The human body is remarkably resilient & adaptive, far more than many, possibly most, would give it credit for. A friend of mine was born with transposition of her main arteries & a hole in her heart (not the normal one).

Its people like you two that make the rest of us realise how lucky we are to be esentially healthy

    A few questions, if you don't mind the inquisition...can you/do you still attribute the stroke to stress?? Do you know the cause of the infection?? And are you awaiting a heart transplant per chance??
    Sorry for such a late reply.
    The stroke was due to work stress, of that I'm 100% sure. The infection, well when I tried to get answers from the doctors they were very evasive, but I strongly suspect it was introduced during the operation or the wires were infected. Transplant? The condition will progress and the main focus of the treatment is to slow down the degradation as much as possible, so maybe something else will call time.
