Hello Steve, my name is Jan, Your stroke sounds a lot like mine! I had a clot in the right carotid artery! I have weakness on the left side,unfortunately I haven't recovered as well ad you. I want to walk so much, and be able to do just everyday normal things. It gives me hope to hear from others on the same journey, and having such good success! Glad to have you on stroke net, and I look forward to hearing about your journey! If you have any advice for us who are not as far along, I would welcome any suggestions you might have! It's so nice meeting you, and I'm very happy for your success!!
