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 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 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 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 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 m tn anyway good luck and just walk whenever he can. 6 months is the window frame to recovery faster. After that recover does happen but it slow down.
Avatar m tn It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in? Will she regain her swallowing capacity and eye lid movements? Please advice us.
Avatar f tn 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 Depending on this, there can be complete recovery (time frame no one can predict) or partial recovery or permanent disability. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
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 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 n tn One study looking at long term changes in aphasia after stroke found that in a moderate size stroke, recovery of language function stabilized at 6 weeks and in severe strokes it stabilized at 10 weeks. Beyond this time frame, little change was noted in the patients language function. In summary, initial severity of the stroke was the only clinically relevant predictor of outcome. Another study looking at stroke rehab found that patients with moderate defecits benefited from focuses rehab.
Avatar n tn My question, if a stroke victim lives past a certain time frame their chances for survival with out another stroke are better? I was told that this time frame is 90 days but can find nothing on the web to answer this question.
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 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 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.
