Patient :My father had a stroke 4 weeks ago and it affected his entire right side. He came home a week ago, through therapy he is able to walk with a quad cane. There is still no movement in his right arm, although he can feel when he is touched and he can offer resistance when the arm is moved. Today for the first time he said that his right leg feels cold. Is this something we should be worried about? What is the cause of this?
