Avatar m tn Hi d- My father had a stroke in April. One of the most helpful things we did for him was acupuncture. In China apparently when you have a stroke you go to a acupuncture hospital. Other things helped, including physical, occupational and speech therapy.
Avatar n tn Find out what rehabilitation is available to you through the hospital first And learn from the experience of others but remember no two stroke patients are the same so individualise your recovery program to suit you and your needs so start reading and researching right NOW Some therapies that i am looking into that 'may' assist include : hyperbaric oxygen therapy acupuncture dietary supplementation feldenkrais constraint induced therapy vasa home therapy mirror box therapy nuerofeedback/ neu
Avatar n tn My Dad suffered a stroke and it appeared tho only area affected was his speech. Within 3 days, he basically regained his speech and that lasted for 16 days. Needless to say we were hopefully for a full recovery. However after that he speech seemed to regress back to how it was the day after the stroke. We admittedly took him back to the neurologist thinking this was very serious to go from being to talk for 2 weeks after the stroke to losing his abilitly to speech.
Avatar m tn HI there, My father lost his speech due to a stroke too and would like to find out how your mum's mum is doing now? What's the speech recovery like? Thanks!
Avatar f tn My husband had a stroke 3 weeks ago which affected his speech. When it first happened he couldn't speak but after about 15 minutes he was able to say single words slowly. He has made a good recovery and his speech therapist has discharged him. I am just a bit concerned because he seems to have good and bad days. Sometimes he struggles to start a sentence but once he gets going things improve. Some days he can't say the odd simple word an example being Corfu.
Avatar n tn My Dad also had a stroke not Hemm. though about 1 1/2 years ago and after a few month of speech he refused to go anymore.
Avatar m tn Hi, my dad suffered a stroke 3 months. He is 73 yrs old and was alcoholic and heavy smoker and had industrial deafness. He has lost his speech though now he starts speaking though you can only understand possibly 1 word out 20. He has loss use of his right side bodily functions and is incontinent. He cant even sit in a wheelchair and is bed ridden. What can i do and what is best case scenario???
Avatar n tn Hi, Sorry to hear about your dad :( Recovery from stroke is slow. Your whole frame of reference changes, whay would seem insignificant changes to others become huge milestones. Is he getting therapy? Speech therapists can help with the swallowing. I don't know anything about the foods, sorry. Encourage him to keep doing his exercises & doing as much for himself as he can & lots of rest - his brain needs time to heal.
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 n tn However alternate therapies like acupressure and acupuncture have been known to benefit patients with stroke. There is a recent study which suggests that acupuncture can speed up recovery in patients with stroke. http://www.acupuncturetoday.com/archives2005/apr/04strokes.html It is worth a try. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Now he wants to quit the speech therapy. I wonder if additional recovery could take place after 6 months time.
478387 tn?1210765908 I suffered a stroke after dissecting my carotid. My carotid was not operated on and closed 100%. My doc says it is safer for me to leave it alone. A partially opened artery is a great risk for strokes. You want 100% open or 100% closed. He explained to me that the other arteries in the brain can supply the brain with enough blood. I think the operation risk outweighs the gain. I know that it can be a little hard to accept. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn My father recently suffered a stroke about a month ago. One week after the stroke, he started gaining movement, speech and swallowing back. He was doing so well that he was placed into rehab, and was able to walk a bit with a walker, shower, eat and talk. Then a few days after, he started regressing, and is now bed ridden. He lost his ability to swallow, can't speak, or walk. The feeding tube was not working, so he has been put back on IV fluids....
Avatar n tn I enjoy reading that research is leading to new breakthroughs to help victims of stroke. I have also read that although most recovery for stroke patients is seen within the first 6 months, that patients may recover for YEARS after stroke. I personally believe that a persons will and the support they receive greatly assist in their ability to recover. Researchers are also making breakthroughs to assist in the treatment of aphasis, dysphagia, paralysis etc.
1041487 tn?1256331319 Who do I work with if depression takes hold? What books on stroke recovery do you recommend? What stroke related magazines do you recommend? What internet sites do you recommend about stroke? There are at least 15 stroke forums out there. If they are not willing to answer these questions or do not know anything. Time to find another site.
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. For most stroke patients, the rehabilitation process includes nursing, occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), therapeutic recreation (TR) and speech therapy (or speech language therapy, SLP).
Avatar n tn Who do I work with if depression takes hold? What books on stroke recovery do you recommend? What internet sites/forums do you consider best for stroke patients? There are at least 15 out there. Please describe the area using pictures/scans that were affected by the stroke. What functions would normally be affected by a stroke in that area? How large is the penumbra? If you say that the strokee will not recover, what is the clinical reason behind that diagnosis?
Avatar n tn My sister had a brain aneurysm on 11/24/04. She had a 2% chance of coming thru surgery, but came thru & is recovering in a nursing home. She is 48 yrs. old. With therapy, her motor skills & speech are coming back, but only her long-term memory seems to be intact--she remembers everything from the past but nothing as far as day-to-day or minute-to-minute. She also tells stories about things that never happened.
Avatar m tn Hi my grandma had a stroke Saturday. We are not sure when she had it but we think it was 18hrs before we found her. She had scans done on her brain and they said she had a massive stroke and brain bleed. When we found her she was breathing on her own and had a heart beat but wasn't responsive, she is still like that today. The doctors say she has less than 5% chance of surviving and not to revive her if she has a heart attack as she will end up with no quality of life.
Avatar n tn Progress can continue years after the stroke. Passively waiting for stroke recovery will not accomplish anything. Your parents are now enablers of his passivity. Read Peter Levines blog on cavemen and strokes. Good luck.
Avatar n tn My mom just suffered a 'massive' hemorragic stroke three days ago. The doctors are saying that her speech and speech recognition will be affected as well as her right side. She is still in a neuro ICU on a vent and feeding tube. She had to have emergency surgery two days ago to relieve swelling. They removed the clot but left the brain tissue. She is recovering better than expected from the surgery meaning that she is alive but she has yet to open her eyes or follow commands.
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 As far as I 'm concerned, I'm afraid that modern medicine can do little in stroke recovery, so I suggest you can take some alternative medicine. Meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis, reflexology, herbalmedicine, and so on are all alternative medicine, and I think there must be one can help you. My friend's mother caught stroke and we are looking for any treatment to help her. I think Traditional Chinese Medicine should be my best choice.
