How long does it take to recover from a stroke?Can brain heal itself after it? – Dr.Anil R

Yes, brain can definitely heal itself, the smaller the stroke, the better the recovery, the larger the stroke, it takes a long time to recover and the site and the location and the type pf the stroke matters, whether it is a stroke because of the blockage or because of a bleed dint the brain. A smaller stroke generally heals within weeks, whereas large stroke takes few months. Very important is when did you seek medical advice . you come as early to the neurologist with an early symptom of stroke because there are lot of treatments available now. There are clot bursting mechanisms called as thrombolysis that can be immediately administered. Patient comes within 3 to 4 hours of the symptom of the stroke, there he can have a complete recovery or patient coming late can have a deficit which is eft and is there for a longer time. Second thing is how good you give the rehabilitation. Once the stroke occurs, you seek medical advice, you seek discharge, you need to undergo a good rehabilitation process that is physiotherapy, occupational therapy and if you have any difficulty in talking, speech therapy. All these therapies, really help you to recover faster. The small stroke answer to the question is yes, brain can heal itself and the healing is better if you come early to medical attention and if you follow the advice properly.
