Ischemic Stroke - My 78 year old mother had a stroke Friday she still cant speak what treatment?
Added 19 Oct 2011:
She has a irregular heart beat and had to stop Padaxa for a week to get another bleeding issue under control, right when they was fixing to start her back on it the strok happened and now she cant talk. She still in the hospital and I am wondering if anyone can point me to how I can help my mother speak and eat correctly again.
The doctor's will know exactly what to do. Discuss your concerns with them and they'll be able to answer your questions.
My father in law, suffered a massive stroke in Nov. For the 4 days, he did not speak, responds, move etc. The doctors told us that he would not improve. 8 hours after that he opened his eyes and spoke. 2 more weeks followed not much improvement in moving his left side or his right side for that matter. Doctors told us that he would never be able to move his left arm or leg again or eat on his own again. Fast forward to today. He is talking , eating, and walking with assistance. Listen to the doctors of course but dont give up hope :)
Lack of voice communication is not as rare as some want to think, must be addressed soon as possible... Wood be strongly advised to publish the cause, especially in younger females, as the condition could be marketed as being extremely useful.
