Your mother has suffered a major stroke (Paralysis) and presently you are seeing after effects of that in many ways. 1. Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy, Psychology professionals other than doctors to treat her diabetes would be essential. 2. If you find limited facilities near your present home we would suggest Institute for Neurological Sciences in Guwahati or any large institute in Kolkata.

see ur mother is a diabetic & perhaps hypertensve .....neurological damages are always poor to respond ....all u need is to concentrate on two things esp ....control her diabetes and her blood pressure so that future other attacks dont occur ...consult a good physician regularly & dont change ur doctor frequently
You can contact me at: luxman02@gmail.com with all your details including medicines .your test reports, your other illnesses ,how regular with treatment.

Is there any permanent cure for paralysis? My father had an accident more than two years ago. He fell off his motorbike, which resulted in a head injury. The head injury later caused paralysis that affected the left side of his body. He has not recovered from the paralysis since then, despite the fact that we got the services of many physiotherapists and consulted neurosurgeons. My father is nearly 67 and feels too much disappointed.
