MY MOM HAD A MINOR STROKE A FEW DAYS AGO. HER SPEACH WAS AFFECTED AND SHE REALLY COULD NOT MOVE. IT WAS HER RIGHT SIDE THAT WAS THE MAIN PROBLEM. SHE CAN MOVE NOW AND HER SPEACH IS BETTER BUT NOT 100%. I SPOKE TO A NEUROLOGIST AND HE SAID THAT IT CAN TAKE TIME TO RECOVER. THE PROCESS CAN BE SLOW. HE ALSO SAID THAT THE SPEACH CAN TAKE A FEW MONTHS TO GET BACK TO 90%. I AM REALLY SCARED NOW TO CAUSE MY MOM IS AN ALCOHOLIC AND SHE WENT TO MY AUNTS HOUSE AND I KNOW SHE WILL LET HER DRINK AND SMOKE. WHEN SHE HAD THE STROKE THE DR DID NOT KNOW IF SHE WOULD BE PARALYZED. I THOUGHT I LOST HER. I KNOW THE STRESS AND FEAR. IF YOU NEED TO TALK I AM HERE FOR YOU.MY MOM IS ONLY 57 ALSO.

Hi. my mom went in last friday also. i would see if there is a test they can do to see if there is any more info on what the stroke may have caused. my mom had a test after the stroke called (spelling?) corroted ultrasound. she went in and found 3 clots and a few days ago she had the stroke. i dont know if this test is given to everyone who had a stroke. i would maybe ask the dr what affects he thinks is going to be the outcome from the stroke and how long till she starts to improve. i was told that it can be a slow process. i also get scared that my mom will do more damage to her because i know she will smoke and drink. if you need to talk im here. ill say a prayer for her.

Stroke Prognosis
I'm needing some information/advice on strokes.
My Grandmother, who is 81, had a stroke at the beginning of July. She is now in a nursing home where she has been for a week. She is receiving occupational and physical therapy but they don't have a speech therapist yet.
She is paralyzed on her right side and has a feeding tube in her stomach.
She gets frustrated when we don't understand what she's trying to say (she can only moan) but does seem to understand when we talk to her or ask questions; she responds by shaking her head yes or no. This week was the first time I saw any kind of facial expression (she was trying to smile when I visited with my children).
I'm wondering how good her prognosis is and what can be done to help with speech until she starts therapy.

WHEN MY MOM HAD A STROKE, ONE OF THE DR'S SAID THAT RECOVERY COULD TAKE TIME AND BE A SLOW PROCESS. SHE ALSO HAD SOME TESTING DONE TO SEE IF THERE WAS ANY OTHER DAMAGE TO HER AFTER THE STROKE. THERAPY HELPED HER AS WELL. I WOULD TALK TO HER DR AND ASK HOW HER PROGRESS IS SIENCE THE STROKE.

My 21 year old had a stroke two months ago. What a shock. Her symptons were about the same. loss of right side of body. loss of speech and facial muscles on right side. They started working with her the day after her stroke for her facial muscles and speech. Her speech is 95% better now. They stressed to us how important it is to get started with therapies right away. She had therapy everyday when she was in ICU then she went onto in patient rebah where she had 6 days a week for three weeks. She is now in out patient therapy 3 times a week. She has speech, occupational and physical. They told us to give recovery time one year.

My great grandma just had a stroke. I would say to just really pray for your mother.I know that it reeeeally helps when you sit with her and just read the Bible out loud. You should seriosly do this. Because the Bible and Jesus touches the inner soul like nothing else. And it would do much good for her. God bless you to go through all of this!!

I've been reading some studies recently correlating the number of circulating stem cells one has in their body with various health conditions including stroke prevention and recovery. Some suggest that there are any of a number of dietary and lifestyle factors which directly impact the number of stem cells circulating doing their thing. I've actually also heard some positive reports about natural supplement like healingstemcells [dot] com. Hope that helps.

My mother had a stroke at age 42, 17 years ago. I was 11 at the time. What I can tell you is that a 2nd opinion is important as my mother was told she would never walk again and yet was able to walk 100m without support within a year. Her stroke was very severe and she was close to death and in a coma for 6 months. We only knew she could hear us becuase she was able to squeeze her hand in response to questions. Try not gauge recovery time on anything but progress where you are, as the brain is a complicated piece of machinery. Take hope in the fact that support can produce wonderful effects and make sure you read up on strokes and how best to work through problems together. It will not be easy but people can accomplish increadible things when they have hope.
all the best to you all

help with my mum
my Mum had her first three mini stroke at 38 and I will 10 at the time. She has a another one three weeks ago and is now home. She had physio, spreech and occupaional therpy everyday at the hospital. She pushed herself and she final got home after three weeks. She is home now, but she has seemed to stop progressing. She has help three times a day, but the physio etc has stopped. I have contacted the doctors to start this up again, I just dont want her to go backward. Her memory isnt as good as it was and I think it is because she isnt be challenged and is bored.

She went out today across to her friends, but I am scare for her. I am getting stressed and I find it so hard to be patient with her. I just want her to get better. How do I help her and stay calm
