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:

“For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.” - HL Mencken

Stroke recovery is an extremely complex problem which our fucking failures of stroke associations have avoided solving by focusing on prevention, F.A.S.T. and tPA delivery. Totally ignoring the neuronal cascade of death and protocols for rehabilitation. If you have had a stroke no one is solving how to get you 100% recovered. No one knows how to make neuroplasticity repeatable on demand or ensure neurogenesis sends new neurons to the correct locations. Everyone is dancing around all the problems in stroke because they are so damned difficult to solve. You are screwed if you have a stroke right now and I see nothing coming in the near future that will help.
