Common Questions and Answers about Stroke recovery women


Avatar n tn She also tells stories about things that never happened. What is her prognosis for recovery in this area--the neurologist says that there is no brain damage. Is this something that just takes time? Thank you in advance for your reply.
Avatar n tn Everyone please remember, they can hear you and need to be kept informed with what is going on not just with their recovery, but also family issues, the weather, success stories about stroke recovery etc. Strokes cause extreme depression so it's good to constantly reinforce that they are not fighting alone and that you are striving to help them improve. We have combined an arsenal to fight for my father's recovery. Prayer, faith, hope, love, energy healing, research etc.
Avatar m tn if anyone has any sudgestion of treatments or people that have made any break throughs in stroke recovery, or has been told the same. thank you for taking the time to read this. basically we looking for hope.
Avatar n tn The ENT Dr couldn't see any sign of a ear infection but the MRI scan did show the stroke in the Cerebellum so they sent me immediately back to the ER where I was admitted for the stroke. Unfortunately by that point no one could do anything to help with the actual stroke but I did get on a recovery plan and I'm doing pretty good so far.
Avatar n tn But at 72 and without other significant medical complications, heart bypass today has become fairly routine, and the recovery rates are very high. These major illnesses are very scary, for family members as well as the patient. Please listen to the experts. They can help your mother understand the risks and benefits of any treatment they might recommend.
Avatar n tn Hi, My mother had a brain stroke she is 66. she was strong women and independent. Now she can't breathe by her own, eat, walk, talk, we don't even know her capability. The doctor is saying they can not do much for her. It happen this summer. Do you think there's hope for my mother? I really try to believe one day she's going to breathe again or a doctor can help her to regain at least 85% of her capability.I will do anything for my mom to come back to us.
764912 tn?1322715443 Hey all, Well I am still at Mayo clinic in MN. They did confirm a stroke and did a TEE--to look at my heart. Today I have neuropsych testing due to memory and change in personality issues. Then Tues I see my Neurologist again. I sure hope we get some road to take....thinking of you all.
Avatar n tn My stroke happened at 29! What kind of stroke did you have? where are your neurologists? Are you back to "normal?
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm a 21 yr old female who had a iscemic stroke 3 months ago caused by my pill. I'm almost back to normal now living my life which I was before the stroke. I'm on clopidagrel to thin my blood which I need to be on forever. I want to hear from anyone in the same age bracket - to talk to.
Avatar n tn I surrvived a stroke almost 6yrs. ago...2 weeks after my son was born, I was 29 at the time. I am now 35 and about 3mos. pregnant. It was not an easy decision, but I have been stable all this time and the docs said that I should be fine. There is one other person who I write to who had 2 more babies after having her stroke. It definitely helps to have to her to talk to....It's not an easy decision!
Avatar n tn Hi I am 21yrs old and recently suffered a (clot) stroke (3 months ago). I went in to see my Dr today and he said I can try for a baby in the new year. Please, I would really like to hear from everyone who had a baby post stroke, good or bad.
299260 tn?1304219705 I got to tell ya that when I was in the recovery room right after the LAP and when the doc came in to tell me that we had to try again later, I was so angry/sad, I was in so much pain, that I said to myself, "this is it no more, I won't get to experience a pregnancy, I give up"...of course I said that then, but now I am still trying and moving foward...
Avatar n tn Becomes severely disoriented, confused, detached, and virtually catatonic with High BP onset (full recovery in approx 1hr after Normodyne Trandate push). Onset seems to be having a lower threshold (@170/110 this PM) as time continues. Experiencing on-going muscle weakness, imbalance, and numbness on one side (Left side of RH person). CT = Neg, MRI = Neg, Ultrasound = 0-30% of carotid, EEG = Norm, Electro-cardio = Norm, Chem7 = Norm, LP CSF = Neg/Norm. No HX in family of HBP.
Avatar n tn One approach is your doctors' approach of trying aspirin, and as long as you do not have a recurrence of stroke or mini-stroke, to just leave you on the aspirin. If you do have a recurrence, the next step would be to add another blood thinner in addition to aspirin. This is a sensible, common sense approach that has been used for many years. The only problem with this is that if the next stroke is a large one, it could leave you with significant disability, or worse.
Avatar m tn I m dignosed with post stroke syndrome/central pain syndrome recently. Suffering both post stroke pain and chronic fibromyalgia at the same time that has made my life miserable. I get daily migraine tension type headaches, burning pricking numbness pain, stiffness and bad muscle spasms. Amitriptyline, cymbalta, baclofen gave me bad side effects. I m hoping someone can share their success with other drugs. I m willing to give it a try. Thks in advance!
1048694 tn?1253648151 It's been a little over a year and a half. I had a pretty quick recovery. I had been on a birth control pill for 5 years before the stroke and am now not allowed to go back on. Post-stroke my metabolism slowed down and I gained about 10 lbs. I also did not menstruate for about a year, which my gyno said was normal after my body experienced such a traumatic event.
Avatar f tn Of course, no refined or added sugars -- only the natural sugar in fruit. Finally, do lots of research in books and on the internet about stroke recovery. Here are some books I have benefited from: Stronger After Stroke, Navigating the Complexities of Stroke, and Healing the Broken Brain: Leading Experts Answer 100 Questions about Stroke Recovery. Just remember to be patient, kind, loving, and keep researching.
Avatar f tn I'm a 47 year old male that had sepsis and multi-organ failure. I'm a trainer and am having a hard time with this slow recovery...I was in the ER Dec. 12 and out Dec 24, 2009. When I entered the ER, my bp was 60/40, hr 184 and a fever of 104.5. They thought that I wouldn't make it. So glad that I did! It is now Feb 16, 2010. Any idea what kind of recovery time I should expect? I feel that that I am 50 plus % of my old self right now...please advise. Thank you!
Avatar n tn I've read that the angiogram through the wrist has a faster recovery period than the groin one. I've had four via the groin. If all goes well you will leave the hospital the same day as the test. Have the doctors suggested what they expect to find and how they will treat it? From my experience I would delay making a decision on future treatment after the angiogram so you can carefully weight the pros and cons. I was too hasty to make a decision.
Avatar n tn I had a massive stroke in July 2006 due to vertebral artery dissection. Why I had the dissection in the first place I do not know. By the grace of God, alot of therapy and great motivation (our 3yr old son!) I am doing well despite the loss of most of my cerebellum. I am currently 30 years old. Prior to my stroke we had a molar pregnacy and a miscarriage. I am still on Plavix because of a pseudoaneursym that is still there but has gotten smaller.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
