Later, while deployed overseas, Granado was riding in the turret of his Fast Attack Vehicle. The driver of the vehicle hit a bump at high speed, causing Granado to fall out of the vehicle, hitting his head on the turret during the process. He was placed on medications for migraine headaches and discharged from the Marines.
In late 2009, Granado’s medication for migraines and PTSD was changed and he had a stroke.
The aftereffects left him with a severe stutter, issues with his balance and he was unable to participate in activities that he loved prior to his stroke like fishing and camping with his son and coaching his son’s ball team. After 40 hyperbaric treatments, he has had improvement with balance, reduction in the frequency and severity of his headaches and his stutter is completely gone. “I want to get back to a normal, productive life,” Stated Granado.
