Stroke recovery speech

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery speech

stroke

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 I would like to hear from anyone with advice on STROKE REHABILITATION, especially for right sided paralysis (Left-Hemisphere Stroke)... In doing alot of reading it seems that speech is one of the things effected. I understand each stroke and stroke patient is different, but what could we expect in relation to time of recovery and how much recovery should we realistically expect? Any advice or experiences shared would be appreciated.

Avatar m tn 2014, in which she had a minor damage to her liver, so the Hospital stopped blood thinner, which caused her another stroke. but in recovery unit she suffered multiple strokes, loosing her language, speech and muscles(ability to walk). Ten months of grueling hospitalization and Nursing home stay, and now she has improved a lot in her physical strength-she can walk a little with support/walker/wheel chair.
Avatar m tn Hi, 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 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 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.
Avatar n tn t seem surprising especially that the recovery rate following using this drug is not interesting, at least for me. In stroke, there is something called "spontaneous recovery", meaning that patient will start to recover very fast during the first 3 months following the injury and then the recovery rate decrease with time (but there is always a recovery process going on).
Avatar m tn Sept 19th, went to ER. right side was numb, could not feel or move right side, (leg, arm, right side of face), speech was messed up, memory and comprehesion was messed. would guess it was a 60% lost. They did an MRI, said they didn't see any signs of a stroke. Said it was a complicated migrane. sent me home next day. put me in outpatient therapy to walk again. Dec 3rd. Same thing, but worse, took out 100%. said stroke didn't show on mri. put me rehab center for 5 weeks.
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 my father had a severe stroke 2 months back due to hyper tension and he had a major surgery immediately on time.his life was saved by the doctors but his voice was lost and right part became paralyzed.now his voice is back now but he can't utter any words properly,speech therapy is in progress.he is able to move his right leg and can bend it ,he can stand too for minute or a two but he can't walk. can anybody suggest any quick recovery steps to follow or any home remedy or diet???????
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 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 She is continuing physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy each 1 hr per week outpatient facility. Her speech is slow to return still and I am just concerned how much better she can get and when she will level off in getting better it has been a little over a month since the stroke ocurred and she spend almost 1 full week in a hospital before going to rehab? How can we help her continue to improve with such little outside therapy compared to her being in a rehab facility?
