In may 2015 I suffered a CVST about 2 weeks after giving birth prematurely. Unfortunately my little girl died at 3 weeks old and I still have to deal with the fact I had a stroke. I had extreme preeclampsia and clampsia after having my daughter and then 2 weeks after she was born I was at home and collapsed on one side in the shower. It was later found that I had a clot on my brain and I was given. 48 hours to improve or I was going to die. Pretty intense at 34 years of age. I came out of the stroke symptoms within 48 hours and made a full recovery .... however I have since been diagnosed with prothrombin 2 mutation and I'm in constant fear of it happening again. I have had headaches for the past 3 weeks and I'm terrified it's happening again. Apparently after a first cvst u are more likely to have another. My anxiety is through the roof. I had to deal with a. Traumatic loss of my daughter, then a stroke and then this year I lost my father. Is it all worth it. I hope so . I no longer can safely have a child and my daughter was my only child. I feel so lost and hurt and like I'm being punished. Guess I just need to talk to people who have had these worries in their lives and how you keep positive.
