I am new to this site. My main reason for coming to this forum was to try to get in touch with others who had this PFO closure. I had a stroke in February 2006 and the closure in March 2006. I got a check up less than 6months later and haven't seen the doctor who did the procedure since. I think it was because I didn't have good insurance, but I had no complications.
I am fine just seeing my internal medicine doctor. I was on bloodthinner(Aggrenox) after my stroke and am only on Atenolol 25mg and take baby aspirin now. I am mainly worried about
going through pregnancy in the coming years. I am 29 and unmarried but with the right guy for 5 yrs now, so children are definitely in the picture for our future. I am guessing before I get pregnant I'll get a TEE, regular Echo and Doppler to check for loose ends or flaps;) in my heart. Anyone out there with experience-I'd appreciate information.
