Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
After a stroke, the patient needs to undergo recovery therapy after the emergency situation has been resolved and has been in a stable condition to undergo the rehabilitation process. Post-stroke recovery therapy aims to be able to move according to the optimal capacity that can be achieved and improve the quality of life of patients. There are 4 components to post-stroke rehabilitation therapy, including:
Physical therapy, aims to train patients to do simple movements, for example moving limbs, training to be able to sit, to stand and walk
Speech therapy, aims to train patients to communicate / talk
Occupational therapy, aims to train patients to eat, drink, dress, relieve themselves
Psychological therapy, aims to help deal with depressive episodes that may be experienced associated with stroke
In order to plan accordingly, we recommend that your husband be brought to consult directly with a medical rehabilitation specialist. Later the doctor will evaluate his health condition and plan rehabilitation therapy as needed.
As a suggestion, it is recommended that your husband avoid smoking and eat balanced nutritious foods. Also make sure that the patient uses medicines from the doctor according to the instructions and routine control according to the schedule agreed between the patient and the doctor.
