Was your appointment at Trafford General Hospital?


What I liked: "Mr. Fitzgerald was very caring. He quickly diagnosed my problem. He made a quick appointment for me to have an ultrasound. He explained the problem in detail and gave me written information about surgery. Having agreed to surgery my surgery took place very quickly with excellent results. Good guy!!!"

I went for: Hand surgery (trigger finger)

"Dr. Ruzicka was extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He made sure to explain everything to me, and did everything he can to reassure me everything would be fine. He spent a lot of time with me, and never made me feel rushed. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ruzicka anyone."

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.
