We are so glad to have you join Connect, and even happier to know that that you are doing well after your stroke. You've landed in the right group, and I'm sure @lsatenst1@beachgal8 and others will return to share their experiences with you.
I think you might be interested in watching this video Q&A with Dr. Brott, about strokes, too:

@cinderella28, I did see your message in the other discussion group, "Stroke survivor - always hungry" and also noticed you're a good cook! Has the increased appetite ever been a problem for you?
