I have a friend that suffered a stroke after taking VIOXX for only four days.

I would like to hear more about your experience, please e-mail me at djos7@aol.com.

Thanks.

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.

: HI,
: My husband (47 years old) had knee and minor hip surgery, the DR had him on Vioxx and percocet too. He was a type II diabetic also. He passed away sudddenly on May 3rd from a massive pulmonary embolism. The FDA is now taking a second look at Vioxx due to recent deaths. I do not have all the inof as I am still seraching it out myself. I know I would never take this drug or want anyone else I cared about to take it. I pray you do not suffer from any further problems and will be able to make a recovery soon.
