I have a question for anyone who would care to answer. On December 10, 2012 my mother had a stroke it was six days before her 65th birthday. She was rushed by my father to the local ER and had really good care she was then transferred to a major hospital about one hour away and saw a neurologist. He discharged her December 15th. At first he stated that he wanted to see her back in two weeks. After she got home his office called and stated he wanted to see her on Jan. 26th. The office called once again today and said the dr would not be in the office on Tuesday and they would have to rescheduled till June. This does not make sense to me. She is getting no follow up care. I will be calling the dr office tomorrow but I was wondering how long after a stroke is the typical recheck.View Thread
