Re: 34 yr old just had stroke, doctors are stumped

Most definately agree to get the current clot and immediate health issues focused on...once that is straightened out, you can refocus and recouping from the stroke. I had a stroke during brain surgery when I was only 22years old, I was paralyzed on my left side. It took a few months to get the basics back, a year or two for finer things, and a few years for the last quirks worked out. Acupuncture helped w/ some of the sensations. But now I'm 32 and prob 95% all me again, no one would know. I'd gone back to college a year after the ordeal and made straight A's and now have a successful career in Corp Finance......don't give up, be patient and just give yourself lots of love!
