Was it a TIA?
My father is in the process of determining if he had a TIA or not.  The doctor found a piece of scare tissue in his brain after a cat scan.  How likely is this to have been the cause of a TIA and if so, can they determind how long ago this happened?  I have read that he is at risk of another stroke within 90 days of this.  Any insight?

A TIA is a mini stroke.  In the hospital the Doctor and nurses will keep close eye on vitals and and blood count and be very watchful to make sure that a stroke doesn't happen, the next 48 hours are cruseful.
God Bless you and Yours!
