Stroke and Mental Health
An_258129 posted:
My dad had a mini and minor stroke two days apart 3 months ago. He has recovered with just some tingling and cold in right hand. One month after the stroke he became constipated, the doc sent him to the ER to get an enema where the ER doctors ran all types of tests with no diagnosis. He then went to his doctors office and had two enemas done problem solved. Since then complains about being to bloated to eat and if he doesn't have a bowel every day of every other day he wants he says he bloated and needs to go to the doctors. He also says he knows he's having problems though he has been cleared by one of the top cardiologist in our area. Is he just looking for attention so he doesn't have to be alone or will a stroke cause damage in the brain where a person becomes almost hypochondriac?
