Topic: Any connection with stroke?
Just wondering if anyone has had experience of stroke or other clotting /thrombic conditions in the months before diagnosis?.
My Mother ,who has been recently diagnosed CC after a bout of Jaundice 6 weeks ago, had a stroke caused by a blood clot end of November 08.
She made a very brave recovery from this and has only a small left side deficit in her leg and arm.
Knowing that CC is a slow and insidious cancer, I feel that she most probably was growing the cancer at that time,although there were no specific symptoms other than she seemed to be aging a little more quickly than my Dad,who is the same age.
At 81 she has been offered no treatment other than palliative care,which leads me to assume the CC is pretty far advanced.The time frame would be about right assuming an approximate 3 year course for the disease with no treatment.
Any helpful opinions?
