my friend is only 35, pregnant with number 4 and has had a stroke. She is also suffering pubic/pelvic problems (can't remember the name of it). She's got about 6 weeks to go and i'm very worried about her, does this mean she's likely to have another stroke? i haven't been able to see her yet but her partner says that the feeling she lost has come back and she's o.k but i am worried.
funnybone just wanted to say how sad - was it down to high blood pressure do you know? I would imagine that the hospital are monitoring it seriously if that's the case and she will be in the best hands.
Thinking of you and your friend/her family
funnybone it isn't much consolation but once somebody has had a stoke the risk is far higher of having another.
On a positive note, now that they are aware of the increased risk she can be checked/monitored and may never have another one.
It is great that she has recovered so quickly from this one.
