Pfo

I have a pfo and just went to my cardiologist . Six months  ago I had a small stroke Tia, 5 years ago I had a massive stroke and was given TPA, I recovered 95%. I am so mad, I have been sitting and waiting 6 months, to see him and he just said to stay on Coumadin. I was put on Coumadin in the emergency room before I was told I had a pfo, so last apt with him I was to be tested, for clotting, get a tee and measured.  None of this happened he just sent me home, and told me to stay on Coumadin. I need a new good doctor, can anyone help?

I think the PFO diagnosis is pretty common, but certainly a TIA has to grab attention of the doctors, and obviously it did for you to be prescribed Coumadin.  You absolutely should be tested about every 3 - 6 months from every protocol I've ever heard of.  I'm not a health professional, but sure question why you aren't being tested.  I'd ask to talk to your Cardiologist's nurse and discuss the situation.
