TIA aftercare for several weeks
My husband suffered a small stroke on Sunday that was like nothing that I could have ever expected-he asked to go to the hospital, and we went immediately.
He became violent and had to be sedated for two days. Suffered other stroke issues, speech, etc. Then he started to come out of it and after two days, walking talking and getting back to himself. No paralysis. Every test in the world, except for an invasive spinal test, that they would have been done if he hadn’t recovered so well and quickly. Ultimately, they couldn’t find the actual stroke but doc said all of his tests were great for everything, and if the stroke was very small it could hide between the sections of the MRI, Only thing that shows is some comprehension issues for current potential stressful situations,( like staying at inpatient rehab for a week.) And also some hand/eye stuff.
He went to rehab and then left before the evaluation. I was devastated.
He did agree to seek rehab near home, but we have to wait 2-3 weeks before he can start.
So, now, what suggestions does anyone have for dos and don’t s until rehab?
I am still reeling from 5 days of no sleep and stress, and every one on this site has always been so helpful, hoping there will be some ideas…
Thank you in advance!
