Re: My 1st Post/Carotid Artery Bruit
Mulchie, I should have explained myself better in my first post. The doctor was just doing my 6 month checkup when he sounded my neck. This is the first time he's heard a bruit. Thank God thus far I haven't had a stroke. I posted here because I thought this would be the board that would have the most information regarding carotid artery stents.
I'm so sorry your medicine caused a stroke. I agree whole heartedly with you, medicine can and do cause strokes and other serious conditions. It looks like it's six one way and half a dozen the other.
You're right, surviving a heart attack is a life saving deal. Many don't survive. A friend of our, like your friend, had one and feels better now than he has in years.
I'm praying I don't have to have stents at this time in my life. Of course if the Lord says I do, then it shall be.
Thank you so much for replying. I will let you know what the test reveals. And, you did make me feel better! Thank you!
