I had a stroke and am wondering if it had anyhting to do with the VIOXX
and percocet I was taking for the pain I had in my left shoulder (surgery in OCT)
I am left with aphasia and difficulty writing, short term memory problems,
and other such problems. There is no paralysis, which is good , and to look at me you would not know
unless i open my mouth, and it happens that you knew me :"when" :)
I am a professional carver and do not know whether that will come back.
I am told it will all come back but have to wonder what
caused this? They originally said it was a "bleeder" stroke,
but now they have changed to a "clot" theory.
Why is this? and is it significant?
I am very cofused by all this and fearful it will come back.
