In september 2 I had 2 disks replaced in my neck. I have no memory of this but Im told I was sent home 2 days later on sept 4 2010. I am told that I was tossing and turning all night as I slept. I am told the next morning I tried to sit up and couldnt they say I could not feel a thing from ears down to my toe. After hours of tests they determined I had multiple strokes 7 to 9 and they had come from a hole in my heart. I am now told that nothing can be done for my heart but meds. The hole is more of a large flap that opens when I cough sneeze or laugh. Can any one talk to me about this? My whole life has changed forever I am a 48 year old woman with a history of systemic RH for 34 years. Its amazing to me that I have had so many joint surgeries joint replacements all said and done I have had around 75 surgeries and never had a clue about my heart evan with all the surgeries I was a fighter I walked every day at least 2 miles always watched my diet how could this go undetected for so long?
