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.

Returning to Work After a Stroke

Not one piece of information on how your doctor is failing you by not getting you 100% recovered. You need to have a heart to heart talk with your doctor about such incompetence. More solving of secondary problems by the National Stroke Association. Rather than working on the primary problem of getting you 100% recovered.

 After a stroke, the road back to work can be challenging. Nearly one third of all strokes occur in people under the age of 65. Many people who have had a stroke intend to return to a full- or part-time job. Depending on the severity of the stroke, it might take weeks or months before returning to work is an option. (This should be a no-brainer, the full expectation is that you will directly step back into your old job. Anything less should not even be considered.)

  1. Another question would be how many people return to work and are unable to continue working. Maybe returning too soon maybe going back to the wrong type of job for them at that time, maybe going back without the stamina to work the number of hours or do the tasks required. Maybe a little more support would have made all the difference.
