A year and a half ago, my 74 year old husband had a bleeding stroke. He was in the hospital for 6 weeks. He has aphasia, and has weakness on the right side.
I am so confused on what to expect in the future and what is normal, and what isn't on how he feels. He does get tired alot still. He can take short walks with me... sometimes he looks confused and has a look of pain on his face and when I ask him if he is ok..he says yeah. His right side seems to be getting a little weaker then what it was. I worry about more strokes. They did say he also has build up in his cororid arteries also but it is not enough to do surgery yet. I worry everyday about him having another stroke. He seems to understand most of what I am saying and can get in some words and short sentences sometimes. I just need someone to talk to that knows what to expect. I know every patient is different. I appreciate any input.
