Thank you for posting your query.
It is unfortunate that your mother's condition has deteriorated overnight.
She should be taken to a neurologist
. CT scan
of the brain would be done to correctly diagnose the nature of stroke
and size, location of clot, etc.
It the stroke is due to a large bleeding or a large clot, surgery may be required. She would be monitored in the ICU. If there is brain swelling
, medicines would be given to decrease the brain swelling.
With good treatments, more than 75% of stroke patients survive.
