How I Recovered After Stroke: Rose Brotzman's Story

Few things slow down Wayne and Rose Brotzman, not even a serious stroke. In February 2017, Rose woke in the middle of the night. She was dragging her leg and her arm wasn’t working. It was a hemorrhagic stroke (also called a brain bleed.) After care at Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Comprehensive Stroke Center at LVH-Cedar Crest, her journey to regain her independence began. Inpatient rehabilitation started before she left the hospital. After discharge, she continued with outpatient rehab at the Health Center at Palmer Township and her husband credits the team with not only helping Rose learn to swallow, eat and walk again, but also teaching him several “hacks” to make Rose’s homecoming easier. In this video, he’ll share his tips.

    It is great seeing success stories from recovering from a stroke. My wife suffered from a hemorrhagic stroke. We are in our 11th month of recovery. She is getting strong with her walking as long as she is wearing an AFO brace. We’re only getting better. Thank you for posting your video.

    I can identify with her. I had a mild stroke but I want to go back doing things myself. It’s been a little over two months ago.
