Stroke recovery vision

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery vision

stroke

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.
877060 tn?1240204020 I'M A RECENT STROKE SURVIVOR (01/09) AND AM NOW IN THE REHAB AND RECOVERY PROCESS. I SUFFERED AN ACUTE STROKE OF THE CEREBELLUM THAT ALSO AFFECTED MY BRAIN STEM AND RIGHT HEMISPHERE. I'M 42 YEARS OLD AND DID NOT HAVE ANY OF THE COMMON HEALTH ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH A STROKE (MY WEIGHT, BLOOD SUGAR, NEVER TOOK BIRTH CONTROL, BP WAS NORMAL, ETC). I WAS DIAGNOSED AS HAVING Antiphospholipid syndrome.
Avatar n tn my aunt got an stroke and she had an excellent recovery. Unfortunately after a while she started having visual problems such as double vision. She also complained about not being able to move her right eye to see the floor or to see the walls. What nerve or nerves might have been affected by the stroke? why? .
Avatar n tn My question is there any way possible (surgery, etc.) that my mother can get her peripheral vision back after a hemorraghic stroke? I would really appreciate a sincere, in-depth response from someone of medical status. Thank you very much.

Avatar n tn Im 47 yrs old and I had a stroke on june 30th....thankfully I only lost the vision in my right eye. It is now only the peripheral vision that is gone The Dr's have tested me for everything and can't determine why I had the stroke . I understand that it is sometimes difficult to tell the cause. I'm very healthy except for the stroke so they are concerned about the cause. I'm a little bit more concerned at the moment about recovering my eyesight.

10996785 tn?1432812977 to come on this forum to let you all know. Last Friday morning I suffered a small stroke while siting at this very same cpu desk. I have a slight vision setback along with a terrible headache with bad dizziness. I've tried so very hard to do the right thing only to be bit on my butt several times now. My anxiety level is through the roof. I cannot see how I will get through this. Thanks to all of you for the support.
Avatar n tn I am 49 yrs old and had a brain stem stroke on June 20, 2007. I am left with dizziness which leaves me walking with a walker. I also have left field visual loss in both eyes, and extreme headaches. Are these normal leftover symptoms? All the tests they gave me showed 2 strokes had happened within 3 wks. If anyone else has these symptoms please let me know. I am currently receiving physical therapy for the dizziness. My signs of my strokes was vertigo and throwing up.
Avatar f tn My wonderful, yound 74 year old mom, recently had a stroke. She has memory loss, vision deplecion, and trouble walking and eating. Presently in rehab. Could her depression from all of these symptoms be causing the interfearance of recovery?? She has also lost 25 lbs., and I'm so worried..
Avatar n tn Posted By Charles Puckett on December 27, 1997 at 07:41:44: On 10/10 of this year, my wife (47 yrs old) suffered a deep vein hemmoragic stroke located above her right ear which affected both the frontal lobe and parietal lobe. She was transferred to the Hershey Medical Center's Rehab hospital about 11/16. Suprising everyone, she has responded to rehab well. They initially thought she'd not be much more than an intelligent veggie but she's just blossomed.
368646 tn?1208393887 ) I have herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1, cold sores on lip) and, even though dormant at the time of stroke, I was wondering if this is playing a factor in my slow recovery? It appears that there is a lot of inflammation on the affected side. I'm trying to convince my Neurologist to prescribe a cortisteroid. Any advice or suggestions?
Avatar n tn 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. After our searching, oral pellet and massage will improve the condition.
Avatar f tn It has been a month now since I presented with stroke like symptoms but I was no diganosed with a stroke. Clear MRI and CT scans but those were done as soon as I got to the hospital. I am still having issues with dizziness and stuttering and twitching but was in the clear for 3 weeks until wed evening. I guess I kind of had a relapse I am doing better but still not feeling great, I have also had a major headache for over a week now.
Avatar n tn He had no previous symptoms of a stroke. The only side effect was double vision. It has been almost two weeks and he still sees double. Are there any other options available besides a patch and prism glasses? Is there a surgery procedure available, or is he just suppose to go on with his life with a patch on his eye, like the nurosurgeon told us?
Avatar n tn Following a stroke on March 13 1998, I have largely recovered but am left with no upper field of vision. This appears to be rare. Any suggestions welcomed. = Thanks for the question. It is difficult to fully comment on your situation given the very sparce description of your visual loss in the message. For instance, does it affect both eyes, or just one the eyes. If the problem is found in only one of the eyes, it is likely that the problem was actually in the eye itself.
Avatar m tn First of all, I hope you and your wife an excellent recovery. You want a good recovery story? Well, here's one. My husband is truly a walking miracle. He had a hemorrhagic stroke in July 2007. Three of his doctors told me they didn't expect him to make it. My husband is walking, talking, eating, taking care of himself and doesn't need anyone with him all day. He had a very large bleed...12cm...which is considered massive.
Avatar n tn Do You recommend I wait, or is there any other drug or treatment available that could help with the vision loss after stroke? I appreciate your answers!
Avatar m tn As the immediate swelling and inflammation subside, she should regain some vision. Some stroke patients do appear to have 100 percent recovery. And many regain a great deal of their abilities. If the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Continue with her medications and physical therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Hi please help.My friend who's just 29 had brain hemorrhage due to high B.P 2month ago,a week later he recovered but was having blurred vision.two days later he again had a massive stroke after which he is unable to see from both eyes & he is in state of shock so whenever we ask him something he is not able to answer dat & repeat the same words.doctor's say's it will take about 8-9 month for his recovery but not so sure about it.
Avatar n tn See my note above about length of time of recovery. He may get some vision back with time. I don't know of therapies for eye-sight loss due to stroke. Our eye doctors are saying there is nothing to be done for our mother. Perhaps someone else can help. Based on what I know about recovery from other stroke related disorders, providing visual stimulation that is not too uncomfortable may be the best for recovering some vision.
Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
