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 is the logical course of action to solve all the problems in stroke?

The first action is to identify those problems as compared to our stroke associations who don't even acknowledge there are any problems in stroke. Don't you know that prevention press releases and F.A.S.T. are all that is needed? That leaves survivors totally screwed.
My assumption was that just stating the factual needs and problems of stroke survivors would lead to change. Obviously that is totally wrong, entrenched interests in keeping the status quo, stroke associations working only for doctors for example, and researchers going for the easy research, finding a new prediction point for stroke.
The stroke associations believe in not even addressing any of the problems in stroke, they do the lazy press release route and pat themselves on the back for that fucking pathetic nonhelp.

Obviously no one in the stroke medical world really cares about solving problems for survivors. You're screwed, deal with it and be happy you are alive.  

A stroke survivor like me should not be required to solve all my own stroke deficits along with all the incompetency in the stroke medical world. I don't have enough brain cells for that or any minions working for me.
