Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection

Hi I have had an
Other event in my life. 2 weeks ago in the early hours of the 1st August 2013 I had a seizure and was rushed to hospital. During the seizure I dislocated my shoulder. It took a week for the hospital to put it back in place as they had to take me off my blood thinning medicine just in case the had to open me up while they were resetting my shoulder. Luky they didn't need to open me up and reset the shoulder under anaesthesia.
I now have a sling on for 6 weeks with a type of cushion between it and my ribs to stop my shoulder popping out again. Isn't life wondereful just when you are getting over two things something else pops up to couches you on the important things.

Patrick, thanks for your welcome.  It sounds as if you've had a rough road...I sure hope things calm down and you have no more "events."  Wishing you well!

Richard I have seen the neurologist and he said I could have been due to my stroke in 2009. He does not think it is epilepsy but has put me on preventative medication.

Thanks for the kind thoughts.
I have been to see the neurologist and he said that the seizure was a result of my previous stroke. It is not epilepsy.
The shoulder has been reset and I will see the consultant on 20th September to see if it is stable and repaired and does not need surgery.

I am going to see a neurological consultant to see if they can find out what brought it on. It may be something to do with scarring on the brain from my stroke in 2009.
