Hi yucy..
yes you should continue ecosprin as it helps in thinning of your blood to prevent similar catastophe events which u sufferred...since you ve not told all the medicines which you are i advice you to get a CT scan brain which might point out to some subdural bleeds..get a brain angiography , EEG study too plus complete cardio pulmonary work out(ECHO chest Xray ECG) to rule out...the CT scan will also tell any residual clots in the affected area of your brain..
Hope u get well soon
