Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery ontario


Avatar n tn The ENT Dr couldn't see any sign of a ear infection but the MRI scan did show the stroke in the Cerebellum so they sent me immediately back to the ER where I was admitted for the stroke. Unfortunately by that point no one could do anything to help with the actual stroke but I did get on a recovery plan and I'm doing pretty good so far.
Avatar n tn Where can I find more information on stroke with negative MRI? I have found one article by M. Alberts. Does anyone else have this situation? I was diagnosed as having a stroke 10 years ago.
Avatar n tn Then there was the recovery time. I did have fatigue and chest aches for awhile but was still able to do general everyday things. You do need to sit down and have a talk with your cardio EP. They need to explain it all more clearly (yes, they can tone it down so you'll understand what's happening) and tell you the options ahead of you.

Avatar n tn suddenly, he started to feel really bad, uncomfortable, all around very weird that mom took him to the hospital. Suddenly his left side of his face drooped and they thought he was having a major stroke but tests revealed that it was'nt. He was hospitalized and the next day he could hardly talk and his body was loosing its strength. The next morning he was put on life support, he lost all of his strength, and his tongue dropped and started to choke him.
184674 tn?1360864093 A big headliner in the current news this last week or so has been the story of Baby Joseph, a 13 month old with an undiagnosed neurodegenerative disorder who is on a ventilator (breathing tube) to stay alive in an Ontario hospital. Doctors at that hospital have claimed he is in a persistant vegetative state with no brain stem activity and advise Joseph's parents to remove his ventilator, which will undeniably cause his death within minutes by suffocation.
5986700 tn?1380794980 Definitely a show you want to miss! For reals peeps, there is a kick * ss flu going around up here in Ontario that had me convinced I was going to meet my maker and whoever found me was going to have flashbacks of Elvis' demise. For those of you who don't know....Elvis died on the can. Anyway after making some deals with the almighty, one of which I've already broken.....I'm feeling much better. Just wanted to say I'm still here at 66(days) and I haven't forgot how I was able to get here.
Avatar f tn When I had a hysterectomy in February, I was stuck in the recovery area on the surgical bed (hard as a rock), the only patient left there, until midnight, with one poor little nurse who wanted to go home.
Avatar n tn Well, I spent the morning getting the pantry and freezer restocked for my recovery time. My surgery isn't until the 17th but am expecting my last Visit from good old aunt flo any day and I can't leave the house during for fear of a nasty, embarrassing accident. I am having an ablation while I am under for the ovary so this may hopefully be my last "comfinement". So it had to be today. Tried to buy an electric blanket. Not in the spring, I guess.
Avatar n tn No loss of movement on limbs or muscle disfunction (somewhat typical of a stroke) but had loss my (left eye) peripheral vision as the result of the stroke. And I have had the stroke (at the age of 40) while I was knocked out, having the surgery done at the hospital! (No diabetes or blood clot or anything unusual that could have triggered the stroke!) I regret now having had the surgery, as I didn't want it done in first place! As a result, I cannot work (my usual job) or drive!

Avatar n tn my family physician told me that my PVC's may prevent treatment, depending on what the EKG shows at pre treatment check-up...But, I live in Ontario and I don't trust the health care system here (as most of you have heard me say hehe)....
Avatar f tn We are all different as to how long recovery will be....I also have EDS and I am a slow healer...I knew that going in and have been as patient as I can has not been easy....but one day at a time.... You may be at a point where you could just be monitored for this....and try a few different things to help with some of your current symptoms.
Avatar n tn This on top of the fact that I have 2 young children, a full time job, and a lot of bills! During the week that my husband had surgery and recovery, I didn't FEEL all that stressed, but about 3 weeks after we got him home from the hospital, all hell broke loose. I started having tingling in my hands, arms, legs(mostly lower), and feet, and around my mouth and my tongue.
Avatar n tn How much it hurts and recovery time is dependant on a few things including your own proclivity for healing. My 1st ablation was not too bad, except they did use 3 entry sites and I was fairly bruised up. The 2nd one was 8 hours long and they did so many burns they just had to eventually quit so as not to burn right through my heart. I had an excellent doc and his partner also joined him for 3 hours I'm told to try to chase down the spots.

Avatar f tn I went through countless little glass vacuum tubes in a week, each holding between 6-10 cc's. The reason I was searching was because I was wondering what others' recovery experiences have been. Thanks.
Avatar n tn My neurosurgeon said from my MRI results my surgery would require going in from the front and back and 3-4 month recovery. I continue to gain weight because on my inability to be more mobile and am wits end what to do next.
Avatar f tn Prior to the stent I had been extremely athletic. Even after coronary ischemic attacks which began just before the angioplasty, I passed stress test with flying colors. After the blockage was discovered thanks to a persistent PCP, and the stent inserted, I had chest pain afterwards. Was re-catheterized, all the major arteries were given a clean bill of health, but was placed on a beta blocker.
Avatar n tn My husband does not smoke, drink or use drugs and never has(how we ended up together is a mystery). Also through a stroke of luck I got pregnant with my first son during a time in my life that I was clean, so there where no problems with him at birth. The only problems we have with him is the horrible separation anxiety he suffers from because of my past behavior.

Avatar n tn hi, sorry that you had to join us here, but glad you found us. What did the neurologist say about polyneuropathy? recovery time? any instructions for follow-up? did you get any meds? Seriously think about going to a naturopath for extra health support, get someone to call and drive you there. Also, go see your medical doctor if you feel that you have worsened. I got the flu shots on Nov 5th and there have been days that I felt that I went "backwards" and then I would improve again.
