post stroke

My mother had a stroke 2 months ago in the back of her brain (where the small brain is located). She has difficulty with balance and vision. Could this be due to the stroke? Your assistance will be appreciated.

It is highly likely that these symptoms are related to the stroke. Ideally she should be seen by a good local neorologist or at least a specialist general physician, for a full examination and assessment, and advice on how best to manage this. As there is a continuing risk of further strokes, this is important, and varying approaches are taken, in part depending on her age, to trying to reduce the risk of further strokes, including medication, as well as possibly some physio and rehabilitation.
