Customer Question
My wife who is...

My wife who is a stroke victim and cannot speak. The last couple of days when I are her on her side to change her she feels pain. Once on her back she's fine. Today she didn't want to sit up. When I press around her stomach she feels no pain. What could be causing this?

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

It's my wife not me. She vomited last weekend but has been fine since

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She had seizures after the stroke, but hadn't had one for 83 weeks until this past Monday...very mild.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
