I was released from the hospital after about 3 months and from my extended Therapy in January of this year. I have, for the most part, expereinced a full recovery with no remaining deficits!! I've been busy the last few months, getting back to my former existence (you know... driving, working, etc.. again and "all that").
I AM on HBP medication and B12 Supplements (twice daily). My docs explained to me the low survival rate of my injury, so I've been seeking other folks who've had similar experiences with whom to discuss "life after stroke", but, until finding this place, had little luck.
"Thank you" to the administrators and members for this cool place to "hang out"
I am new to this forum and am glad to find it. I just had a cerebellar stroke due to ' left vertebral artery dissection' in july 2012, experiencing imbalance, incoordination on my left arm and leg and have a 'heavy' head but getting better. how long did you take for full recovery? when you say no deficits is like normal again to what you were before stroke? i am experiencing depression like symptoms just wondering whether i can get back my life. i really hope to. so wanted to chat with other survivors. thanks.
