Hi Goodney,

Glad to hear about your progress. My brother is 7 months into recovery and his habds and feet are still very weak. From your experience how long did it take you to regain basic functions with your hands. His grip strength was 0.5 and 0.6 at the beginning and is now 10 and 6 in each hand 6 months later. Normal grip strength for a 30 year old is 110 to 100. Does this slow progression make sense to you based on your experience? he has regained most core strength (including bicepts and thighs), but does it make sense that the core has improved rapidly compared to his hands which are still very bad.

Let me know what you think,
