My 55 year o,d son had a stroke a week ago. He got to hospital quickly, it affected. The left. Side, left face, slurred speech, ..now getting a bit better, left arm, more movement now, left leg, can walk a few steps with physics telling him how to place his leg..each stroke.
He has had loads of scans including MRI as they suspected piss Fabry stroke because of his age ..so far the MRI does not indicate this but more investigations ongoing,
Apparently there was a clot in the cartirod artery, but no bleed as he got blood thinning medication in time.
He has height blood pressure and cholestral and has been taking medication .
They are thinking to get him into a rehab for physio if there is a vacancy...
So he seem to br progressing very well and cheerful , I am interested to know more about how long it takes to safely walk again as I am really grateful if he does get the physio referrral ..
Does the fact that there is improvement in speech and arm mean the leg will improve at that speed or is that a different issue,,,...he is doing the excercises as given while he is still in hospital just now.
Of course I realise that the physio will have all the comments but would love to read any of your experiences .. he lives just in lodgings that may not allow adaptable facilities if they are considered to be necesssary...
Thank you for reading
