    I am so thankful for how amazing brains are! I am almost 100% after my stroke 6 years ago.

    I got lucky because I had my stroke in the hospital (I was a director of finance at a major hospital). I got in my office on Monday at 8 am and couldn’t speak by 8:15 am. I was admitted right there and got MRIs and medication by 3 pm (they made me wait because the ER is busy).
    I thank God because I was inside an hospital and the consequences could have been worse. It’s been 10-11 months (incident happened in 2018) and I am still struggling with speech (I’d say I am 80% there), words, memory, and problems in a couple of cognitive areas. I am 59.

    thumbs up for Stanford! However, we all suffer strokes all over the world, please keep this in mind, all humans, not only from the vicinity, not from the continent, we can only pray our doctors will have similar approach! Thanks for sharing this very insightful video!

    There is a technical inaccuracy here. Paraphrased: "If we reprofuse the penumbra, those neurons come back." Reestablishing blood supply is essential, but it will not help unless clinicians help the survivor reestablish cortical control over the returning billions of neurons. This process is reviewed here:

    Thank you. This is wonderful. So interesting. I survived a hemorrhagic, and an ischemic in the same place four months after.

    I had a stroke 2011 on the left side of my brain. When I was in the hospital they decided to do a body scan to see if I had blood colts in my leg or traveling in my body. I could move both arms and both legs before the scan. Once the scan finished and I was in the waiting room I felt my body shut down, my right side would not move. I became paralyzed on my right side and needed rehab. Prior to coming to the hospital my balance was off, when I tried to sit on the toilet I would tilt over and fall to the floor. A small portion of my brain was affected but I could still speak even though my stroke was on the left side of my brain. I have recovered about 80% – regained walking, movement in hand and arm. I would like to regain more recovery of my right side and would like to participate in a new stroke therapy at Stanford if possible.
