Avatar f tn Besides controlling the bleeding, controlling high risk factors like diabetes and hypertension and physical therapy are needed for recovery from stroke. Ensure to see she takes her medication regularly and does physical therapy. Also, follow up with her doctor for monitoring, she will improve. Good luck with her recovery. Regards.
Avatar n tn Just have faith and keep helping her. My husband also had a hard time standing after his stroke. It took him almost two months to be able to walk again with assistance. Don't give up and God bless!
Avatar n tn Stroke recovery time I think will depend much on the age of patient. There may be good chances of recovery for patients less than 50 years of age but for patients more than 70 years of age chances may be nil. Physical and mental recovery both will be different too. Mental recovery will be more difficult than physical recovery. This is my feeling after goingthrough so many cases. I would like to know openion of others in the matter.

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 My dad had a stroke on 2/3/15 (65 yo male) - I received a call from HR at his work that he had been taken to the hospital. I believe at that time they had said he had a stroke...? Not sure. He stayed in ICU for almost two weeks and also got pnemonia. Feeding tube was put in... no ventilators. He is now at rehab and started speech and physical therapy. He had a intercranial hemmorage on the Left side of his brain. He has paralysis on right side (both arm and leg) and inability to speak..
Avatar n tn If i can make it so can others, that is my message to the world.I was also only 42 at that time and now i am 48.No one can make out that i have had a stroke.
Avatar m tn s been 60 days since she had the stroke. My question is does anyone know if someone with similar stroke recovered even partially and if so after how long. I know that every patient is different and their recovery won't be same. We are doing physio but all cases we heard so far are accident cases and they do seem to recover after a while but I never care across any patient like my mom who recovered.
Avatar f tn He was unconsoius when brought to the hospital. The doctors said that he suffered from stroke since he has a HIGH BLOOD. Diagnosis was hemorrhagic stroke and said it was fatal. MAy i know if he has the chance to recover considering the period of his coma. I sthere achance to recover if the the doctor says his brain is dead already. How come yesterday he responded to any pain when pinch. is this a good sign?
Avatar m tn , however with a caveat. Some stroke patients do appear to have 100 percent recovery. And many regain a great deal of their abilities. You could try a lot of ‘brain teasers’ to improve your memory functions. The brain can retain only a certain number of ‘facts’ and everything else is recalled based on its relationship with these facts.

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. To improve memory functions, you could try a lot of ‘brain teasers’.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear about your father, this is devastating for any family. It sounds like your father had a moderate size stroke which affected his language as well as some control of his right side. It has been a long time since his stroke and he has not been in great shape this whole type - fighting infections, etc. So he didn't really get a chance to recover to his full potential. Having said that, this type of stroke often results in significant disability.
