I am. 5 months post stroke and feeling anxious at how slow recovery is. I am age 40 and the stroke 4 months after having a baby.From a medical point of view they consider me doing really well. The stroke mainly affected my vision (reduced colour and sharpness)and balance and I have also have fatigue with anxiety. What concerns me is that most doctors say 6 months is when most imrprovement takes place. I appreciate every stroke is different but I would like to know others experience. I know I am lucky to have full motor function but I cam find little information on the symptoms I have. Finally my stroke is due theythink to a pfo ( small hole in heart) which is due to be closed in a month,does anyone have experience of this?
