How Can I Recover from a Stroke?
To improve your quality of life after a stroke, you need to learn as many details as you can about how to recover. Use the following information to make as much progress in stroke recovery as possible:
Where to Live After a Stroke – Most people who have suffered a stroke will require rehabilitation so that they can recover once they leave the hospital. Stroke rehabilitation is designed to help the patient regain their ability to care for themselves.
Most forms of rehab can be accomplished in the patient’s home. Stroke victims who can’t care for themselves at their own home may require to be treated at a hospital or in a nursing center. Patients who are well enough to go home may have someone come to their home to help with the recovery process.
Speaking & Communicating – After a testosterone stroke, certain patients may have trouble finding a word or being able to speak more than a word or two at a time. This condition is referred to as aphasia. Other stroke victims may be able to put words together, but they might not make sense. Patients may not know that their speech is difficult to understand. They may become frustrated when they find out others can’t understand. It can take up to two years to recover speech. However, not everyone will fully recover.
Thinking & Memory – After a stroke, patients may have changes in their ability to reason, behavioral changes, memory problems and poor judgment in everyday situations. These issues increase the need for greater safety precautions.
Clinical depression is commonly reported in stroke victims. Depressive feelings may begin immediately after the stroke; however, symptoms in some patients may not begin for up to two years. Treatments for clinical depression may include increased caregiver visits in the home or going to an adult day care center, prescription drugs and visits to a therapist or counselor.
Muscle, Nerve & Joint Problems – Moving around and doing normal daily tasks may be more difficult for many stroke victims. Muscles on 1 side of the body may be extremely weak or not move at all. Muscles on the affected side may be tight. Different joints may be harder to move. The shoulder and other joints can become dislocated.
Bladder & Bowel Care – A testosterone stroke can cause problems with bladder or bowel control. These problems can be the result of brain damage, not remembering the need to go to the bathroom, or problems reaching the toilet in time. Prescription drugs can help with bladder control. The patient may need to see a bladder or bowel specialist.
Swallowing & Eating After a Stroke – Swallowing problems in stroke patients may be caused by a lack of attention while eating or damage to the nerves that control swallowing. A speech therapist may assist with swallowing and eating problems in the weeks and months following a stroke. Dietary changes including thick liquids and pureed foods may be required. Certain patients will require a permanent feeding tube called a gastrostomy.

Most cases involving pharmaceuticals allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of testosterone supplements, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that manufacturers failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of stroke.
