She had acupuncture therapy, physical therapy, speed therapy, and friends come to talk, read play music, joking, and pray for her. after 5 year she now can eat, talk slowly and learning walking now. So please do your best for your mom , and God bless you and your mom.
Avatar f tn I have been praying using reiki healing, auric therapy. I found music therapy that I play for her 3 hours a day. She has pulmonary and physical therapy 3 times a day. She is breathing through a tracheostomy and eating through a gastric tube in her belly..sometimes it looks like she is swallowing saliva but I don't know if it is going to her belly or her lungs.. :S Is there anything else I can be doing? And does anyone know of anyone who has come out a coma after this long?
Avatar f tn I have been doing physical therapy and occupational therapy before I got out of the hospital in March 2010 and continued afterwards. I have also been doing strength training at the gym 3 to 4 days a week as well. The general concensus was that the stroke was brought on by my battle with terminal breast cancer for 2 years. I was declared cancer-free two weeks before the stroke occurred. I'm beginning to wonder if I can recover from this disasterous event and get my life back.

Avatar f tn Ask your therapists for therapies that do not require physical movement like mental imagery, mirror-box therapy, thermal therapy,music therapy, passive movement. If they do not know of these they are way behind in keeping up with research. Good luck.
Avatar m tn that is a testament to your love and support to him and all who love him too. Oh, Music helped my mom. Music got her to move her arms and feet! Maybe try that for your boyfriend....
Avatar m tn Does this mean no one has hearde of this therapy being used for stroke? There is a hybebaric oxygen facility in one hospital and there are two private facilities in my state that do this.
Avatar n tn And i dont know what other treatment or rehabilitation aside from PT, does Speech language therapy work? Please share me those who has same experience..thank you..
Avatar f tn Hello my sister age had a massive stroke 2 weeks ago, she opened her eyes after 6 days but she is unresponsive, she stares but has no response to anything, our voices, noise etc. Dr's have said they have very little hope that she will come back but we will never ever give up. She had a heart attack and stroke, and I do believe she is fighting as she is still with us when we were told she would not survive one day. We are continuing to talk to her and play her favorite music.
Avatar f tn Do you ever wish there was some sort of inhaler we could take when we feel an anxiety attack/symptoms coming on, just something to stop it in its tracks so we can think logically about the cause of our symptoms instead of fast forwarding to "I've got......heart problems, cancer, MS, about to have a stroke" I suppose I can only dream......

As numerous people on these sites have been told that they will not recover and immediatetly another survivor answers,"Don't listen to your doctor, he doesn't know anything, I was told I wouldn't recover and I am doing just fine." Read the book, Stronger after Stroke by Peter Levine and you will know more than any of the medical staff.
Avatar n tn My 49 year old brother had a massive left hemisphere stroke last August, leaving him paralyzed on the right side and he has made great progress with various modes of walking therapy. He now walks without any aids, albeit slowly and with difficulty. He does walk on a treadmill as part of his therapy and studies are showing that it's excellent for improving the gait to a more normal pattern.
Avatar m tn Do not accept the fact she cannot understand what you are saying. Get small earphones and allow her to listen to classical music. Music is very helpful in these situations. You have my sympathies.
Avatar f tn From what I have read classical music is best, but any music that your mother likes is also good. A study that was released in Feb 2008 showed that stoke victims that listened to music had a 60% better cognition rate while those that were read to only a 19%. Hope this helps.
640838 tn?1377454398 Im the same i some ways as certain music changes my moods but I also use music to calm me and manage anxiety - music can be very useful for relaxation therapy. I dont have the extreme reaction you get to loud music thank god as I am a serious iron maiden nut :) But nothing is better for calming me than classical, beethoven, mozart, bach and stravinsky seem to be perfect for times I am stressed.
Avatar f tn I had stroke at the age of 26. Do you know anyone that's happen to? My neurologist a Said they couldn't find any reason this should have happen to me.
Avatar m tn Sorry, but I had to have some opera therapy today to reduce my propensity for anger! Renata Tebaldi in Madame Butterfly w w tube com/watch?v=X_0eOqZPMmw&feature=rec-fresh Victoria de los Angeles in La Boheme w w tube com/watch?
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. It is very difficult to tell if he will be able to recover completely or not. There is no way of finding out for sure. Please continue with speech therapy. Hopefully he will respond to it. It requires patience and perseverance. Please be optimistic and do not give up. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Hi, 8 days ago my mother of 83 suffered a stroke & hear attack. She survived completely paralyzed and possibly in a coma. I brought her home yesterday with a fluid IV (not a central line) and cath. It appears that she may understand (or maybe just hear us talking) sometimes, as she makes grunting type sounds 1 -2 times a day. She has to be turned every 2 hours and I am trying to provide comfort for her last days. Any suggestions for a person in this condition?
Avatar m tn If I listened to everyone I would have given up hope a long time ago. I read a study that music therapy helps stroke survivors suffering with dysphagia make connections and speak more. I am telling you it works. All I did is put and ipod on her favorite radio station and she started mouthing the words in sync with the song. Your wifes peg can be reversed, the trach can be reversed. Once her meds are correct she will improve. This will be a constant fight for both of you.
Avatar f tn What is your opinion on oxygen therapy for stroke recovery? Has anyone had any experience with this?
Avatar n tn My 84 year old father had a second stroke about 10 weeks ago. He cannot move his left arm and leg, has lost his speech and cannot swallow. He was given the wrong feed in the PEG tube and got severe diarrhea (he has gluten intolerance). He became dehydrated and his blood got too thin due to coumadin. He has atrial fib. Now he is on another feed which seems to suit him better. My question is what is the prognosis for a patient in his condition?
