Hi Duke,
Your diagnosis suggest that you have white matter necrosis due to ischemia (you have suffered two mild strokes).
The white matter of the brain is located in the central and sub cortical regions of the cerebral and cerebellar hemispheres and accounts for about 60 % of the total brain volume. The deep white matter of the cerebral hemispheres receives its blood supply from long, small-caliber arteries and arterioles that penetrate the cerebral cortex and traverse the superficial white matter fiber tracts.
The white matter does not have as generous a blood supply as the gray matter and is more susceptible to ischemia.
As mentioned previously, the observed changes are secondary to chronic ischemia of the deep white matter and are found more often in patients with ischemic cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, and aging (as it is relevant to your case).
It suggest that more of your routine functions, you are to be supported.
Hope this helps.
Bye.
