Hi - ive been on this group for s few months now and have found it informative and supportive. Today I saw a different stroke consultant- a breath of fresh air after the last one. He says there is no evidence of me having Afib - the 24hr ecg did not show it although the last consultant said it did. The difference here was that he showed me all he scans and talked me through them. He said that the anticoagulants I have been taking for the last 3 months won't have been protecting me from further strokes and to go back on clopidogrel and aspirin asap. Those of you who've seen my other posts will know i have struggled with allergies and intolerance to to warfarin and NOACs so i am relieved to be off them but worried as to how safe I will be on aspirin anc clopidogrel. He sent me for an angiogram so he could see what is happening with my arteries in head and neck and I'm waiting for a phone call this afternoon with the results. Not sure whether to be worried,relieved or what.
