You can go through my wife's case and contact me for further details if you wish. The case is almost similar.
I'm sorry I am new here, how would I find it?
loss of swallowing is a symptom of stroke. it can correct itself over time, with the help of a speech and language therapist, who will assess the swallowing. regaining movement of the left side will also come in time, with the help of the physiotherapists and occupational therapists and good nursing care.
after stroke, people can make full recoveries, some may become independent again, some may need a little help at home etc. whilst some unfortunately do not get better.
a good website dedicated to stroke is the stroke association website. just google it.
after a stroke, people can become really tired. stroke takes its toll on the body. its a good sign that your loved one can start to move her limbs abit.
stroke patients tend to be put NBM (nil by mouth) until a swallowing assessment has been done, therefore the fluid will keep them hydrated. heparin is a drug used to stop clots forming or treat blood clots that have formed. a stroke is when a blood clot as gone to the brain causing an ischaemic stroke. there are two different types of strokes, ischaemic and haemorrhagic. haemorrhagic is a bleed in to the brain. your loved one needs good stroke rehabillitation, where there are doctors, nurses and other professionals there who specialise in stroke for the best outcome.
hope all goes well for you x
