Surviving Stroke : The Story of a Neurologist and His Family, Paperback / softback Book

Surviving Stroke : The Story of a Neurologist and His Family Paperback / softback


In October 2016, Udo Kischka suffered a severe stroke.

A large intra-cerebral bleed, a bleed deep in the right side of his brain.

He was not a typical stroke patient: Professor Kischka was a neurologist and specialist in stroke rehabilitation.

Like all stroke patients, he embarked on a journey of recovery.

In his case, it was a re-education in his field of expertise.

When he uttered the words, 'This is a life changing event' to his wife a few hours after the stroke, he had no idea just how life changing it would be or that there would be still be a good life to be had.

Written by experts on both sides of the fence - a stroke victim who is a stroke specialist, and a psychologist who helps others and now has to help herself and her family - this is a personal and brutally honest story of a family's survival.

This accessible and relatable book provides insight and realistic hope about what might lie ahead following a stroke, as well as offering both practical and emotional support.
