Neurologist 's  Response
Hello,
I am a neurologist, thank you for posting this question in HCM
Let me tell you that any given medical problem in medicine can be due to various reason and the long-term outcome depends the cause. Further in neurology, the outcome also largely depends upon the degree of initial damage to the brain. Brain stroke are mainly of two types, one in which there is bleeding and the second where there is less blood supply to brain in a particular area and that area gets damaged due to poor blood supply. The outcome of stroke depends upon which area of the brain is damaged, whether he had complete or partial paralysis and whether he had multiple areas of the brain involved. Again the outcome depends if you have gone to the hospital for treatment within 3 hrs or not, as there is a treatment available which can be given only within 3 hours. By this time i hope some of your doubts are clarified. Now you must understand that you have not posted so many things in order to clarify your doubts. However, i agree with your physician and what you have to do is to continue the medicines what your doctor has given and you have to go for aggressive neurorehabilitation which will help him a lot.
Hope this will help you

My doc told me that I m having Intestinal pseudoobstruction & advised using enema fleet once every 3-4days. Btw, I m a tetraplegia due to spinal cord injury 14yrs ago & underwent a sub-total colostomy a year ago. Before the intestinal operation, I had to use suppositories every day over the 13years. After the intestinal operation, my bowel movement was like 3 to 4 times a day which I had no control over it. And now no bowel movement without enema fleet. My question is, is it ok for my body in the long run if I clear my bowel movement once every 3 to 4 days? Is it better for my body if I were to clear my bowel movement daily using suppositories (Like in the past)?
