What is cerebral stroke? My father died recently due to cerebral stroke. He was hospitalised for high bp. He was ok for first two days. After that he went unconscious. There was no recovery since then, he died on the fourth day. Reason given by doctors was cerebral stroke. I have seen the info in wikipedia. I want to know from experiences of the people. I knew only heart problems and heart attacks. I never knew that blood clot in the brain would kill the person.
