Avatar f tn My 58 year old husband had a stroke last Sunday. We were let out of the hospital last night with no instructions, warnings or anything. Any sugestions? I am terrified. What next?
Avatar n tn Is there a website listing support groups for stoke victims? Does anyone know if there is a support group for stroke victims in the Owatonna or Faribault, Minnesota area? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Also please read "Post Thalamic Stroke Pain". There is a man on there less than 30 years old with horrible pain from his stroke. That's another consequence that I neglected to mention.
Avatar f tn Just a little encouragement for the families of the stroke victims so devastated here. I had a infarct in the temporal lobe in July, 2013. It left me with a grossly weakened left side, numbness and non-control of my left arm and leg plus a myriad of other minor complaints. I have memory issues and anger issues, as well as fatigue. I certainly am not the person I was pre-stroke. I had a lot of therapy for several months and looking back, I regained MUCH control in those months.
477009 tn?1210876873 My mom had a stroke one week ago today. She is almost 60 and this is her 2nd hemorragic stroke. The first she was released from hospital in less than a week. But this one was worse and at the basil Ganglia. She had a tube inserted in her brain to drain the blood and fluid due to the they could not do surgery. Every day has had a new result. She has spoken to us, answered questions correctly. Regained all motor skills in her left side.
167426 tn?1254086235 I am so sorry, it is always the poor and helpless, in a country like that, that do the suffering. Out of bad things sometimes good happens , lets hope the rest of the world notices this shame and is able to turn that ruling government around . The pictures I have seen are horrific and in my estimation senseless, I understand that what aid has been sent is being sold to the victims.
Avatar m tn I have found a few case reports that indicate that people with this type of stroke (Wallenbergs syndrome) can suffer from central sleep apnea and I was wondering if this is common knowledge amoung doctors that treat stroke victims. Is 24 hr pulse oximetry monitoring typically required following this type of stroke for 7 days ? Am I right to assume that inpatient care does not perform 24 hr pulse oximetry monitoring.
Avatar n tn I enjoy reading that research is leading to new breakthroughs to help victims of stroke. I have also read that although most recovery for stroke patients is seen within the first 6 months, that patients may recover for YEARS after stroke. I personally believe that a persons will and the support they receive greatly assist in their ability to recover. Researchers are also making breakthroughs to assist in the treatment of aphasis, dysphagia, paralysis etc.
Avatar m tn This is serious stuff and quite honestly, my symptoms have improved but not gone away. 10% of TIA victims go on to have a major stroke within 90 days (1 in 10), and you now have a 35 to 40% chance of having a major stroke. I don't want to scare you, but you need to press the issue with your Doctor.
Avatar n tn Yes a person can get a stroke from too much Morphine...I am a R.N. and work with stroke victims , Look up water shed strokes...
1831849 tn?1383228392 Wish they would have reported the numbers/instances of MSers and stroke victims that have this. And, how they identified the enzyme...i.e., was it through autopsy? And, if there is a way of knowing these percentages of MSs and alike that have this enzyme, etc. while we are alive and kickin.

Avatar n tn How can we help diabetic victims of Hurrican Katrina? This is a question many of us are asking. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) recognizes that the families of type 1 diabetics in areas devastated by Hurrican Katrina face special needs as they relocate to host cities. The letter below from Peter Van Etten, President and CEO of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, describes what JDRF has set up in the way of hurricane victim relief.
Avatar m tn I was just wondering how much support is out there for the younger stroke victims maybe in the format of groups or chatrooms or something.
Avatar f tn My family started calling the stroke a miracle because he recovered pretty fast, got a lot nicer, and his alcohol consumption was extremely low. I know that stroke victims should never drink alcohol because it raises the risk of another stroke, but one of his doctors said he could have a little bit of beer every now and then. He was sad all the time so, to make him happy, my mom started buying him tiny beers that he could have a couple times a week and she kept it super regulated.
230262 tn?1316645934 s undergone surgeries almost every day since the accident, sometimes several surgeries in same day. The community is devastated by this and the families of the victims are beyond devastated. These were 2 good kids, best friends.
Avatar m tn WOW...It is true that some stroke victims do not improve. It is the leading cause of disability.
