New situation to deal withm

Recommended Posts

My neurologist follow up yesterday yielded some news, they noted when I was in the hospital for the stroke treatment,  a couple of partially blocked arteries in my right brain. I will need to see an interventional neuro surgeon. From what I read this can be corrected if necessary with a stent. 

Typically inserted through the upper leg. Sounds better to me than surgery. Anyone know about this?

I have a stent in my basilar artery. It happened while I was in surgery ( 6 1/2 hours right after I was flown to Hospital) but your upper inner thigh ( near groin) is sore but nothing more and possibly ,like me, be on Plavix .... for life but it's a good thing.
