flu like symptoms after a stroke

Hello,
My mom had a brain stem stroke 3 months ago. She is making progress and doing much better though our family would like to ask a few questions.
Our mom (Suzanne) can not swallow so needless to say she can not eat.
If anyone has any information on success with relearning to swallow after a stroke would be great.
Our mom also just told us yesterday that ever since her stroke she says she always feels like she has a flu.
Weak, a little dizzy, and no strength.
Are these symptoms common after a stroke? And the symptoms lasting everyday for the last three months?
If anyone can give us answers, suggestions, or comments that would be wonderful!!

Sorry to hear about your mom. I had a massive stroke 2 yrs ago and my doctors told me it would take some time to get my energy back...apparently your brain kind of uses all of your energy to try to repair itself. Even though it's been a couple of years, I still don't have the stamina I used to have....I can go for a while, but when I hit the wall, I have to rest, sometimes frustrating (I have a 3yr old), but at least I'm still here! As for the swallowing, I don't know anything else to do besides physical therapy.
