Is There Something Wrong With My Brain I Had Stroke But They Said I Recovered
Not exactly: A stroke is caused by a blockage in a blood vessel that supplies an area of the brain.

My husband has been diagnosed with severe white matter brain disease. What is that and what does it mean? He is recovering from a stroke.

My uncle had a stroke and is suffering from brain hemorrhage. The stroke affected his right side. Will he recover?
Close F/up: After a stroke due to a blood clot aka-embolic stroke, one should be carefully followed by a doctor.
