Recently had a stoke on Labor Day caused by high blood pressure issue. Going to therapy daily, have recovered my walking unassisted skills,attributed this to low stress aerobics and Tai Chai. I'm 56 year old male, can someone in this community give me advice on recovery and what to expect long-term, remaining optimistic that I'll recover enough to pursue employment. Any advice out there to what I'll be able to do physically would be greatle appreciated.

I had a stroke because of blood pressure 4 years ago. Still have little movement in my left arm/hand. I joined a gym which has helped considerably. I ride the stationary bike, the arm bike and add new equipment each week to to move more muscles.

I continued to work, once out of rehab, as a secretary, I type one handed but it works. It wasn't easy when I started but it does get easier each day. I wish you good luck - stay positive and never give up.
