I am 60 years old male. Before a year, I got a stroke. After recovering from it, my left side ear, hand, and leg are not functioning well. Please suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
After a stroke, usually, recovery is maximum in initial three to six months. After that, you can have a slight improvement up to one to one and a half years. Some residual weakness usually persists. You need to do regular physiotherapy. Few patients develop spasticity, and it needs to be taken care by proper medicines or physiotherapy. I suggest you consult a neurologist in person for appropriate examination with all your previous reports.
