Hello Dr. My husband (age 35yrs) suffered from brain stroke on 27th July 2016 n got fully right side paralysed n not able to talk. His neurosurgeon said he had some blood clot in left side of the brain n prescribed him to take levipril (thrice in a day), alpha citum(twice in day), idebest, vescurite (once in day) n rosumac gold 20 (once in day) bcz he is a heart patient too. Now in 3 months he is able to walk n his hand is little bit working but still he had problem in speech. He continued physiotherapy n speech therapy both. I want to know how long it takes his recovery to be as he is in his normal life n able to talk. He understands everything but dnt know "what to right", "how to form word n sentence." Sometimes, due to this he got frustrated n irritated. I m very much worried about him.
My father is diagnosed with ALS. Apart from usual symptoms he is having frequent fever. His treatment is ongoing with prescription of Riluzole and other medicines.

On consultation with my ENT surgeon , he told i had slight polyp developed in my left maxillary and asked me to go for a CT scan for brain and pns , should I consult a neurologist first and then take scans?
