Avatar f tn He had craniotomy surgery. my question has anyone fully recovered after such surgery?
Avatar n tn Stroke Prevention The FDA recommends regular aspirin use to prevent a stroke in people who have suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA or mini-stroke). Aspirin also helps prevent a second or recurrent stroke and, as with heart attacks, lessens the damaging effects of a stroke that does occur.
Avatar n tn There are a few avenues for exploration with your Mother. Firstly did she start any new medication directly after surgery? if so, have a look at the side effects for that medication. Secondly, traumatic surgery such as a bypass can really affect people in different ways. Some have been noticed to be depressed, some simply withdraw into themselves and become quiet, and others present no changes at all. The effects of surgery are different for everyone.
Avatar f tn A friend of mine just had an endoscopic cervical discectomy and as a result suffered a vertebral artery occlusion. Less than 24 hours after being released from the hospital he experienced dizziness, weakness in his right side and numbness in his face. He returned to the ER where they admitted him and performed an MRI that showed the occlusion. Basically, he had a mini stroke or tia but Dr's said no damage to the cerebellum. He was released and ordered to take aspirin.
Avatar n tn Mini stroke (TIA) represents temporary stroke warning symptoms. A stroke can be impairment of sensation, level of consciousness, balance, or voluntary motion caused by a rupture or obstruction of an artery in the brain. In short: a stroke is a brain attack. TIA is not a full-blown stroke, but mimics one as you suggest. An Electrocardiogram (EKG) to confirm a regular heart rate, blockage of electrical impulses through the heart, etc.
Avatar f tn are ct scans any use at all and if it was mini stroke would it not have shown something.
Avatar f tn I believe that the greatest risk is your likelihood of a full blown stroke, which of course can be life threatening. A TIA (mini stroke) is usually considered a warning sign by Doctors that something needs to be addressed. I assume they have given you medication to help lower the risk of a clot forming? such as aspirin?
Avatar n tn There are a few theories to what happens to the brain during surgery but one that many accept is the mini mini stroke. When vessels are clamped, tiny pieces of plaque probably break free and end up in the brain cause very tiny strokes. One thing I have to ask is if you are on statin medication? Some patients have been reported to have memory problems from this, for example, one Doctor wrote of a patient who was an accountant and lost the ability to do math.
Avatar n tn After my second surgery I was weaned off the medicine and after being completely off of it for a couple days the arrythmia started up again. I had the procedures done in Canada at the University of Alberta Hospital. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.
Avatar m tn I was told it was a possible mini stroke. Then an MRI was done and was told I have multiple infarctions on the brain moreso on the right than the left. It states that I have chronic microvascular disease of the brain and am to see a neurologist this week to determin if it actually was a mini stroke. I am also told I have post concussive syndrome, causing my dizziness and fatigue. Can the impact of the accident cause a mini stroke if I have microvascular disease?
Avatar f tn Although a stroke can manifest as a transient visual disturbance, that is relatively unusual. But something is going on, and you best have it checked out. Anything having to do with vision is VERY important. You cannot be turned down for medical assistance in the event of possible blindness because of financial reasons. If it happens? Good! Take them to court! (Just make sure that you sue for the cost of a chauffer).
Avatar m tn I am 78 and had a mini stroke 11 Jun 2014. I was placed in the hospital for overnight observation and was released the following day to my family doctor. I have high blood pressure so he placed me on Exforge 10-325-25mg HCT and also Clopidogrel 75mg In the hospital I had a MRA, MRI, CATSCAN, Chest Xray and several blood tests. I lost peripheral vision in the left eye. When I left the hospital I had this slight lump across from my left ear about 1 inch long pointing to the top of my head.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that without me realizing it that I may have had a mini stroke and not know it or am I over reacting? Since then my blood pressure has been 150/90.
Avatar n tn This past July I had to stop take Plavix of 7 days for a surgery i was going to have, It went well but when I woke up I have had a stroke, but after 24 hours all the sideaffects went away and the Doc's called it a TIA, (mini stroke)so things like that can happen, good luck

Avatar f tn He has had 2 spells since where he was hospitalized, they did not know the first time if it was a mini stroke, on the second time they ruled out mini strokes and diagnosed him with seizures. He was put on seizure meds, the dosage has been changed 3 times. He seems to be doing well now. But he does nothing, he don't get dressed lots of days, he watches TV or sleeps. He was never like this before, he has been outside a couple of times, to ride the mower. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn I'm glad your husband's BP is coming down. I am not a doctor, so I have no idea what could have happened. Maybe a mini-stroke? I just don't know, sorry. Was he on BP meds BEFORE this happened? What is he taking now? I'll keep him in my prayers...
Avatar n tn I am a 65 year old woman. I had a mini stroke. I suffered wity double vision for 8 hours. No one can tell me why. I have gone through many tests. I have a small part of the double vision trying to come back, I just feel it. I hope you all the luck in the world, and will pray for you.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I was discharged from a stroke unit in the uk yesterday after having a mini ischaemic stroke which I was frombolised for. When I was first admitted my troponin levels were at 365, dropping to 190 over a 4 day period. I'm unsure of the level now but I imagine it's lower. But I know healthy people are supposed to have no reading. I'm a 29 year old, otherwise healthy female - no drinking smoking or drugs. No history of strokes in the family.
Avatar n tn Sort of a mini stroke. There are atheroschelotic deposits in the carotids of some people and you should have had a carotid ultrasound before the procedure, which, I am sure, they didn't do. Shhhhh. The clot blocked off the blood supply and the nerve atrophied. It isn't that uncommon. They needed to administer clot dissolves, of which there are several (streptokinease being one of them) but they were on space chips and did not properly observe you during the post-surgical period.
Avatar f tn In the past 9 months, I have experienced drooping on the left side of my mouth - 2 occasions - last July and now in April. It was thought I was having a mini stroke but all tests were normal. Do you thinks the drooping is due to the trauma I received in 2012? What can be done about this?
Avatar n tn He recently had a stent placed in the Basilar artery which was blocked 75% also before surgery. He had a stroke after the procedure which has left him paralized on his left side. The question is how dangerous is it to leave the other arteries like they are?
Avatar f tn My Mother was recently diagnosed as probably having had a mini stroke or something similar. What would something similar be? Also, could a situation that caused a person to panic cause a stroke?
Avatar f tn i am a 42 year old female. last year i had a tia (mini stroke) followed by severe fatigue, migraines, bone pain, shaking chills with no fever, pale skin and ringing in my ears. they found I have several vitamin deficiencies in b12, folic acid, D and iron but it is unknown as to why. I have had multiple blood tests, any you can imagine, including for leukemia and all negative. i have high leukocytes on the regular and daily runny nose qith occasional sore throat.
Avatar f tn Personally I would have though dizziness/nausea could be a TIA (mini stroke). It is unlikely that an MI would stop after 2 hours. I would explain your symptoms to a Doctor and have a CT scan of your head just to be on the safe side, especially as it runs in the family.
Avatar f tn There is no blockage in carotid artery ,no mini stroke,Had a nuclear stress test which went very well. All things related to heart is great. I exercise regular at gym.Was told no reason for this to happen but it did.They said my blood pressure had dropped very low during surgery but didn't think that was the cause.I was told that this blockage was very rare but has been known to happen.
