Stroke update
« on: April 05, 2008, 02:33:45 PM »
Hi!
I just thought I should give you an updated report from the recovery process. My strenth and coordination is much better now thanks to a lot of training. I have also managed to use my right hand for some picking and that's a great development.

The doctors seem have a clue to what happened and the origin of the problems is located to my heart. In order to prevent/lower the risc that this happens again I will go through a heart surgery. I will go for an initial examinition on April 11 but I don't know the surgery date yet.

The doctors have now decided NOT to do a surgery. This decision was taken after they discovered that the "hole" wasn't as big as they thought from the start. This is good news to me. Any surgery is still a small risk. I have done about one surgery a year (knees, spine, colon) since 2002 and I am very happy not to go through one more.
