@stparker54, What a scary experience.

I am not sure type of cancer or when you had chemo, but I remember having stroke risk discussion with my oncologist about taking AIs.

Here is article on breast cancer treatments that have been associated with increased stroke risk:

I would definitely contact your oncologist on Monday about what happen and ask him/her about cancer treatment and increase stroke risk.

What advice, treatment, or preventive measures did the drs. in hospital recommend?

Laurie: doctors at the hospital already contacted my oncologist. I hope this doesn't affect chemo treatment going forward. Now that I have to take low dose aspirin, this could affect my platelet count, which has been low during chemo. I have clear cell endometrial cancer stparker54
