MRI results
An_247677 posted:
I had my first stroke Sept 2010, think I had another about a month ago, took catscan first, didn't reveal enough info, so i had a MRI, the results /details of the MRI wasn't really discussed but the doctor ordered OT and PT again, did I have another stroke adjacent to the last one, the effects are pretty much the same area, restricted movement on my left side, I think the doctor should have informed me in detail on what's going on with me.

It sounds like you really need to get more information from your doctor. It is always helpful to make a list to take to your next appointment. You can call ahead and let the office know you would like to see a picture of your MRI scan and get an explanation of what it showed. Your OT and PT may be able to help you get that information for you by contacting your doctor's office. If you don't have an appointment for awhile, call and ask for an appointment at an earlier date and tell the receptionist why you want to come in early.

Good Luck.
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
