Hello everyone,
My boyfriend's mother is 69 years old. She was diagnosed tuberculous meningitis with hydrocephalus and an appearance of brain atrophy in June 2008. After two months' treatment in hospital, she got better, but was still in semiconsciousness. At the end of August, the disease repeated. She often stayed in coma, fecal and urinary incontinence, and could not take care of herself. Doctors from the neurology department diagnosed as communication hydrocephalus, brain atrophy, and subretinal space adhesion. They said it was so hard to cure; even if it was cured, there must be some paralysis. Without positive improvement we got her back home in October 2008.
So is there any treatment to improve this condition? Thanks a lot!

Thanks a lot!Hi, My friend's mother also suffers stroke, and he asked us friends for some suggestion. As far as I'm concerned, I'm afraid that modern medicine can do little in stroke recovery, maybe alternative medincine can work. meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis, reflexology, herbalmedicine, and so on are all alternatice medicine, and I think there must be one can help your father. On my understanding, Traditional Chinese Medicine should be the best choice, oral pellet and massage will improve the condition. My friend now is considering to take Kangnaowan Pellet, which is a Traditional Chinese Medicine, and also he plans to do massage to help his mother's recovery. Hope it will help you.
