Recurrence of stroke effects

by Margaret
(Exeter uk)

Question: In the 3 and 1/2 years since my husband had a severe left side affected stroke, he has had an annual recurrence necessitating a hospital stay & lengthy rehab. He has not had another stroke, but the old stroke site has been irritated, the most recent as after a pilgrimage to Lourdes. What can be done to prevent this?

Answer: This sounds more like a medical problem than a problem with rehabilitation so I would recommend talking to his doctors about what is going on and how to prevent it if possible.
