Hi, my mum experienced an evolving ischemic stroke 3 months ago. Intially when she was admitted to hospital, she was doing well. She had only lost some power on her left side, until 5 days later she took a turn for the worst and lost all abilty to communicate. She has made a great recovery and is back home, but she has been left with a commuication problem. She has the abilty to speak, read and write really well, but is unable to understand when someone speaks to her. She says she can just hear nosies but not words. We have invested in hearing aids in both ears as were were informed by the hospital that it could be a hearing issue. To our disappoitment, this has not made any difference. We are at a loss as to where we go next as we havent had much advice from the medical professional on this either. Has anyone experienced this? Is this likely to fix itself in time, or will this be something that will never repair? Any feedback would be great. She is 78 years old and was fit as a fiddle. Thanks.
