A mild stroke with a lilltle blood clotting on the right side of the brain.

What could possibly happen to someone who just had a mild stroke with a little blood clotting on the right side of the brain? I´m a mother of two, seperated for a couple of years now. I just suffered from a mild stroke last week. I undergone all the test right after  i reached the ER. I had CT scanning.... but they sent me to MR scanning because they can´t really see if i had a blood clotting. I regained the feeling on my left side after 5 hours in the hospital... I was very thankful to God since I have two small girls I need to take good care for and I can´t do my obligations if I can´t move my left side.... So perhaps for the willingsness to stand on my foot and do the same thing again....ok perhaps not exactlly like before but at least I can move around the house. The  only thing I noticed is that I could easily get tired and very vulnerable with small talks...meaning ...got very sensitive which wasn´t the case before.
Question is.... is it possible for me to fully recovered from my stroke although, my left side is still a little heavy. Is it possible that the stroke strikes again...i´m always having that fear everytime i go to bed. Will a massage theraphy help me remove the slight heaviness on my left leg. Your full and honest answer will surelly help me go on....
thanks and God bless you all.

It never ceases to amaze me how people are diagnosed with stroke and then not provided with any information or anything!  

I would ask my family physician for an evaluation and treat order for Physical therapy to help with your left sided weakness...hopefully you have insurance to cover it. The fatigue after a stroke is common. patient's with a right sided (right brained stroke) can have problems with cognition, attention, though organization, interpeting higher level language skills, memory, etc., depending on the part of the brain affected.  Speak to your doctor about the other symptoms you may be having as well.

Tell your doctor about your heaviness, It is probably spasticity(they may call it tone). Don't take the Sargeant Schultz reply, ' I know nothing', keep after them until someone tells you specifically what can be done about it. You may have to go to numerous medical staff becuse you have entered the medical know-nothing zone.

Thanks for the response.  The last time I was at the doctor for check up, I told her about all the common issues and effects of the stroke to me. She assured me that it is normal because I´m still on schock after the stroke and of course the body gets weaker that before. So I´m trying to think more positive and relax my mind, though I sometimes could get very scared and very emotional that my heart pumps like hell. Anyway I´m on medication with blood thinner and something for cholesterol.
I´m tyring to do my own streching and exercise everyday. Ja, I get a lilttle help from my health insurances. So I quess the only thing I could do now is be strong and let my life go on. I leave everything in the hands of God.
thanks a lot. Godspeed.

I talked to my doctor about the heaviness on my left side and said that I need to do some streching. I´m also trying to go to Physical theraphy now and again or at least once a week. Because I have some back pain issues. I´m actually reading the picture clips your have sent in your fotos....to get more informations on how the mucles work on the upper shoulder... that´s very informative.
thanks again and hope you are feeling a little bit better today. Have a wonderful xmas with your loveones.
