Introductions: Ongoing Issues - Cognitive Impairment, Post Perfusion Syndrome
In 2010 I had a stroke and luckily for me I was thrombolised which let me get up and walk out of the hospital 48 hrs latter, unluckily I then had to have heart by-pass surgery in 2011 following an angina attack. Since then the last 7 years have been difficult, with me suffering memory loss, loss of concentration, cofindence issues, extreme fatigue coupled with ongoing angina symptoms. I have seen research that suggests that some people who have heart surgery or a stroke suffer from post cognitive impairment or post perfusion syndrome which was thought only to be temporary but now could be long term or permanent for some. Anyone have similar issues?
