10 questions to ask your GP about stroke

After experiencing a stroke, it can be hard to remember all the questions you want to ask during a doctor's appointment. Here are some suggestions.

  1. How soon can I expect to recover after my stroke?
  2. How can I find specialists that can help me regain my skills and functions?
  3. Is there a recommended diet that I should follow?
  4. Is there an exercise programme that I should follow? Will physiotherapy be helpful?
  5. Who can help me find equipment to make my life easier?
  6. Would antidepressants help me during my recovery?
  7. Am I at risk of having another stroke?
  8. What can I do to minimise my risk? Should I be taking aspirin? Am I a good candidate for other medications to help prevent another stroke?
  9. Are there any local stroke support groups that my family and I can contact?
  10. Are there any clinical trials for which I may be a good candidate?
