"I had my first follow up with a neurologist. Dr. Weaver here in Memphis...had to get a cat scan today," said Lawler. "He said 'let me show you your brain and your brain damage.' I said 'what?' and he said 'take a look.'...there was a dark spot on it about the size of a quarter," he added.

Lawler went on to say his doctor told him the placement of his brain damage was a critical reason he was not experiencing any side effects. He also said his doctor won't need to see him anymore regarding the stroke.
