Can you get paralyzed 2 wks later after having a Stroke

Question: My sister had a stroke on July 30, 2022, on her left side she was hospitalized and receiving care after her stroke she was able to move both hands and feet then 2 weeks later while still in the hospital she became paralyzed on her entire left side and could not move. Is this normal to become paralyzed 2 weeks after having a stroke?

Answer: If she didn't have paralysis originally and then developed paralysis two weeks after her initial stroke, then I would suspect an extension of the first stroke or possibly another stroke. I would consult with the MD for their assessment and ask for a brain scan.
