  8. I sure know what you are going through i could not raise my left arm without having severe pain I thought somehow that I had a torn muscle in the shoulder I had a good O.T who was able to get me through it she put a muscle cream called Biofreeze on the shoulder along with a warm towel before every therapy session with a lot of stretching exercises I was finally able to get through it for pain I used tylenol with codeine since you use tylenol you might also see if you could use Norco it is a little stronger just know that the pain wiill go away it does take some endurance to get through it i wish you all the best on your recovery we all know that the journey of Rehab takes a lot of patience and hard work

    I too am glad that no one was hurt in the accident angels were watching over the situation I agree with you Fred if we give all of our cares to God he is more than able to meet our every need all he asks of us is to have faith and trust in him. God Bless you all I am Bill.

  11. i had a massive right side cva from a blood clot the doctors originally called it a cryptogenic stroke which is a stroke of unknown origin i am seeing a neurologist who suspected that given my age at the time of the stroke 59yrs and non smoker no high blood presssure or high colesterol he had me tested for a PFO Patent Forman this is a hole in the heart that everyone is born with in most people the hole closes in on it's own i underwent a bubble test where air is put into the blood in the heart if the bubbles show up making it to the brain then the PFO exists and most likely the cause of the blood clot I will be having the hole repaired I'm just glad that the reason for the stroke has been found my name is Bill

    my name is Bill I had a stroke in June of 2011 I prayed when I had my stroke that God would not let me die and even though the doctors said that it was a miracle that I didn't die the stroke was so massive I should be severally disabled with a lot of therapy I regained use of my left hand and left leg and can walk without any assistance i said all of ttell you how much God loves all of us I will be praying that the right guy will come into your life I hope you get out of the hospital soon I was 6 weeks in the hospital an 4 months in health care facilities nursing homes etc. for rehab I know its not fun just have faith that better days are ahead

    all I can say is I agree100% hat you need to trust in God he will provide all your needs my stroke was so massive I know i would have died if it wasn't for all the prayers that were said for me I am Bill don't ever lose faith
  15. i had a massive right side cva stroke doctors could not give me a reason why I got a blood clot that moved into my brain I was pu t on blood pressure medicine for a while which made me tired all the time i would wake up in the morning si t in my recliner and want to fall back to sleep once I got off the medicine it got better but I would still tire easily I was told that the brain healing will take process will take a long time and i need to take naps to rest my brain when it is tired my whole body shuts down and I use to get depressed and I was put on Zoloft an antidepressant I try to take each day in stride and keep a positive attitude I know God has brought me through this far I was told by the Neuro surgeon who took a large piece of my skull out on the right side of my head to a llow my brain to swell he said the stroke was so massive that I should have died and since I did'nt I should be severally disabled I have regained the use of my left arm and leg i am able to walk but still working on getting the leg stronger I get tired easily when I walk for a long time so for the past 2 yrs post stroke I has been quite a journey and it continues with Gods help I am Bill and remember as the brain heals hopefully the fatigue will get better keep a positive attitude
