PostSubject: The dreadful unexpected happened !   Wed Nov 09, 2011 1:16 pm

Hi bros n sistas
What every one feared of the unexpected happened to me late yesterday afternoon just after 4pm。I had a STROKE ! Yes a stroke attack. Luckily it was a mild one and my quick decision to go to hospital immediately. Here is how it happened. I was as usual infront of my pc and suddenly my left arm which was resting on the arm rest just suddenly slipped from it. I just suddenly felt as if I was high on drug. Like when you took some medicine which made you kind of sleepy. A bit like when you are a bit tipsy when you drank a bit too much alcohol. When I stand up my left leg need some effort too move it forward. my mind was already forming an opinion which was a stroke attack. I shuffled to my bedroom for my portable blood pressure monitor. The first reading threw me off. 200/110 !!!!! I repeat the taking one more time as I prayed that something was wrong with the monitor. The same result confirmed my worst fear that I had just had a stroke. At this moment my wife was in Taipei for a business trip. At home just my 11 year old son n the maid. I quickly called my maid n told her I need to go to hospital immediately. By now my left side is getting worst. I need my son to support me to get downstair and ask the maid to go hail a cab. Nearest hospital was Gleneahles and that's where I went. They got hold of a specialist and immediately scheduled a MRI scan which revealed a small clog!blockade in the brain. He did a physical test on my left hand n leg like some resistance kind of thing. He said quite good . He said luckily I reacted fast and got here fast. Any dilly dally getting to hospital might really endanger the whole issue. Medicines were prescribed and today I felt like I regain my arm n leg usage of aboutv70/80 %. thank goodness. The doctor came just awhile ago and did somemore physical test on my arm n leg. Announced very very good. You know what I asked him? How long before I could get back to play gold? 3. Months , 6 months down the road ?'he sme at me and said " maybe 1 month for you". Wow best news I have heard so far haha.
Well guys thanks for hearing this true life story. This teaches us not to take life for granted. Though I was a hypertension case for the past 20 years taking medications for this ailment diligently daily I underestimate the situation by thinking that nothing will happen as I took my medications so diligently. Boy was ibuprofen wrong. With this experience my outlook now towards the future will take a dramatic change. I am not going to take things for granted. Everything I do now will have a purpose.
So guys please take care of yourself especially your health. Life is short. Nobody can tell what will happen next. Take care n enjoy your glf. Cheers!

Titu

Hi Spidey...take good care of yourself and don''t exert yourself in wanting to golf so soon. Accupuncture might help too..

Tituman,

As someone which such good humour, your question to your doctor, "How long before I can play golf?" was very much in character, and made me smile as well.

Glad to hear you are recovering well, thanks to your quick thinking and fast reaction.

Hope you get back to the course soon.

Peace and good health.

Recover fast! My dad got a stroke last year as well. Besides his regular medication now, I also drive him to JB for TCM.

PM me if you want the contact and God bless!
