I had an aneurysm diagnosed just as I started breast cancer treatment. Not related to treatment, just happen to find during CT scan. It was calcified, so treatment was just low dosage aspirin and monitoring. No one mentioned effect on platelets which stayed in normal range during chemo. They were checked before every chemo session.

If you were seen for stroke at Mayo, checked the portal notes. The ER or other drs might of documented the conversation with oncologist in visit notes. Also, may show if they talked to your oncologist or a oncologist on call over holiday weekend.

Good luck
Laurie

After my last Chemo treatment I had a very bad headache I went to my Oncologist and they all were checking my blood pressure and then made a decision to move to urgent care so they could lower my blood pressure which they did not do anything about my blood pressure he had two brain scans done gave me Benadryl and said I had to go to my primary doctor for the blood pressure! What a big run around I finally seen my primary doctor two days later and she told me I had a stroke!!!! So yes chemo can cause strokes!🥲
