lots of research in books and on the internet about stroke recovery. Here are some books I have benefited from: Stronger After Stroke, Navigating the Complexities of Stroke, and Healing the Broken Brain: Leading Experts Answer 100 Questions about Stroke Recovery. Just remember to be patient, kind, loving, and keep researching.
Avatar n tn In my opinion, recovery from a stroke can be slow. As I understand it, speed of recovery may be gaged by the patients health and age prior to the stroke. You might want to ask your doctor if they would allow adding liquid amino acid sup. to their diet to start. Apparently, stroke victims have a hard time with the uptake of food proteins.
Avatar f tn Anyone functioning well enough to answer, to discuss your coping with stroke deficits that have remained for a year ago or longer. My stroke was more than 3.5 years ago and I still have some resentment about everything that I can't do. I would like to get a better attitude about it. But either way you are handling it, it would be helpful for me to hear about anyone else who still struggles with problems.

3197167 tn?1348972206 Less mag in our system means we run a higher risk of developing hyperactivity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis and other stress-related illnesses. And upping our mag intake is as easy and inexpensive as well....taking a How come? magnesium sulfate when dissolved in warm water is absorbed thru the skin. While taking mag supplements & adding mag rich foods to our diets may "seem" like the most obvious solution...

Avatar n tn You alsolutely need to find out what caused the stroke so the next one can be prevented. For a bleed survivor book there is A Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte-Taylor or Teaching Me to Run by Tommye K Mayer. For a clot survivor story there is Change in the Weather by Mark McEwan While there may be nothing the doctors can do, if she survives the survivor has lots that can be done to recover.
