My husband had a bleeding stroke 2 yrs ago at age 57. It was so severe, the doctors said he should not be alive. His only contributing factor was very high cholestrol. One year later he had a seizure and is now on Depakote as well as other meds. Since they do not know the cause of the first stroke and since he is unable to exercise at all due to severe balance problems but can slowly walk with a cane, what is the percentage of risk that he could have another stroke? He has developed Parkinson's type symptoms but I am assuming that is from the Depakote. Is there an association with stroke and progressive palsy symptoms after a bleeding stroke? I know there is no crystal ball but if any known medical stats would be sincerely appreciated.
