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.
