Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that your father suffered TIAs after getting discharged. It is possible for the brain to get new clots within a short span of time.

After initial TIA, it is important to use blood thinners such as aspirin to prevent recurrence of TIA or strokes in future. In addition, risk factors such as diabetes, high BP and cholesterol should be controlled.

Best wishes,
