Chris Fountain, a former cast member of Coronation Street, has posted on social media to commemorate one year since having a stroke.
In August of last year, the actor who played Tommy Duckworth on the ITV serial opera experienced a mini-stroke.
The celebrity stated he “feared life as he knew it” after having a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) brought on by a blood clot on his brain.
The following year, Fountain shared a picture of himself in a hospital bed on his Instagram Stories with the caption: “One year ago today. In a second, life may change.
“Things have gotten so much better,” he said, “but I’ve had to make a lot of changes.
No matter how difficult things become, remain as optimistic as you can, enjoy life to the fullest, and never give up.
Chris also considered his development during the previous 12 months. It’s been a bit strange for me to process, he admitted. Am I going to have another one today?, a part of me wonders.
In October 2022, Fountain remembered struggling to speak one morning in August.
“I just couldn’t believe it, there was a moment of sheer panic just fearing what it meant for the rest of my life,” he recalled.
The left side of my brain, which is where your cognitive functions are governed, has some damage, according to the physicians.
Additionally, the actor underwent cardiac surgery to close a hole that had enabled a blood clot to flow to his brain.
