In August 2013 I had a spontaneous iCAD stroke, over the next few weeks I plan to add some stroke survivor experiences to this page to help fellow survivors. In the meantime, if you are a stroke survivor please feel free to get in touch (my contact details are on my home page) - I am a member of the Different Strokes group on Facebook
I had my stroke while on my bicycle and at the time I had an App running on my phone - you can see the data here, and for all the data geeks out there - you can work out where I had my stroke and how long it took the ambulance to arrive.
I was very well looked after for the two months I spent in the Royal Leamington Spa Rehabilitation Hospital (now called the Central England Rehabilitation Unit). I helped some of my carers write a paper on factors which may affect malnutrition in stroke sufferers within a hospital setting" - which we have submitted to the journal Stroke
