    One of our members from South Africa submitted the following:


    I have had a brain stem stroke 2 1/2 years ago and I have bad balance. I do my exercises and have gained small amounts. Does balance suddenly come back?


    Survivors, what do you think?

      Balance doesn’t suddenly come back it is a work in progress and since you have made progress by doing exercises I suggest that you should continue to do the exercises as shown by your therapist and your balance will come back with exercises and time. One thing that I learned from the stroke is to be patient with myself and trust the healing process it doesn’t happen overnight. It will come back even if it is not completely 100% you are going to have to be able to do with what you have achieved over time. One thing that shouldn’t happen is falling. I once fell and it put me on a wheelchair for 6 months and it was hell for me.
