You should know that it is actually the pons. The pons deals with senses and impulses, so your boyfriend’s senses may be dull and he may move more slowly.

    my dear this is pons area ,,i am very sorry to hear about your boy friend,,i would like to say something about pons stroke,,this is as follows-

    The pons is part of the brainstem, the lowest part of the brain that connects to the top end of the spinal cord. It’s an important and densely packed area containing many bundles of nerves carrying movement and sensory messages between the brain and the body. It also acts as a junction box for all the nerves employed in coordinating movement and balance within the head and neck, as well as the body as a whole.

    Because there are so many important structures within the brainstem one small area of damage due to stroke can have wide-ranging consequences. The exact symptoms depend on which biological ‘electrical circuits’ and junctions lose their blood supply and that in turn depends on which of the small blood vessels in the area (branches of the vertebrobasilar circulation) becomes blocked.

    The symptoms can include difficulties with balance (ataxia), dizziness due to vertigo, uncoordinated eye movements, problems with swallowing and articulating words, and numbness and/ or weakness in one half of the body. It is not uncommon for victims of this sort of stroke to feel sick as part of the loss of balance.

    Recovery really depends on the extent and severity of the initial stroke. You need to discuss the outlook with the doctors who have investigated your mother’s condition. I really hope she is only mildly affected and makes a reasonable recovery.
