Struggling to stand for long period

I'm glad I'm not the only one...! I can barely lift my foot off the ground most of the time...:-(

Hi Kay

Thanks for that information I will try and find those exercises, everything is useful. I had my stroke  2yrs ago and I do find standing for long periods hard but I now find my balance has got worse since lockdown. Has anyone else had this? My stroke was a bleed, does that make a difference?

15 months after a stroke and left with right side weakness I find it hard to stand for long such as when preparing a meal or chatting to someone at the door. I wonder if its the effort of maintaining balance when still as walking feels easier on flat ground with a stick......

I'm sorry to hear this Peter, sending you best wishes for the future.
