Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum.

There is no faster way, to help the correct the brain damage that occurs due to a stroke. The time taken for recovery may take a few months to a few years, or the changes might be irreversible.

Symptoms and disability following a stroke vary greatly depending on factors such as the part of the brain affected, how quickly treatment was given, and the extent of the damage to the brain

Stroke rehabilitation is a very important part of recovery for stroke patients. It helps build your strength, coordination, endurance and confidence. In stroke rehabilitation, patients may work on how to move, talk, think and care for yourself. The goal of stroke rehabilitation is to help you learn how to do things that you did before the stroke.

Regular physiotherapy, stretching exercises, will be very important in the process to gain full recovery.

You may consult a neurologist and a physiotherapist for future interventions and treatment.

Stroke, right side paralyzed, brain clot, throat is also paralyz
Sir,
Last week my dad has got stroke and his right side is paralyzed. His throat is also paralyzed. He is unable to swallow the food. Right now the liquid is consumed through nose.

His report says ...
1) right side haemaephilia
2) acute infarct
3) few lacunar ischemic foci in the bilateral cerebral hemisphere
4) periventricular white matter ischemia
5) cerebral atrophy
6) Liver Cirrhosis

Please let me know what treatment is good for him and how soon he can recover.

Also what kind of bed is good for paralyzed patients ?

I am hemiplegic, and find that a donated used hospital bed has helped a lot, i needed the firm mattress for my back and being a single width bed reduces the work of getting situated.... I always have a side near me that I can use to pull myself over and roll, being able to sit withe the top lifted is my body comfy to work on my laptop and read a book. You should be careful with the following but having an electric blanket on low between my blankets has saved me in the winter, since my reduced circulation in my effected limbs made it impossible for my body to stat warm irregardless the number of layers I had on or the temp in the room. Hope this helps.... Be blessed. Deb
