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.

#CuresIn4Words: “You are not alone

In stroke you are completely alone because your doctor knows nothing, your therapists can barely help you, you are expected to plan you own recovery methods.

As Dr. Steven Wolf writes, a rehabilitation stroke expert and professor at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta.  "Stroke patients need to rely more on their own problem solving to regain mobility".


But cancer is better than stroke:

In New Video, GOP Leader Highlights Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Push to Deliver #CuresNow

In a newly released video, Energy and Commerce Committee member and House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) spotlights Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the ongoing efforts to find a cure. McMorris Rodgers is the highest-ranking Republican woman in Congress.
In releasing the video, McMorris Rodgers wrote, “About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Our ultimate goal should not be to provide life-long treatment, but to find life-saving cures. … The work we are doing here in Congress – to invest in research and development and advance real medical innovation right here at home – seeks to help those who face a future of a disease without a cure. And it all starts by doing one thing: putting patients first.”
The sentiment is rooted in the 21st Century Cures Act, a critical component of the health care plank of House Republicans’ Better Way agenda.

Watch Chair McMorris Rodgers' video HERE.
In the video, Chair McMorris Rodgers comments,“(Y)our fight is our fight. With our 21st Century Cures Act, and more, we’re pressing for resources and research into combating breast cancer and other diseases that still lack cures. With our work, we’re helping those who face life-threatening diseases and letting those who are battling cancer know that you aren’t alone.”
That’s the very core of delivering #CuresNow. And it something everyone can relate to – finding hope and cures for everyone battling disease today and in the future. Our work continues.
