Has anyone heard of someone having a Mini stroke , didn't do any damage . Are they still riding ?
Depends on the amount of blockage. It's not always a clear cut proceedure. My Dad got Miastia Gravis from it and a friend of mine 54 died 2 weeks after it was done., I don't know if it was directly related to the surgery or not. He just had a massive strokeMike L said:So what's the procedure if you have a blockage in the main neck artery ?
Roto router ? Or would it depend on the amount of blockage etc. ?
I know you don't get MG from a stroke he got after surgery to his corotidsFastFreddie said:TOP you DON"T get MG from a stroke!
MikeL, They do extensive tests on you. SOmetimes if the blockage isn't too bad they will prescribe plavix, or cumitin, or heprin (Some sort of blood thinners)
A mini or TIA is a warning that your probably gonna have a full blowner within a year. Some people, including myself, have no warnings and go right into a full blown stroke but does not last long enough to do any real damage. The right side of my body experienced numbness upon awakening. At first i thought my leg was asleep and thought i would just walk it off. After about three laps up and down the hall, i noticed i had a tingling also in my upper extreams. Thats when i decided this wasn't a good deal. Went to the hospital and was released about 12 hours later with the stroke diagnosis. Almost six years later and i still have numbness inthe front half of right foot and tingling all the way through my face. I was very lucky to have come out with only these residual effects. Now i take a handfull of medicine, watch my diet, try to excercise and getting ready to celebrate six anniversary of quitting smoking after thirty-six years of doing so. If you feel funny, check it out. If you don't feel funny, get regular checkups anyway. :wink:hutch said:Has anyone heard of someone having a Mini stroke , didn't do any damage .
