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:

One handed Wellie boot removal

I've been wearing these a lot lately since there is mud and standing water on the trails I walk for my 10,000 daily steps. Normally you would sit down, cross your legs and yank off these boots with both hands. They are fairly tight and I have a high instep making removal even tougher. So I use a boot jack. It mostly works, having to hang onto a railing for dear life to keep from toppling over. Finally determined that the affected left foot needs to be removed first.
Mine is heavy duty plastic, don't think wood would be strong enough.
