Dear Mhpo

A Stroke or brain attack is injury to part of your brain due to a bleed or a blood clot blocking the artery, so that a part of the brain does not get blood flow (oxygen) and some brain tissue dies. Depending on where this happened and how big an area was affected, the patient may recover partially or not at all. Most people do not recover 100% after a stroke, many get better but have residual loss of function of the arms or legs or speech.
