sounds like the doc could have been more aggressive and got you a catscan sooner. if they catch a stroke within 3 hours you could have gotten the TPA drug to help with the blood clot. but i am not a doc-just a family member who is still going through the process of stroke (dad) and has read up on stroke for hours and hours.
Sorry to hear about your stroke :(
Given that you woke with the symptoms, the three hour tPA window had already passed as it is three hours from when you last had no sypmtoms. In your case this would be the time you went to sleep.
May I suggest you now focus on your recovery? If you keep working at it you will improve. No one knows how much but keep at it.
I'm ~17 months post & have improvements all the time, my walking keeps improving. I've almost given up my stick! The first year can be pretty hard but try to do as much as you can, whilst still getting lots of rest to prevent overwhelming fatigue.
