A woman is rushed into surgery with a life-threatening blood clot in her brain.
Chinese woman wakes from coma after suffering stroke - but can only speak ENGLISH The 94-year-old, a former English teacher who had not spoken the language for 30 years, has lost the ability to speak or understand her mother tongue Doctors have been left baffled after an elderly Chinese woman awoke from a coma two weeks after suffering a stroke - and can only speak ENGLISH. Ninety-four-year-old Liu Jieyu formerly worked as an English teacher, but her family insist she had not spoken the language for more than 30 years. So it was something of a shock when she awoke from the coma and had apparently lost the ability to speak or understand her mother tongue. In stark contrast, she was fluent in English. CENLiu JieyuBaffling: Liu Jieyu woke up from suffering a stroke to find she could no longer speak Chinese According to medics in Changsha, China, she came to and, speaking slowly but clearly in perfect English, asked: "Where am I? What is happening?" 5 cheap ways to learn a language in 2015 An English-speaking doctor found that could no longer speak Chinese. Liu suffered a cerebral infarction, a kind of stroke where the blood supply is limited rather than instantly cut off by a blockage, a fortnight ago. It was touch and go whether she would survive. CENLiu JieyuDamage: Doctors believe brain cells will need time to recover before Liu can Chinese again Dr Tao Hou said: "I can't ever remember having a case like this before but we anticipate with proper rehabilitation and rest she should regain the ability to speak Chinese. "We assume that the area dealing with her ability to speak Chinese has been damaged, but brain cells to have an ability to repair themselves to a certain extent we would hope to see at least some improvement."
Young mum-to-be paralysed and left in coma after suffering stroke caused by pregnancy. An expectant mum was left paralysed and in a coma for nearly two weeks after suffering a stroke caused by her pregnancy. Danielle Pownall had a stroke at nine weeks pregnant , when she was 27-years-old. After waking up with a pain in her neck she initially thought nothing of it. But within hours she was unable to move from the neck down and she was put into an induced coma. Doctors told her she would not walk again for 18 months, the Liverpool Echo reports . Despite her gloomy prognosis, determined Danielle fought back and walked out of hospital just five weeks later. She spent 12 days in a coma while pregnant with her daughter Isla, now aged two-and-a-half, in August 2014. Now, Danielle, 30, from the Wirral, has explained how on the day of her stroke she woke up feeling unwell but went to work as normal. She said: “On the day it happened I woke up at 6 in the morning with pain in the back of my neck, but at first I didn't think anything of it. “I was an area manager for Farmfoods and had to go to Rochdale, but I needed to stop a couple of times on the way because I didn't feel well. “I got to the shop and had pins and needles in both of my hands but again, I didn't think anything of it. “My boss told me to just go home and I went to Old Swan walk-in centre on my way back. They tested everything but couldn't find anything. “When I got home I tried to sleep but I went to go to the bathroom and I didn't have any balance. Then I rang my mum and I couldn't move. “An ambulance came and I can't remember anything else. Then I woke up two weeks later.” It was initially feared Danielle had meningitis or Guillain-Barré syndrome, but tests showed she had suffered a spinal stroke caused by a blood clot in her neck. She had discovered she was pregnant just two weeks before falling ill in August 2014, and doctors believe this was the cause of her stroke. During pregnancy, levels of female hormones rise, causing changes in blood vessels and the make-up of the blood. Blood pressure can also rise, increasing the chance of a stroke. Although the risk is small, the Stroke Association says pregnant women are 13 times more likely to have a stroke than non-pregnant women of the same age. Once she awoke from her coma, Danielle's movement gradually improved each day, and fortunately her baby was unharmed. She says knowing she was expecting daughter Isla, now two-and-a-half, gave her the will to fight back. She said: “I wasn't scared. It was the weirdest thing. Because I'd had migraines before, when I woke up I thought I'd had a brain tumour. “I wasn't ever scared of not being able to walk, because I knew I would. And even if I couldn't, my uncle is in a wheelchair and he runs his own business. “I think being pregnant helped. If I wasn't I might not have been as hard on myself. “They told Tom it would be 18 months before I walked but I was in hospital for five weeks and then I walked out – although it was slow! “I had physio at home every day for 12 weeks and one of my friends took me swimming to build my strength up. “They've tested everything since and there was nothing else it could have been. “I've never had anything wrong with me. I used to go to the gym five times a week!” Danielle has been left with weakness on the left hand side of her body and is unable to feel hot or cold from the neck down. She has been advised not to have any more children but says she feels lucky to have “perfect” Isla. She says her life has changed completely – she now works part time at Arrowe Park Hospital's Ronald McDonald house as well as running her own business Peggy-Mays, specialising in bespoke clothes customisation and printing. She said: “It sounds cheesy but my life has changed for the better. I was doing 60 hours a week at work and running around like a headless chicken. “I loved my job but I've always wanted to own my own business. I had no interest in worrying about how many bags of chips were in the freezer any more. “Before, I never would have ha #Young #mum-to-be #paralysed #and #left #in #coma #after #suffering #stroke #caused #by #pregnancy
