Youth does wonders: Having had a lacunar stroke at 22 offers a much better prognosis than at later age of 62 or 72. Especially with some of the amazing things we are finding out about how the brain can adapt and "take up the slack" from other infarcted areas. Persistent and intense exercise therapy should be encouraged. They say after 12 months wysiwyg? I don't believe that at all..Keep working. You go girl!
