Brain Stem Stroke
Hello,

My mom had a brainstem stroke clot just about 2 months ago since then she has had a gastric ulcer, sepsis from the hosptial overlooking her bladder infection, a punctured lung from a procedure to treat the sepsis----she was fairly ok until all these things totally set her back------she also had her left eye closed/ weakness on the right side of her body-----we are finally starting to see her left eye open but it does not track like her right eye---her cognitve function is not too good yet--she cannot talk or really respond---she is in therapy now and was told that she holds her own weight and is not dead weight when she is stood up and she does follow commands. Doctors really tell us nothing but that it will all come in time----is 2 months in too early to tell especially with the setbacks. Has anyone had a loved one with a brain stem stroke ?  I was told that most brain stem strokes are fatal and that finding her alive was a miracle. My mom is only 60 had this stroke as a result of a blood disorder and after having surgery and 40 stitches on her nose.
