Cancer and Stroke
On Thanksgiving I had a TIA, or mini-stroke. My speech was slurring; I was drooling and had weakness in my hand. I also had weakness in my hand on Friday so I went to emergency, and they put me in hospital for a day to run all kinds of tests — CT-Scan and MRI of brain, EKG and echocardiogram, blood tests etc. The doctor’s verdict was that I had an acute stroke; it showed up in MRI. My question is there a connection between chemo and stroke. Has anyone experienced this?
