Hello Haning Magfiroh


Thank you for your question


Weakness of one limb can indeed be caused by a stroke as you mean, especially if there is a history of high blood pressure or hypertension in your father. Stroke is a condition that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is cut off due to blockage or rupture of a blood vessel, resulting in the death of cells in some areas of the brain. As a result of cell death in this brain area, various symptoms can appear, ranging from mild to severe. In extensive brain damage, in addition to impaired movement of limbs, someone who has had a stroke will become unconscious, even in really severe disorders that can cause death. In cases of mild brain damage, simple symptoms can appear such as impaired movement of the limbs, numbness or paralysis, speech disorders and others. If treated immediately, of course the brain damage will not be widespread. Regarding the recovery of stroke sufferers, of course, depending on the brain damage that occurs, it may experience complete improvement or still leave residual symptoms. In most cases, stroke sufferers do not experience complete recovery. As in your father, there are residual symptoms of numbness and weakness. This condition can be cured completely if long-term rehabilitation measures are carried out. Rehabilitation with physiotherapy, namely efforts or certain exercises for stroke patients to overcome movement disorders in body posture and movement of limbs. Even with physiotherapy, it is not certain whether your father's condition can fully recover.


You should check your father back at the doctor and ask for advice on whether physiotherapy is necessary to overcome your father's complaints.


Hope this answer helps you.
