Krysta Owings – A Stroke Patient Story

Krysta Owings – A Stroke Patient Story

Krysta Owings tells her story of experiencing a stroke at age 25 and the expert care she received at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Krysta was born with an AVM (arteriovenous malformation), which is a cerebrovascular disease that can cause bleeding in the brain and result in a stroke. After a successful surgery to remove the AVM, Krysta underwent a week of rehab at The Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis and has fully recovered.

    I came here expecting to learn about her recovery but it’s more like a hospital commercial—health care in the US is so strange! This young woman is incredibly fortunate that her AVM rupture was not severe. Many, like my daughter, are not that fortunate. My daughter received immediate help after her AVM rupture from amazing medical professionals—EMS, doctors, nurses, surgeons, neurologists, respiratory therapists etc., but In total my daughter was hospitalized for 8 months following her hemorrhage and surgery. She was 10 and she will never be fully recovered -ever. I’m glad this woman’s experience was different.

    Having a brain AVM rupture is something that is very hard to explain to others. Your never the same person after the recovery. My biggest struggles to this day are short term memory loss. It’s not that bad now but whenever I’m multitasking it’s best to keep notes or some one just text me so I can check. Krysta if you want to tell your story more or see others that have faced the same struggles go to AVM

    Thank you for sharing.
    On the 4th Nov 2019 my mum suffered a stroke as well. It was the most painful time of my life seeing her go through this.
    I started the site @t to share good stroke information to everyone, and dedicated it to my mum.

    Cerebral stroke is a brain disorder. My friend also had this problem. She used various medicines but had no relief. Then she tried Ayurvedic treatment of "Planet Ayurveda". It includes Brahmi Capsules, Ashwagandha capsule, etc. It really worked on her.
