    I want to know how I can get my hand to function again I had made great progress in the first year post stroke until I had a seizure which left my hand and wrist non functional and ever since then I have had a number of interventions but I still haven’t regained the use of my hand and even though I believe that I will regain the se of my hand sometimes I get scared that I may not get it back to what it was before but I will continue to do exercises shown to me by the various therapists I have been to in the past. I saw someone in some group talking about how their GP referred them to a specialised stroke rehab hospital where they did a 3 weeks treatment and the lady who wasn’t able to walk in heels was able to do that after the treatment. There was talk of a special stroke hospital being built in South Africa and I would like to know if there is any hope of the therapist there bringing in treatments that have worked for stroke survivors all over the world.

      25 years post stroke and Rita regains some movement!!! WOW now that message needs to be broadcast to stroke survivors and Healthcare professionals worldwide…don’t give your stroke recovery a time frame, we are all unique and respond differently…rather let that be a standard response.

      Kele, I understand how anxious it feels.

      Let me share a video from one of Strokefocus’ cofounders, Rita. She started
      moving her fingers 25 years after stroke:

      Rita has only one secret share: never give up.
