Brief Answer:
Yes you can

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Cerebral infarct is an acute event and the medications that you are taking currently are basically for preventing any further attacks. Its good that you have altered your diet according to the requirement.
Regarding playing rigorous sports, its very much advisable for you to be physically active. Start with mild walking and then gradually increase to the more vigorous sports. The usual precautions of going slow on exercise advised for cardiac problems are not required for cerebral ischemia.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
