The stroke bit me when I had just turned 68. I don't smoke, not overweight, drink in moderation and above all don't smoke. I am quite active, especially with a long garden to maintain. Mine was ischemic right lacunar infarct. And no complications, a "simple" and uncomplicated stroke.
I had really been enjoying retirement to a delightful village and an inherited bungalow refurbished to suit my wife and I.
If there is anything you want to discuss, do ask. I have no medical training but I do have the experience !
