1ST MAY this year had a slight stroke---couldn`t speak properly for approx 18 hrs--nor couldn`t remember what happened. After 24hrs approx, appear to have got back to normal, except my memory isn`t as good. Apparently I had a stroke due to blocked artery. Had brain scan, ecographia, and ecocardiografia. I have arteriosclerosis, adhesions on my thyroid glands and have ongoing hospital apts( with little or no info} however I have noticed that my abdomen seems to be more swollen. Iam 76 years old, female, have diabetes, high blood pressure, and chloresterol---all of which are generally controlled. Am also 84kilos in weight, 5ft 2ins in height. Do you know why my abdo. is more swollen now? Regards Sheila [in Spain)
