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 My best friend had a massive stroke on Jan.16/09. As of Jan 18/09 she has been in a coma. She is 51 years old and has been in fairly good health. She has always been a fighter. The Drs. are only giving her less then 5% chance of pulling out of it. Anyone that knows the same situation with any words of encouragement would help. Right now we are helpless, just alot of prayers.

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.

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.
163305 tn?1333668571 Santa Rosa’s Care by Design and AbsoluteXtracts are donating $20,000 worth of medical marijuana products to the victims of the Valley Fire who have existing medical prescriptions to use cannabis.

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 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.
Avatar m tn WOW...It is true that some stroke victims do not improve. It is the leading cause of disability.
Avatar n tn Is there a surgery for victims after a stroke that have double victims? Or what are there options beyond wearing a patch over there eyes?

Avatar m tn It does seem, as you are indicating, that if things are done now when he is so young, they can have an outward positive effect maybe more than for older stroke victims. I think in your shoes, I would reach out (or have your mom do so) to the doctor who treated your brother for stroke, and ask him about rehabilitation specialists who work with kids that have had strokes. See if you can get a referral, and go to the appointments, and learn what they are doing.
