Complications associated with a massive stroke | Stroke 2018

Complications and resulting impairments become more serious depending on the severity of the stroke. Complications can include the following:
Rehabilitation services can help minimize complications and may include working with:
  • a physical therapist to restore movement
  • an occupational therapist to learn how to perform daily tasks, such as activities involving personal hygiene, cooking, and cleaning
  • speech therapist to improve speaking ability
  • psychologist to help cope with feelings of anxiety or depression
Coping after a stroke
Some people who have a stroke recover quickly and can regain normal function of their body after just a few days. For other people, recovery may take six months or longer.
No matter how long it takes you to recover from your stroke, recovery is a process. Remaining optimistic can help you cope. Celebrate any and all progress you make. Talking to a therapist can help you work through your recovery, too.
