    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi Dessy and welcome!

    It sounds like you absolutely need to find another physician who can work with you on stroke rehabilitation and prevention.

    We have a community with an excellent expert here: WebMD Stroke Community . Dr. Senelick is a physician specializing in both neurology and the subspecialty of neurorehabilitation.

    Please pop over there to ask questions and express your concerns about your diagnosis and treatment. I know Dr. Senelick will have information that you can use when working with your health care provider.

    Best of luck to you -

    Haylen
