Hi

Sorry to hear about your stroke :(

I think the general rule is those of use who have had strokes are more likely to have another one than the general population.  The goal (of you & your doctor) should be to manage what ever risk factors to prevent another stroke.  This means some sort of follow up with your doctor.

All the best
