Stroke recovery time frame

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery time frame


Avatar m tn I want to give her every chance to recover before exploring the option of putting her down...but need to know a reasonable time frame to expect a recovery. Thanks!
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 m tn Thank you for your response. Your response is what I was thinking already. But, one more question for you. Yes, my doctor said that my "very small" cataract (prior to surgery) has grown very fast. What time frame is protocol for a cataract surgery to be preformed after a RD? From what I have been reading, that full recovery from RD surgery is close to 6 months..... I personally would like the cataract removed by 12/30 (my deductible has been met!) .
Avatar f tn I'm sorry for your loss. A m/c is very traumatic on your body. A d and c or a d and e is very envasive on your body it's more surgical than natural and the worst thing you can do is rush your recovery. Some of the reasons they tell you to wait a few cycles is because you run the risk of infection as well as it's not good to have your uterus contract at all. That is why dr's always say don't become dehydrated drink drink and rest and relax.
Avatar f tn We live in a small town so we do not have access to any sort of teaching hospital without a long trip that my dad is not really able to make right now. PLEASE will someone answer my question with their opinion, or the time frame they use for surgery in these instances. We just feel like we need input from a surgeon who is just reading the facts & what he/she would do in this instance as far as how long to wait for him to go into surgery.
Avatar m tn How are you? These are links about stroke recovery stories: I hope this helps. Don't give up hope. There is life after stroke. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn The doctors are recommending surgery on the right side first, since that is the side of the stroke. She was moved to acute rehab first to get stronger and to give a diagnosed UTI time to clear up. Is there a time frame for the most success for both cardioid surgeries. The surgeon said 1-2 weeks after the stroke and neurologist said it is elective and can be done in a few weeks after she gets stronger.
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 The presence of this severe an obstruction really predisposes him to have a stroke, and it is really very hard to predict the time frame. It is best that he receives maximal cholesterol lowering drugs (there is this study using maximum dose of Lipitor) that may reverse the obstruction. It is also best if other factors be controlled such as blood pressure or blood sugar problems if he has any. Regards and God bless.
976897 tn?1379167602 It is true that for the initial months the recovery is very fast and slows down a bit but recovery after a Stroke may continue for a long time and a patient may recover well if he/she receives proper nutrition, physiotherapy and good moral support. Rehabilitation phase is very important in the recovery of a Stroke patient. When a patient is no longer acutely ill after a stroke, the healthcare staff focuses on maximizing the patient's functional abilities.
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 n tn I wouldn't think there is a time frame. There are lots of large arteries which feed up to the face/brain. As you can see from this pic there are 2 carotid arteries on each side of the neck, which meet up with other artery feeds in the circle of willis. May I ask if you are having stenting or endarterectomy?
Avatar f tn he has lost so much weight he is skin and bones itchy skin all the time food does not process, always tired, but cant sleep unless he is passed out some swelling in stomach and feet extreme swelling, enlarged veins in his arms and legs, high blood pressure extreme mood swings, angry for no reason and he refuses to go to the doctors or get help so i am left to just wait and watch. anybody with any knowledge of a time frame of how long he can go on like this please reply.
Avatar f tn When is everybody starting there detox time? I mean: do you start it at the time of last use or start the time when your last pill/use has worn off?
1821865 tn?1317522031 My mother had a stroke back on 11/15/2012 at work. She had suffered a schemic stroke on her right side which paralyze her left side completely. She was given tpa a week later she had a cranial bleed. They removed her right skull a few days later she had a second stroke where she lost her ability of speaking. Since she has not said a word. Now she is at a nursing home rehab where she makes 5 steps behind then forward now the place told us they are going to drop her because she is not improving.
Avatar m tn My 60 year old mother is recovering from her 3rd stroke . This current stroke was a massive one & she can not Talk or Walk or respond to commands... Her right side is paralyzed. All she can do at the moment is open her eyes and look to the Left and stare. The Doctors told me that this is how she might be for the rest of her life. Im scared to death because she is so young and i cant picture my life without her in it .
Avatar m tn Hi callingallangels, My guess is that a TIA recovery period has some common characteristics akin to a major stroke recovery process. Two months ago, I suffered a TIA out of the blue. Three days in the hospital with all the necessary tests (MRI, CT-scan, catorids, etc.) showed no pre-existing conditions. But the aftermath of the TIA has been an up and down experience, largely dependent on whether I've had a good night of sleep.
Avatar n tn Do you mean a physical trauma to someone that is recovering from a stroke? Or memory loss due to a stroke? Strokes can definitely cause memory loss. If trauma after a stroke, what kind? Trauma to the head? How long ago was the stroke? I know that the doctors and therapists were very worried about setbacks if my husband were to fall or hit his head by banging into something in the first few months after his stroke.
