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.

One handed clothing challenges

I had to hurriedly get my underwear down this morning. In the process it rolled itself tightly around the elastic waistband. It took about ten minutes to get it unrolled one handed. Nothing in my OTs training did I get any ADLs on this. At least it doesn't occur too often. I would expect a stroke protocol in that public database about how to do this. But no, 10 million stroke survivors a year will have to learn this on their own.

  2. After water therapy, when I put my panties on, they somehow end up a Mobius strip. Doesn't happen when I'm dry.
