I have a question which is playing on my mind....it wont make any difference now but wonder if people can get very confused the night before a stroke?
My mum had a massive stroke in the spring. The night before she was presenting as really confused which was not her normal self...able to talk but saying very strange things...we told nursing staff we were concerned as she presented as really confused twice before getting PE but they fobbed us off and said she was fine.
The next day i got a call saying they were moving her to another hispital as 'she is not herself' almost two hours later she arrived at the emergency hospital and the first thing the paramedic said was 'it was very clear it was a stroke when we got there.'
We cannot undo what has happened but the question keeps going round in round in my head. I think the reality of it all is finally kicking in now... after spending months and months fighting for mum and whats best for her and refusing to let other people make decisions for her that are not in her best interest.
I am new to the group so apologies if my post is not allowed...i am not asking for a medical opinion...just wondering what families and stroke survivors experiences are.
