God bless you all.
My stroke was in March and it seems it only affected my hearing. I was really
tired afterward and only started feeling better about a month or so ago. My
good days are now more than the bad ones for which I am most grateful. My
doctor said my hearing would probably not get any better as that was one
area of the brain that usually did not regenerate. The ENT doctor said hearing
aids would not help me. I am constantly trying to do whatever I can to stimulate my brain. Trying to keep the stress level down and keeping busy.
I have not had any numbness at all except a couple of days after the stroke
my left hand had a weird touch sensation but that is all gone now.
I know that my situation is a little unusual but no less scary. My mother had a
major stroke at 63 and died that same year. Her dad had several strokes at the age of 65 so at almost 68 now I guess I tend to wonder when the next
one will come. But medicine has advanced so much since 1980. My doctor
continues to encourage me and that helps as much as anything else.
