Im new to this

Hi my first stroke was on 30th Nov 2022, i was out on a shooting estate working my picking up dog, we had returned for lunch when i collapsed, no pre warning.
I spent a week in hospital where i was recovering well.
In Jan 2023 i took my 2nd, this left me back to square 1,this time everything is taking longer my speech has been affected and my right side.
I have weights to strenghen my right arm and leg and i am using a grip strengthening device.

@spwilloughby hi & welcome to the forum. Sorry you’ve had 2 strokes. How frustrating when you think you’re doing ok then end back at square one.

Recovery can take longer than we would like & patience is required. I’m sure you’ll do ok though. You seem to be doing good things to help.

Look forward to hearing more from you.

Best wishes


Hi @spwilloughby

Sorry to read that you’ve had a need, (or two!) to join us. it’s the best of clubs, and with no waiting list!!

You’ll find the crowd here welcoming, knowledgeable & always empathetic. You’ll get perspective by reading and searching the categories, threads & posts. This is a good place to ask questions, celebrate achievement, rant when you need to and share journey.

Does “to trade” and “took my 2nd [stroke]” suggest Scottish?
