    It is very difficult to give advice on the type of rehabilitation program you would need without actually examining you. There is no question that exercise is important and people can continue to improve for years after a stroke. I like to have patients check in every few months with a rehabilitation physician and therapist to see if their program should be modified. If you haven't done that yet, I would make an appointment to see if you should be adding anything to your program. Good luck.
