Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The sudden deterioration in his health seems to be due to the depression only.Without any further attacks there is no other organic reason for his deterioration of health. He needs some emotional support and a motivation and some inner strength to get better.

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
You have to consult an Necrology doctor. Physiotherapy treatment is good for your father. Electrical stimulation and exercises are very helpful to recover muscle power.
Exercises play important role here because it will regain the muscle power because if he stop the exercises it may create other deformities as well as motivation and emotional support is very important for the patient.
Wish your father recover very soon
Thanks

Hello Doctor, I have these queries for my father, he just had a paralysis attack and his left side of the body is affected. left arm is the highly affected part and left leg is still operaionl lets say by 50% and the face is also affected and he is having problem in apeaking. I am in deep pain right now because i am not with my father as i was in a different country for work. but i am going back home within 3-4 days. What do you think is the situation permanent or temporary and what can we do other than the medical support like diet part and what extra should we give him so it can help him to move his body parts working gradually. Thanks a lot for your time !! Varun Paul
