What I liked: "Mr Carlson is very easy to speak to. He puts you at ease, and he explains everything clearly. I felt a lot better just by speaking to him. Well worth seeing him private, as I was out of my mind with worry."

Atrial fibrillation is a major risk factor of stroke. The top heart chambers (atria) fibrillate and stagnation of blood predisposes to clotting; the blood clot can then get dislodged into circulation and finally wedged in one of the arteries in brain cutting off blood supply and causing a stroke.

Rivaroxaban is one of anticoagulants ('blood thinning' drugs) which reduce the risk of excessive clotting and so the risk of stroke. So, the answer is yes - a previous stroke automatically places your mother in the high risk category - but she seems to be on a good treatment to reduce this risk as much as possible.

Endometriosis is progressive as long as you have periods.
Pregnancy, hormonal pills/injections which stop the periods or menopause prevent further progression

Blepharoplasty can be performed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. Upper blepharoplasty and minimally invasive lower blepharoplasty can be performed under local. More aggressive lower blepharoplasty often is best under general anaesthetic. It is worth a consultation to go through the pros and cons of each method and allow you to make an informed decision as to which is the best method for you.
