what will my life be like if the left side of my brain is dead because of a stroke?


Posted by jazzyjean52

Two and a half months ago my 40 year old daughter had a stroke while alone.  We don't know how long it had been before she was found.  She is conscience and can open her eyes but she can't control them. For the most part, she is unresponsive.

The doctors told me today that a great portion of the left side of her brain is dead.  I know what that means for language,  memory, reasoning and the use of the right side of her body. But what else will be affected? 

Thank you for your help and for being there.
