Hello Karina, Thank you for the question.
Does your mother have symptoms other than paralyzed legs and arms? Stroke is a condition of reduced blood flow that occurs in blood vessels in the brain that can be caused by a blockage in a blood vessel (ischemic stroke) or a rupture of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). Reduced blood flow in certain brain areas can cause these areas of the brain to experience a lack of oxygen and nutrients, causing the death of brain cells and impaired brain function. Some symptoms that can be experienced by sufferers are:
paralysis, weakness, tingling, or numbness / numbness in one side of the body
speech is unclear, chaotic, or even unable to speak at all
difficult to swallow
sudden visual impairment
loss of consciousness
If your mother also has trouble swallowing, it is recommended that your mother consume liquid / soft foods and drinks even if it is difficult to swallow at all, the doctor will install a tube from the nose that is connected to the stomach so that your mother can consume only fluids. If your mother is forced to eat, then your mother can choke and can even cause the food and drinks she consumes can risk entering the lungs. Due to limited information about your mother's overall condition, I'm sorry I cannot give advice on food and drinks that can be consumed by your mother.
In overcoming this condition, usually the patient will be recommended to undergo hospitalization in the hospital. In addition to providing drugs, doctors can also monitor whether the patient's condition improves or even worsens. Your doctor will give medicines that are tailored to the type of stroke your mother has experienced, which can be in the form of antiplatelet drugs, anticoagulant drugs, blood pressure-lowering drugs, stenting procedures, surgery. So that your mother can recover slowly, please follow the advice of a neurologist who handles your mother. However, you need to remember that most stroke sufferers cannot recover fully and require long-term rehabilitation. Even so, please keep your positive thinking and encourage your mother to follow the doctor's advice. If you and your family still have further questions about your mother's condition, please consult with your doctor who handled your mother before, who is more familiar with your mother's current condition.
Hopefully this information helps you.
