: : : I am now in the 10th month after my stroke and I am getting better:I can walk, talk (thanks to a lot of help from my speech therapist), etc. I am supposed to be starting school in September and I was wondering if anyone else has gotten a 100% better after the stroke, because I hope to (one day I hope to be able to drive again)?

: : Hi Pooky,

: : I have just passed 9 months since my stroke. It was a particularly nasty one, the gran-daddy of all strokes I call it. If I survived I was expected to be nothing better than a vegetable.

: : The stroke was a Bilateral Cebellar Infarcts, bilateral means that it affected both sides of my brain in the cerebellum area, infarcts means that a piece of my brain died as a result of starvation of oxygen and blood from the arterial clot. This was complicated with a haemorage between the cerebellum and brain stem.

: : Today my recovery is 100%. I am walking normally without aid, talking normally and have no known memory problems. I have my driving licence back and I am working 3 days a week at present. (network specialist in data communications)

: : It does happen but not often. I believe my odds are about one in a million.

: : Good luck, keep up with the therapy and make it the second. Peter

: to p brown thank you for posting your message about 100% recovery it gives me some hope i had my stroke in feb of '99 doctors called it massive and said i probably would not live i am left-side paralyzed walk with a quad cane and hope to walk without aids i want to drive aginn so bad but my field of vision cannot meet state mins

Mary,

I am glad that it has given you hope. All I can say is don't ever give up, keep up the therapy. As far as my vision goes I suffered from diplopia (double vision). I dont know if it was the stroke or the operation which caused it. It took 6 months to clear to a point where I was able to pursue driving thankfully without another operation. 7 months before I got my licence back.
Peter
