My father had a stroke on his left side on November 2016. Stroke had left him with limited physical movement on left side. And he has become very mentally stubborn and getd angry very soon. Just because of this hr refuses to take and medication and physiotherapy. he didn’t improve how much he should have because he just won’t listen to anyone. I feel his features have changed. His eyes look as he can’t focus his vision. I really want him to recover. He doesn’t trust allopathy. He has always been a strong person but my mother’s death left him vulnerable. He had his stroke on her birthday only. Can he recover his movements in his hand. He feels very depressed and calls himself handicap. I just want him to recover as much that he stops feeling pitty for himself.
