Stroke can occur due to rupture or blockage of blood vessels that supply the brain with oxygen and nutrients to cause brain tissue damage. Impact from this condition, there will be a neurological deficit whose manifestations can vary, such as causing weakness or paralysis, numbness or tingling, difficulty speaking, difficulty swallowing, blurred or double vision, dizziness, headache, vomiting, impaired balance and coordination, disorders memory, decreased consciousness, even death in more severe cases. People with hypertension (high blood pressure) are more prone to having a stroke. In addition, the risk of stroke can also increase due to unhealthy lifestyles, obesity, alcohol consumption or excessive smoking, drug abuse, and have a variety of other diseases, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and heart disease.
Brain tissue that has died certainly requires a long time to be able to regenerate again as before. Therefore, recovery of stroke symptoms can not be done in a short time. Mild strokes are generally not very deadly. But indeed, recovery of this condition can take longer.
So that your father gets the best treatment for his condition, it is better to consult directly with the neurologist who treats him. Minor strokes will usually be handled by doctors administering drugs, risk factor management, coupled with physiotherapy, or even surgery. However, don't just rely on handling a doctor, so that your father's condition recovers faster, you should also do the following steps:
Help control his hypertension by limiting your father from consuming foods that contain lots of salt and flavoring, remind him to exercise regularly according to his abilities, also sleep more regularly
Also avoid other risk factors for stroke, such as by limiting the intake of foods containing excessive cholesterol and saturated fat, increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables, stopping smoking, avoiding alcohol and drugs, also on a diet to maintain ideal body weight
Accompany your father to undergo regular treatment according to doctor's advice
Make your father happy, calm, make sure that he can recover as long as the discipline undergoes handling and a lot of giving thanks to God Almighty
