Five Complications Caused by Stroke
Unlike many health problems, the aftermath of a stroke can be more difficult than the actual occurrence. For some, a stroke lasts for an extended period of time or might include several mini-strokes. When the brain swells or bleeds during a stroke, conditions can go from bad to worse very quickly. There are also instances in which stroke and heart attack occur simultaneously. If you or a loved one is having a stroke or has recently suffered a stroke, the following complications may occur:
Difficult Drinking or Eating
A stroke can make it difficult to swallow. This might discourage patients from eating or cause difficulty when eating. There are instances in which food enters the trachea instead of the esophagus and some stroke patients suffer from a condition known as swallowing pneumonia, or they might develop a lung infection.
Depression is very common for stroke patients. The recovery process can be long, frustrating, and painful. Patients are forced to face a permanent change in their lifestyle and might be forced to deal with issues of mortality. If a loved one has suffered a stroke, monitor him or her carefully for signs of depression. If you are having a difficult time with recovery after a stroke, speak with your doctor about counseling or therapy.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Stroke patients are left with limited movement, which can cause blood clots to form in the legs. In serious cases, these blood clots break free and move to the lungs, triggering a pulmonary embolism. These conditions are serious, but can be avoided with proper physical therapy.
Stroke patients are often left with impairments that deal with speech. The degree of damage ranges from minor speech defects to a complete inability to speak. Sometimes the speaking problems pass, but other times they are permanent and patients must participate in speech therapy.
Some stroke patients are left with impaired thinking following their event. Sometimes this is as simple as clouded thoughts or the need to speak slowly and concentrate a little harder than before the stroke. In other cases, stroke patients are left with severe cognitive issues. They may require round-the-clock supervision or need to be supervised in a nursing care facility.
Stroke can affect a person’s quality of life a great deal, but there are also many people who enjoy a near-complete recovery after their incident. The important thing is to work closely with doctors to determine what type of recovery is possible and what support is available during the period following a stroke.
