Thanks for posting.
It is important that you keep the risk factors for stroke under control which are obesity, high BP, diabetes, high cholesterol, smoking, alcoholism and mental stress.
Physiotherapy will help with the gait problem that you have. Doctors usually prescribe low dose aspirin and thrombolytic therapy for prevention of full fledged stroke.

Hope this helps!
