I had a TIA 9 years ago and a mild ischemic stroke 2 1/2 years ago. (Actually, I had two of them 17 days apart. The first was mild, the 2nd was milder). I recovered completely in a short period of time, lowered my cholesterol from 300 to 200, and take Plavix and Pravastatin daily. I live in constant fear of having another stroke...the next one being bigger...debilitating or deadly. I've always been a worrier, but am a hundred times worse, now that I have something to worry about. Is there anyone out there who had a stroke a long time ago and never had another? Can people be stroke-free once they've had one? (Or two?) I feel doomed and worry about it daily. I'm 66, but don't feel old ....just terrified.
