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:

Residual stroke problems

There is absolutely no one in the world I can go to to solve ANY of my residual stroke problems. I guess I'll be disabled for the rest of my life and my doctors and therapists that didn't get me recovered will suffer no consequences for that failure.  They even got paid for not delivering results.  Hell, ALL doctors and therapists have a 90% failure rate for getting stroke survivors fully recovered, but you know from last years World Stroke day that 'Stroke is Treatable', don't you?
  1. Spasticity preventing correct walking
  2. Spasticity preventing left arm use, raising arm overhead, reaching.
  3. Spasticity preventing straightening fingers, no grasp and release.


  1. Devil's advocate: And what do those limitations prevent you from doing - that you want to do?

    1. Running, swimming, biking on two wheels.
      The little things; Unable to slather sunscreen on my right arm, unable to scratch my right arm.
      I refuse to let my medical providers off the hook, just because I can do practically anything I want.
      Missionary style sex, left arm collapses.

  2. That's a long list - with some of the most fun activities on it.
