Looking for good news

Hi Jackson
Five weeks can be very early stages in terms of recovery. I'm 2.5 yrs post stroke also had weakness in my arm and leg for a few weeks which returned fairly quickly. I did have numbness in my little finger for several months. One thing I did struggle with for quite a while was stairs but that was more cognitive than physical. I still have residual effects but in terms of mobility I'd say I'm recovered. I do find that if I've been very active my affected side can feel slightly weak for a couple of days but soon goes back to normal. Rachel x
