Can a stroke victims memory improve after two months?
Every stroke is different.
My memory improved steadily over about 18 months. Some memories will have gone altogether, others will revive. I lost the 3 months before stroke. But I now have better long term memories. The day to day stuff is just different. The big thing is to learn how to use your "new self". I kept trying to use my memory as though I was the old me and it doesn't work. I am now getting to grips with memory as the "new me".
Two months is very early. Things will settle down over the months and years.
Good luck and best wishes
Thank you so very very much for your reply, it was very heartening to learn about our experience. Regards Rosie
Initially after my stroke I'm not sure about my memory, I was too busy coping with the physical effects of it . After about 8 months I started trying to play the guitar and keyboards again. Initially the results were disheartening but I persisted and now after three years I am not doing too badly with them both. Memory problems struck me when I started to look at music again. I knew the dots meant something but wasn't sure. It took me about a month to work out what they meant. I can now read music almost as well as I could pre-stroke.
This answer shows you that 'yes' memory can improve. Please keep in touch and tell us more about your hubby.
