About

Out of nowhere suddenly at 2009 my wife, 25 years old, diagnosed with a brain lesion which had to be removed.

In my effort to learn what is this “Brain Lesion”  and how we are going to confront it, I started searching the Internet and collecting information. After five years, a brain surgery at 2012 and almost 2 years of rehabilitation at rehabilitation centers as inpatients and outpatients, I decided to communicate what I have learned, which hopefully could help others who are anxiously trying to learn and accept what is happening to them.

I am still looking for modern Rehabilitation therapies and methods, because I never accepted the notion that there is a recovery Plateau and after 2 years of rehabilitation no progress can be made, and  profoundly believe in Neuroplasticity. The brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.

    I thought you’d like this board on Pinterest… I’m starting a group board on Pinterest to help brain injury bloggers raise their profile and make their articles easier to find. Would you be interested in be a contributor?

I am the owner and only “poster” or “contributor” of the BLOG tbirehabilitation.wordpress.com and the post are NOT about personal stories of tbi survivors and caregivres difficult times supporting loved ones.
