HISTORY SHOWS THAT YOUR WIFE IS HAVING ISCHEMIC STROKE. FIRST TRY TO KNOW THE CAUSE AND WE NEED TO PREVENT THE CAUSE LIKE HYPERLIPEDEMIA, HIGH CHOLESTERAIN LEVEL ETC, PRESSURE NEED MONITORING ALWAYS TO PREVENT FURTHER STROKE INCIDENT.
NEURONS/ BRAIN TISSUE ONCE DAMAGED ARE IRREVERSIBLE MEANS CANNT REGENERATE. SO, WE HAVE TO PREVENT FURTHER DAMAGE BY STRICT REGULATION OF VITALS . SOMETIMES , HEMIPLEGIA MAY BE ASSOCIATED WHICH NEED TO MANAGE IN PROPER WAY.

TAKE NEUROVITAMINS. ALSO IF THE CLOT DOES NOT GOES, INTRARTERIAL THROMBECTOMY CAN BE T TRIED.
