Symptoms after a TCAR procedure to clear a blocked carotid artery

Posted by hahnco @hahnco, May 25 8:45am

After the TCAR, I began to experience memory loss while speaking. I can not remember even common words which causes me to delay my thoughts and stop speaking. Have discussed with my cardiologist and vascular surgeon. They suspect a stroke or maybe a bleed in my brain ? I’m scheduled for an MRI to give us answers.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases Support Group.

This is my choice also. I am having a tough time making the decision to have the procedure or continue on medication and monitor yearly. Please help in things to consider.
