Weak arm, legs after HEMIPLEGIA, PARALYSIS due to fall.

Resolved Question:

I am 29 year old Male. 15 years old patientago i had an accident & i hit my head falling from a bicycle. It was later informed by my neurologist that the bang on my head led to hemiplegia & my left side of the body was paralysed. I underwent physio therapy for a while and was able to be independent. However the strength of my arms & legs is not at its fullest. i walk.. but my steps are not straight or as they are required to be... i cant hold or lift too much weight in my left hand my fingers wont straighten up and my wrist clicks whn i try to do the extension & flexion. To add to that my left elbow was also fractured after a fall lading directly on it.
Amidst all this, My query is I plan to marry & start a family, will my hemiplegia affect our baby in any direct or indirect way. & if it does is there anything i can do to eradicate or reduce the ill effects. I am really worried about it now..Could you please suggest..

Thank you for posting your query at
I have noted your past medical history and current symptoms. I would like to reassure you that your residual weakness and other symptoms would not affect your married life and your baby in any way. So, there is no need to worry.
The symptoms are due to old head injury. At present, you need to continue physiotherapy and exercises. In case, there is stiffness or spasticity in arms or legs, botox injections may be helpful.
