In Reply to: sex drive after a stroke. posted by Jack on June 14, 2000 at 15:37:13:

: This is not a joke. I had my stroke 11 months ago. I am a 28 year old male. I had the stroke at the age of 27. I have a beautiful wife. I have 2 gorgeous daughters 1 & 3 years old, my only reasons to continue on. I came out of my stroke (right brain left side paralysis) with a severely increased sex drive. I never said a word to any of my doctors out of embarrasment. I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem. My wife is not interested in sex anymore. I'm thinking it was something chemically wrong in my brain caused by the stroke. It has now subsided after about 9 months past the stroke. I think I have it under control. I was an athlete before the stroke, and never had a hard time with the ladies. I have lost my self pride with the stroke, I used to lift weights with a bench press over 300 pounds. I was a collegiate track and field athlete. My sytroke was caused by a blood clot that formed on an artificial heart valve I received from a valve transplant when I was 21. I am now looking for work to support my young family. I just can't believe my wife has stuck through this. She could do so much better then an unemployed out of shape half paralyzed man. I have not found any support anywhere my friends have moved on without me. My parents recently went through a divorce (unrelated to my stroke. Life has really sucked, My stroke doctor only sees me once every three months. My therapists told me I'd be better off doing therapy on my own 6 months after my stroke. I have been making strides on my own in the gym. I couldn't even grip a bar 3 months ago, now I can bench press 135 pounds 10 times on the right day. I hope to gain strength back, it's just so frustrating. Please reply to my message it takes forever to type with 1 hand.
