My dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago and I spoke to the physiotherapist today about why he wasn’t getting up and they said because he is hypo sensitive is this common

Hi @GTstroke
Welcome to the forum. Sorry you’ve had cause to join us :frowning:

If your dad had a stroke 2 weeks ago he probably has a long journey ahead with the much learning on the path. Many of us are unable to get up, even turn over for months and or years post stroke.

Hypersensitivity is (as far as I am aware) generally something that comes on about 2 to 4 months after the stroke rather than immediately. Hit doesn’t happen to everyone who has had a stroke.

You may find 40 things to know: what would you underline add or delete and Welcome - what we wish we'd heard at the start are both collected wisdom that will kickstart your ‘learning what to expect’

This is an excellent place to keep asking questions however with The wisdom of crowds being a valuable resource.
