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.

The 1rst, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th question to ask your doctor every time you see her/him; 'What exactly are YOU doing to get me 100% recovered?'

No dissembling allowed or the fuckingly lazy answer of; 'All strokes are different, all stroke recoveries are different'. Your doctor should be spitting out coffee in embarrassment for not knowing the answer to this. You will need to repeat the question multiple times because your doctor will run from answering it.  Screaming may be required. You probably will get pointed to the exercise guidelines which is their way of saying, 'Everything to recover will need to be done by you'. Refocus the question back to what exactly the DOCTOR is doing to get you 100% recovered. Doctor responsibility, not patient responsibility.
