Reducing risks after a stroke
A stroke counts as one of the most frightening and distressing experiences in life. Now is the time to do everything in your power to ensure that such an event does not repeat itself. You should try to minimize all risk factors and, above all, independently monitor your own health. One major risk for another stroke would be the unexpected appearance of (previously untreated) atrial fibrillation or, for those already suffering from atrial fibrillation, after the effects of heartbeat stabilization therapy begin to wear off.
