***Pleeeeeeeese answer - Can a paralyzed stroke victim regain feeling?
My grandpa just had a stroke, (as in few hours ago) and was air lifted to a larger city hospital. We just received word that he is completely paralyzed on the left side. My question is, is it possible for him to regain the feeling in his left side and go back to normal? I sure hope so. Let me know

I really wish I could answer that because I can see that its important to you, but I'm not quite sure.

Maybe he could get those robotic hands and major surgery, but I'm not into medical things so I dont know.

I'm horribly sorry.

Good luck!!!

they have drugs now that prevent swelling to the damaged area of the brain, usually if given in a few hours ,permanent damage can be prevented. Rehabilitation is very helpful in regaining use and feeling. Great strides have been made, keep up the hope and my best to your gramps.

Unfortunately, there's no set answer to your question. Everyone's brain is different, their strokes are different, and their recovery is different.

In some cases, people regain feeling and muscle movement on the affected side. They can learn to walk again, at least for short distances. Others regain just enough to transfer from a chair to a bed. In some cases, the stroke victim remains dependent on a wheelchair. Generally, the affected side doesn't return to "normal," though people can do a good job of compensating.

I work in a healthcare setting and I meet people who have had strokes every day. If I may offer some advice; don't worry right away about the "big picture." It sounds cliche, but take it one day at a time. Visit your grandpa, talk to his therapists, and have them give you a way to be involved in his recovery. (Often family members can inspire motivation better than therapists!) Once recovery is stabilized, research some stroke survivor support groups. Because recovery can be a slow process, it really is uplifting to see people who have been through it and how far they've come - for both the stroke survivor and their family member.

All the best.

He will probably never completely get back to normal but may be able to regain some movement with physical therapy.I wish I could give you better news but it really depends on a lot of things.Some feeling might be regained as he heals.Just remember he is still the same person inside.I had a stroke last year. Pray for him.God Bless.

Yes it is possible. Although not likely for a full recovery.
