    ok thanks, it's just that my primary is not a doctor (but a nurse practitioner) and didn't even seem that familiar with my case or about blood thinners. But, I'll just ask my cardiologist who seems far more familiar with my situation.

    Hey, I had a hemorrhagic stroke last year. And a few months ago, I switched health plans and got a new primary who happens to be a nurse practitioner. She added to my prescription a daily dose of aspirin. Just a few days ago, I read that aspirin could be bad especially if one suffered from a hemorrhagic stroke. I asked my primary about this and she said to keep taking the aspirin and ask when I next see my cardiologist. Is this a good idea? My primary said that it's only a low dose aspirin, but I really don't see a need especially since my stroke was due to extreme hypertension and I don't have a risk of clotting due to excessive cholesterol. Should I continue taking a low dose aspirin or should I stop taking aspirin completely? My next appointment with my cardiologist is in early March.
