1344197 tn?1392819171 The majority of hysterectomies are preformed in women before menopause and the removal of ovaries after the age of 40 is common. The removal of ovaries is often recommended as a measure to reduce the risk of developing ovarian cancer. A number of studies have suggested that hysterectomy with the removal of ovaries prior to age 50 may increase the risk for heart attack and stroke.
Avatar m tn The study included 40 healthy men, between the ages of 55 and 70, who had no heart disease risk factors. Ten of the men had never exercised for more than two hours a week. The remaining 30 had exercised for at least seven hours a week for more than five years, either beginning before age 30 or after age 40. Their regular exercise involved either cycling or running.

Avatar n tn stroke after surgery might be not restarting an aspirin a day if you were on it before surgery. Once a stroke has occurred, the immediate damage, for the most part, is done. The key issue at that point and in your case is to prevent further more debilitating strokes from occurring. : You should see your primary care physician regarding the recent stroke for : a complete workup and management of risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking, for starters.

Avatar n tn There is for this reason a much higher rate of neurological complications with this kind of surgery, but this is acceptable because the risk of death from the surgery is so high. It may be that they gave him so much sedation over the last two days that it is going to take him several more days to recover his bearings. This is usually seen in the elderly who may be slow metabolizers of sedatives.
Avatar n tn Hello, There are certain risk factors which may increase a person’s chances of having a stroke after bypass surgery. The inflammatory process and hypercoagulability after surgery puts a person at risk which peaks two days after the surgery. If one is able to identify the etiology of this postoperative risk factor for stroke it can lead to better management of patient with risk of stroke. Your husband’s mental status is affected significantly and he is in coma.
Avatar f tn you need to be evaluated by a physician for any concomitant risk factors which could jeopardize and put you at risk of a stroke. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn My aunt aged 70 is hospitalised due to brain stem stroke and is in ICU. She is yet to regain the consciousness and is still on ventilator. Doctors have stated that there is very little improvement. As of now she lost her limb movements, swallowing capacity and eyelid movements. Though she is chronic diabetic and had bye pass surgery six years back her major organs are functioning normally. It is not clear how long she will be like this. At what point of time recovery process will set in?
Avatar n tn He recently was diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. The surgeon did not recommend surgery because of the risk of stroke with the general anesthesia and spinal tap. Is the risk of stroke or other complications under anesthesia significantly higher for him? If he needs emergency surgery, is this a major concern? Thank you.
Avatar m tn The echo ran after the stroke was normal and showed an ejection fraction of 70%. I follow a really health lifestyle including vigorous cardio on a daily basis. I follow a low-fat, low-salt, and low sugar diet. I do not smoke and do not consume alcohol. My most recent body fat calculation was 12%.
Avatar n tn s what the doctors said. However, three days after the intervention she suffered an ischemic stroke leaving her left side of the body paralised. I was wondering could there be a connection between anything performed during the surgery and the stroke? Could there be a connection between the local anesthesia and the stroke for example? Also, she has a cataract at her right eye. She hopes that she can undergo a second surgery for this eye. What would you recommend?
Avatar n tn The transcranial doppler (TCD) that your neurologist used for counting micro-emboli is a relatively recent test that is believed to be predictive of the risk of stroke in high-risk cardio-embolic situations, such as yours.
Avatar n tn I am a 41yr old female diabetic who in Sept 2006 had a heart attack followed by a quadruple bypass. Within 1 week after surgery I had a bleed into my left lung from one of the graft sites which was corrected with surgery. While still in the hospital, I had trouble breathing and had to have surgery on my right lung to remove inflammatory tissue and fluid.
755322 tn?1330269114 I feel my brain is sharper in that I can concentrate for longer periods of time than before. My over all fatigue is better but not as good as just after the procedure. I have slipped back a bit over the year. Walking is worse. I am not sure clearing internal jugular blockages and blockages in the Azygos vein has much to do with walking performance. It helped in the beginning a bit, but that could have been a placebo effect. My walking has deteriorated pretty badly.
Avatar n tn He was doing well in rehab and then had carotid surgery 9/6/07. After surgery he was sedated for two weeks and developed double pneumonia. He was taken off sedation 9/20/07 but is unresponsive to commands. He was given a CT scan and it showed there was no new stroke. What could be the cause of the unresponsiveness?
483733 tn?1326798446 t sure if they are going to be able to do this at the same time due to the emergency nature of this. They had planned on doing surgery in the next few weeks that would involve both items. Mom lives out in Manitoba with my brother and his family so is very frustrating that I can't be there for her and that I didn't get a chance to speak to her (speaking is via email or chat since she is quite deaf so can't even call her in the hospital) before she went in.
347645 tn?1283220742 I'm going in tomorrow to have a part of my body removed no matter what they put back in it won't be how I was made....BUT BABY I WILL LOOK GOOD!!!! (GIGGLES)) I'M SORRY I JUST HAD TO MAKE A LITTLE JOKE OUT OF THIS. BLESS ALL OF YOU!
Avatar m tn Such a high risk is normally associated with people who have previously suffered a stroke. A 1 in 5 risk for stroke does seem a bit high. I have to admit I would be thinking twice with a risk that high, especially if you don't have severe symptoms.
Avatar n tn Another cardiologist recommended that he stay on medical management, due to high risk of stroke or other neurological problems during surgery. Also, I have come across a lot of info on the Web as to many instances of brain damage caused during CABG. As a result, I am hesitant to go in for surgery (given that he developed complications even after a relatively simpler procedure, namely the angiography). I came across Dr.
1613327 tn?1298393489 is this safe to do this surgery while on coumadin???? Seems the bleeding risk is greater than the stroke risk......I also have high BP....
Avatar f tn bout the size of a grape doing surgery via nose Has anyone had complications afterwards.
Avatar m tn If a vessel is 100% blocked (not 90 or 95%), it is very hard to do anything with a stent to it, and due to risk of sending some of the blockage further into the brain, the risk of stroke is very high and likely not of benefit. Surgery (Carotid Endarterectomy, or CEA) can be done to open the artery and scrape the plaque out and restore flow through the vessel, but bleeding is a risk.
