I remember once in rehab my PT was talking about another patient that she was treating that had an acoustic neuroma(brain tumor) and had a stroke during brain surgery. Don’t have brain surgery people, you’re likely to have a stroke. But if you need brain surgery, you need it, don’t listen to me. Anyway, sometimes my therapists talked to me like I knew something and my PT said to me “I never treated her for the acoustic neuroma.” Well, no you wouldn’t/couldn’t treat her for that, you would treat her for the brain damage and ensuing effects that the brain damage caused. But I didn’t correct her because some people still don’t think I know anything and REALLY didn’t think I knew anything then. Like I’ve said before, it doesn’t matter where in the brain you have damage. It doesn’t matter if it’s the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, occipital lobe, or cerebellum. It doesn’t matter if it’s damage from a hemorrhage or a blood clot. No kind of damage is worse than any other. The EFFECTS are going to vary GREATLY but brain damage is brain damage. A stroke is a stroke.
