I have only lost some feeling on my left side, still in the hospital, but my rigs are still crunching

Make sure you take advantage of all the recovery therapy you can after a stroke because it'll maximise the chance of you re-gaining what you lost, but it needs to be done as soon as possible.

Good luck!

I hope you recover soon. I don't know if your health insurance covers it, but look into a rehab facility where physical and occupational therapy are available. Home visits should be available too.

It was a mild stoke. It affected the feeling of my left side. Based on testing (I an in a "progressive rehab unit" at Kaiser and some of the feeling is coming back.

Here's to a speedy recovery!

On a side note, do any of the rehab stuff they offer after your hospital visit. My grandpa didn't do his and it was to his detriment.
Its listed as "progressive care unit" but so far its just evaluating my progress.
