Is it possible to have a major stroke and not get paralyzed?

Question by Nicole Ornias: Is it possible to have a major stroke and not get paralyzed?
My grandpa had a major stroke a couple months ago. The doctor said that on a scale of 1-10 it was 8 1/2. He did not get paralyzed and I couldn’t find anything on the internet.

The brain is a funny thing: even if it has a “bad” stroke & affects a huge part of the brain, the person may only seem to have minor troubles; on the other hand, I’ve had patients who cannot move after a stroke that seems quite minor and only affects a tiny part of the brain.
Yes, usually paralysis is seen after a stroke, because so many different parts of the brain control movement, and the quality of movement, but it is possible to have a stroke where movement isn’t affected. That usually happens when the frontal lobes are affected, and the person’s personality and memory is more affected.
