I am really worried. My husband suffered a TIA on Saturday afternoon but did not go to the hospital till Sunday evening after my insistence because of the loss of use in his left hand. He had tests and scans which apparently showed there had been no bleed on the brain but they were not sure what had happened. He went back this morning and it turns out that an artery in the right side of his neck had a thrombosis, part of which had moved into the brain and damaged a very small area. The doctor told him that this artery was narrowing and would eventually close altogether but the blood to his brain was finding other channels. He said they could not operate on this type of condition as it was more risky than leaving it. He has upped his Atorvastatin to 40mg and prescribed Clopidrogrel as well. I am scared stiff that he is going to suffer another stroke possible a full blown one next time. Can any one give me any reassurance. (I am just three weeks post hip replacement op so am feeling very helpless and emotional )
