Stroke

Patient

Q: My name is Jasmina and I would like to get some advice on behalf of my father. My father suffer a massive stroke about two months ago. His left side has been affected and he can not move. He talks better then most people I have seen who have suffer a stroke but does not make sense of the things he talks about. He uses dippers and has a feeding tube. We had to purchase a hospital bed and wheel chair for him. The doctor told us that he will need these things until he gets better, if he gets better. We wanted to take him back to Bosnia and Herzegovina for rehab treatments, but we were told that he does not need this, and that we can do physical therapy our selves at home. So I wan to know if there is any thing that might help my father get some percentage of his memory back and that he might walk again or will he just stay this way for the rest of his life.?
