Hi...question number three.
My mother recently suffered a stroke. The doctors seem confident that she'll recover quite well, with possibly a limp.
I was wondering about jobs and how many of you still work after having a stroke. I imagine my mother won't feel like working for a long time and she works for a great place with great people and a system in place to replace her until she's ready to come back. But, I imagine that if she recovers as well as expected, she'll want to go back to work. I just read another post that made it sound as if most people who have had a stroke do not return to work.
Her job is a bit challenging mentally, but not physically; she could sit in a chair all day if that's what she needed. So, as long her cognitive abilities return (they are not there at present) and her speech as well, I don't see any reason why she wouldn't be ABLE to work, but it sounds like many stroke patients are eventually fired? I can't imagine.
