My mom had a severe hemorraghic (spelling?) right-sided stroke 4 months ago. For the most part, has left-side paralysis showing only slight movement in left leg when asked. Due to severity of stroke, brain stem shifted. Two questions - tone in right leg seems to be getting worse. We are hoping botox will help. Any experience with this? Also, we are told spatial awareness has been affected and cannot be relearned or come back. This, we are told, is needed for any kind of significant recovery - walking,movement in bed, eating on her own without cues etc. She has received therapy over the months but it has been interrupted due to infections. Her neurologist tells us it doesn't matter how much therapy she receives, she will never make significant gains. Please comment. She is 73 years old. Prior to stroke - independent and healthy.
