My mother had a very severe hemorrhagic stroke on Friday 6th February, 2015 and was left in a coma for about three weeks. She slowly started to wake up but she was very paralysed on the left side of her body, including the left side of her face. After she was cleared of being critically ill, she was moved to a rehabilitation centre and started acupuncture with Jenny Li.
The video has recorded her improvement of unable to move the leg initially but only after the electric acupuncture, then slowly she could lift the leg when coughing and held for a short while.
Jenny has been coming in to treat my mother with acupuncture three times a week for the last a few months, in the beginning, she was not about to sit herself up in bed, nor stand up alone without full support. The stroke has left my mother with some depression and obvious frustration that she has lost a lot of her independence, her speech is blurred and hard to understand too.
The MRI image has indicated the massive hemorrhage on the right side of her brain.
Apart from acupuncture, Jenny has also provided my mother with some traditional herbs to take to aid re-absorbing all the bleeding she had from the stroke. Jenny has been patient and understanding throughout this difficult situation and is always willing to give encouragement.
