A close family member of mine had what was deemed a "moderate sroke" 2 months ago. The doctors seemed to expect a promising recovery but so far, little improvement has been shown. He is in intense physical therapy. He still cannot sit up easily because of problems with balance. He still cannot stand without LOTS of assistance. He can take only a few steps with a walker and that is with lots of assistance also. His strength seems to vary tremendously from day to day. Has anyone else been this disabled by a stroke and recovered enough to be able to get up and around and be able to walk (even with a walker)?? I would really appreciate hearing from anyone with information
similar to this.
Sue
