What to ask your doctor about your stroke


In addition to heading up the Stroke/Neuroscience Unit at Long Beach Medical Center, Angie West is a support group facilitator and board member for Stroke Support Association. 

In our support groups, we sometimes hear from a stroke survivor that they don’t know much about the stroke they had.

In the midst of crisis, while in the hospital, you may not have cared whether your stroke was an ischemic, a hemorrhagic, or a TIA. You may have been too exhausted, worried, or confused to ask anything other than: “Why did this happen?” and  “What happens now?”

Even if your doctor explained your stroke, you may want a better understanding.  It is never too late to ask your doctor about even the most basic of questions. But it helps to know what to ask.
