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:

15 Long Term Effects Of Stroke

Every single one of these should have a stroke protocol to use to recover from that deficit. I don't care how fucking hard it is to solve, it can be done, but your lazy stroke medical 'professionals' aren't even trying to solve these problems.
If you have had a stroke, the effects of your stroke may endure long after your first stroke symptoms stabilize and after you receive appropriate stroke treatment.
Your long-term stroke effects are, in many ways, similar to your initial stroke symptoms. What the immediate and long-standing effects of a stroke have in common is that they generally involve the same part of the body or the same cognitive function.
For example, your arm may be weak, your face may be lopsided, speech might be garbled, or vision may be blurry. This is because the initial symptoms of a stroke correspond to the area of the brain that is injured by the stroke, as do the enduring residual effects.
However, some effects of stroke can take months, or even years, to develop. The most common effects of a stroke are described below.


Balance Problems or Dizziness

Vision Changes

Speech and Communication Problems



Cognitive Deficits

Spatial Difficulties/Neglecting One Side of the Body

Behavioral Changes

Emotional Distress


Fatigue and Sleeping Problems

Swallowing Difficulties

Trouble With Urination

Muscle Atrophy

Muscle Spasticity
