Godspeed my friend!! I'm told the best way to recover from a stroke is to get back into physical activity as soon as you're able. Don't overdo it, but don't sit idle either. If you can walk, get up and play. Pool is a wonderful activity for developing motor skills and hand/eye coordination. Of course do everything your doctor advises, but if possible, get up and play. You may never be as good as you were, but you know what? That's perfectly ok!! Best wishes!


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow idiotic comment like this worthy!

The human body's ability to heal is amazing and Dr.'s don't know everything. Have faith and work hard, you will be rewarded! I wish you a super speedy full recovery.

Very sorry to here about your stroke. I've had a few and after the first one I couldn't move any of my arms or legs. I was one of the lucky ones as after 2 days I started to be able the move my right side and in about three weeks I was walking on my own. Now I play pool 3-4 hours a day on my home table. Only things that didn't come back are brain related like I used to jump out of planes and mountain climb. Now I would have to call 911 to get me off a 20' roof. I've had a lot of other changes like crying watching a sad movie. Before the strokes I never cried over anything. My wife says I'm a much better person now.

Hang in there and never give up. I know rehab if tough, but in the end it will be worth it. Johnnyt


Never Give Up

Mike,

Don't know how much you can recover but the brain has some amazing powers.

Stay on the forum, keep us up to date on your improving progress. Positive thoughts headed your way. Chin up.

Good luck in your recovery.

Let's hope your post inspires others to take advantage of the health they have, not wish they had once it's too late. The forecast looks to be 43 degrees tomorrow, so I think I'll get out & go for a walk with my daughter.
