the vascular surgeon and nuroligists explained that it doesn't nessarily die
but becomes disconnected as the connecting... snyapses, or whatever they are
called that conduct the instructions are intterrupted, and if given enough
time and pt you can often reroute the paths for things like motor skills
and thinking and speech... Lee

Marion had a stroke two years ago. Seemed fairly minor with very

she didn't get back to a reasonable energy level for a year. There
doesn't seem to be much hard knowledge about post-stoke tiredness -
Marion participated in a study in Edinburgh that was led by a doctor
from Central Asia who seems to be one of the few people in the world
to make it his main focus of research. But no useful results yet.


A friend of mine had a stroke several years ago, and the same thing
happened with her. It was considered a "mini" stroke, and didn't cause
her any problems with motor function, language or memory. But her
thinking got a lot slower, and she was utterly exhausted. I remember
thinking at the time that tiredness was an odd post-stroke symptom.
After surgery, or a debilitating illness, sure. But a stroke? Sounds like
a lot of doctors think the same way, and that this is under-researched
area of medicine.


Even a "small stroke" is bad news. Part of the brain has died.
