I know I'm lucky to be alive so hair loss seems to be a small price to pay. My partner thinks I'd look good in a ginger wig ! But following the stroke I lost a stone in weight overnight which has left me with the skin of an 80 year old , there is zero elasticity, just ' Turkey neck ' all over. Any ideas anyone ? I do thai chi, yoga, aerobics and weights. In fact I lead the same life as BS, before stroke, almost. Except I'm more aware of my diet, low caffeine, salt, fat, little alcohol. My doctor wants to keep me on the meds, no ablation . My inr is around 2.5 and I feel good. I've read as much as possible but it's still a bit of a minefield. I'd love an answer like most of us, why ? What did I do to start this journey ? When did my heart change it's beating pattern? How did that happen ? Could I have prevented it ? In fact my kids are searching for answers, just in case ..........
