    Thanks for the input, do you know the name of the app?

    Thanks for the feedback Kelli, did you find any exercises that helped as my stroke has affected my cerebellum?
  3. Thanks for your note. Sorry to hear about your late husband Ray. The thing I struggle with the most is dizziness, hopefully that will improve over time. Unfortunately I am on my own and have to do everything myself which I have had to do from the day after my stroke, hence motivation is a constant battle with me on a daily basis specially when I hardly see any improvements. Your husband must have been pretty tough to withstand all those strokes.
  4. Thanks Becky so much for the note. Yes I managed to get over the swallowing after about 2 months and just eat normally now, no pEG etc. My biggest problem is ongoing dizziness, I have been told to do Gaze Stabilisation exercises, just started them 2 weeks ago, not sure if they will work or not, haven't noticed a change yet. I also do balance exercises, plus I walk about 2.6klms per day. Did you suffer from dizziness? If so any tips? Thank you

    Thanks Kelli, quick question how long did you do the exercises for? and how many times a day? Also did you see any improvement? I have only started 2 weeks ago, I don’t think mine is as bad as yours as I don’t have double vision and they have said it’s only when I look to the left I have nystagmus, perhaps you have some better ideas on trying to resolve the dizziness? thank you

    Hi There, I suffered a PICA stroke in September 2018 in the left cerebellar and the medulla. My biggest problem is dizziness 24 / 7, my physic and neurologist has prescribed gaze stabilisation exercises in the last few weeks, just wondering if anyone has done these and have they worked? And how long does it take? thank you,
  8. Hi There, I had my stroke on the 29/09/2018. It was a PICA stroke ischematic that affected my left cerebellar and left medulla. -I couldn’t walk as I lost my balance, which is still current, I had to learn how to sit up then learn how to walk again , which is still very unsteady to say the least -My left side is decidedly weaker than my right side now - I couldn’t swallow, hence I had a PEG inserted in my stomach, which basically is a plastic tube going externally from the outside to the inside of my stomach, I couldn’t even swallow my own salvia, after months of
