Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

Andrew Marr reveals 'he always thought of Uma Thurman and Kill Bill' during stroke recovery

Damn sure your hospital is going to have a copy of Kill Bill to watch for your therapy. I actually liked that movie for its over the top blood spraying.
The BBC presenter explains: “In Kill Bill: Vol.1 there’s a moment where Uma has had a rather rough time and she’s waking up in hospital and there’s one toe which she’s trying to make move and if she can make the toe move then all the recovery will follow.”
Marr continues: “It was a bit like that with me. I’d spend hours and hours trying to make a finger move, or a toe move – not hours, not weeks, months, and then eventually you get a little bit of movement. I always thought of that film at the beginning.”
