Thank you for posting your query.

Your questions have not come here, so, I request you to re-post your questions.

Regarding hypothyroidism, it is a well known cause for low sodium. So, thyronorm should be continued, and it may be required for lifelong.

His current symptoms are not related to the old brain stroke.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
