Hello, hope somebody can help me with this.
My dad is 62, he had bowel cancer 5 years ago. He had an operation to remove the tumour and everything ended up ok. Ever since his therapy his left arm went numb every now and again, it lasted about 2 minutes. This gradually progressed into the whole left side of his body. Sometimes he can go weeks without one, but then he will just stop dead and have to sit down. His whole left side goes numb and he just sits there holding and rubbing his arm until it passes.
He has been to the doctors and they scanned his brain, the noticed a mark which they said was a stoke from the past. They put him on 1 aspirin daily.
I am worried that these 'attacks' are going to get worse and one day he will have a large one which will be fatal.
Does anybody have experience of this? Any help in fighting/curing this would be really appreciated.
Thanks for your help.
