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:

What are YOUR goals and expectations for stroke recovery?

YOUR GOALS, not what the low expectation goals your therapists and doctors set for you. If your goal is 100% recovery, tell your doctor that and don't back down when they say it is not possible. Ask when it will be possible and what EXACTLY they are doing to get to that point for all their patients. If they spout 'All strokes are different, all stroke recoveries are different' tell them to fuck off and read some research. A path exists to get to 100% recovery. It will take a bunch of research and time but it is doable for anyone with drive and persistence. Tell them the status quo is a failure and to find the successes needed for stroke recovery. They are doctors, they are supposed to help people, not provide excuses on why you can't be helped.
