Well I have suffered one of these, confirmed by MRI, although I have difficulty in writing and playing the bass I have no facial symptoms or gross power loss on the right.
Doctor said it will return, so statins and anti thrombolytics and R and R for a month.
So much for karate, gym work and healthy eating!

Sorry to hear that.

Take it easy and relax for a bit.

After you start your "Alembic therapy", I predict you'll be feeling much better in no time.

Jimmy is absolutely correct. Patience is needed while the synapses reconnect or redirect.
You know that you can do it, you've done it before, why won't the body cooperate? Believe me, it will all come together.
Way to go dodging a major bullet. It could have been worse, no doubt.
My prayers are with you mate.

Oh dear, Terry. Hope you are on the mend, and do mind your doc's orders for R&R, that's usually the hardest one to comply with!

That was worth a double-post Slawie. I have also heard the above suggestions, that trying to play, and listening to music hastens recovery.

Terry, you hang in there brother, will be thinking of you. Hey, what the hell, now you've got a good excuse to play with a pick !! I recommend Fender Heavy 355's, (the big, manly-man triangles). Thank God you got a wake-up call. By the time you're good to go again, the warmer weather will be back, and it'll be time to fire up the FireBlade.

All the Best,

Joey

Best wishes, Terry. The guy who taught me my first chords & a box scale (and how to make chili) went through this a few years back; he's playing fine now - no lingering effects. Hope the same for you.

Terry,
Sorry to hear about your situation. Hoping for a speedy recovery. I think as soon as you are up for it you should try to play some. While your playing might not meet your expectations it will be helping to rebuild the connections needed for coordination. Just don't over do it to the point you get frustrated.

Chuck Rainey is back . You can do it!!! Get well soon. Listen to some "Electric Funk" from Jimmy McGriff, that album can heal anything.

Alembicians...I cannot thank you enough for words of support, not many people get a get well wish from one of the most sought after session bass players in the world(JJ) and the co owner of Alembic!
Today I told my sister about you all and she suggests I come and visit you as part of my recuperation!
Thanks again guys, means a lot to me!

Terry, I have been on blood thinners for quite a while. I would have offered my get well wishes sooner, but I am home recuperating from surgery. If the docs order that you take the blood thinners, feel free to contact me as I have a lot of experience with the pros and cos of specific ones. Most important, get well, and you can rehabilitate.

Terry, I have a friend who had a stroke a few years ago; he had a stutter for a couple of months and a few other tics for a bit and recovered fully...with the lucidity you are updating, you're gonna be fine, which makes us all happy...recover well and make sure you milk it for extras, whatever they may be...Tony
