A stroke is not something you prepare for. So you're going to have a lot of questions when it happens. That's why The Stroke Association are here to help. They have lots of information to help you understand what's happened and get the support you need.
They've tackled some of the questions that you're likely to have, including details of how to find out more.
Because a stroke happens so quickly, often people leave hospital without being completely sure what's happened or why. But it's important that you are. You need to understand what a stroke is and the things that can make it more likely to happen, so that you can do all you can to reduce the risk of it happening again.
Will I get better?
Because every stroke is different, there is no set pattern for recovering from one. So it can be difficult to say how well or how quickly you'll recover.
It's likely that you'll see some immediate recovery in the first few days and weeks after your stroke. After this early burst of recovery, progress tends to slow down. This is normal and doesn't mean that you won't recover any further.
Getting better will involve rehabilitation, which is about overcoming and adapting to the effects of your stroke. Your therapists will give you exercises and advice to help your relearn abilities you have lost and how you new ways of doing things. Starting your rehabilitation as soon as possible after your stroke will help to avoid further problems from developing and give you the best chances for recovery.
