An Inspiring Comeback: A Stroke Survivor Story

An Inspiring Comeback: A Stroke Survivor Story

If you have trouble getting motivated to work out, take your inspiration from Christina Goyette. The 38-year-old stroke survivor
pumps iron everyday. She went from being paralyzed for eight weeks to being more than 90% recovered from her stroke. Christina says, “Renown helped me tremendously with their staff that always gave me hope that I will make it – that I will walk again, that I will talk again and I will eat again.” Now she is determined to get full movement back in the left side of her body. She is truly an inspiration. renown.org

    My wife who is 50 had a stroke this weekend. She is still in ICU and making progress and able to move her left side very well now. We were able to get her to the hospital within an hour of it happening. Just had MRI today and they found another clot near her brain stem, not sure what to expect now going forward, but this video gave me hope for people who have had a stroke.

    I had a stroke last year and I’ m fully recovered, the only thing is this cold sensation on my right leg, from my knee down to my toes. I wonder if you have the same problem.

    Inspiration!! I had a stroke 10 years ago at 17 it’s was a massive adjustment, paralysed on my right side and was going okay 2 years after not doing enough, I know. Then at 19 I had testicular cancer and I drunk heavily for 2 years. 5 years all clear from cancer went to Spain for 7 months, read lots and learned Spanish which I believe helps if you have speech problems but just a theory, doesn’t have to be Spanish but helped my English I think.
    Now 3 years on I’m travelling South America still got right sided weakness but I’m going to parks to do pull-ups, chin ups, one legged squats and press ups which I love doing. Recently started using my right hand/arm for as much as possible it’s been a very long, life changing journey but I enjoy it. I hiked a 3000m snowy volcano super difficult but made it, and it felt amazing.
    Anyone going through a similar thing good luck and aim at an ideal version of yourself.

    I’m currently reading stronger after a stroke and this book is amazing and an essential for the best recovery.

    your videos are amazing. Keep up the great work.
    While searching, I came across one more video on stroke- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5iCUIjtVcM – The video briefly describes the existing problem of stroke treatments and highlights the upcoming drugs that could provide relief to stroke patients. I found it very helpful and informative. Do watch it!

    what an inspirational story

  20. Detalle on August 29, 2019 at 10:08 pm

    I survived 5 simultaneous strokes. You can’t see any physical damage (face droopy or slurred speech) however, I have short term memory loss, blind from the top vision, R hand numbness and short tempered (my family and friends tell me that lol) I don’t feel like it is so, but who am I to know what the others see. I had ran about 3 miles or 4 and had just taken a shower when I began to vomit. Thankfully, I worked in the ER and lived a block away. My coworkers/friends found me and took me to the ED. Couldn’t be more great full.

    Her recovery is incredible!! I just wish we could see where she started in what shape she was when she left rehab. Best of luck to all stroke survivors!!
