Good Morning. I am online and available to assist you today. I noticed that your have relisted your question.
The information that the other expert has given you is correct.
I am glad that your father is already able to move his left side a little bit. This is a good sign.
As to how long recovery will take this, as you might expect, is almost impossible to say with any amount of certainty. In the very least it will take months of hard work and continued medical management along with physical therapy
. He might even have to spend time in a rehab hospital or nursing home while he recovers. Of course, should he have another stroke, things would take much longer.
At this point treatment will include managing his high blood pressure and any other medical problems, watching for complications from his stroke such as increased swelling of the brain and doing everything possible to allow his body to heal and recover.
Of course, your fathers doctors, who know him and his medical condition the best, ***** ***** the best source for information concerning necessary treatment and estimates on how long recovery might take.
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles.
