    Dr Brown,

    I suffered an intracranial hemorrhage a year ago, caused by a cavernous angioma in the brainstem. Doctors say the region is inoperable, and radiosurgery is not recommended at this time.
    What cautions & lifestyle changes can I take to minimize the probability of another bleed in the future? Can I return to triathlon training?

      An treatment option that may be available to you is Gamma Knife surgery. Like stated on the show there are various neurosurgeons that currently offer the treatment.

    If you are getting occasional burred/wavy vision sometimes with or without pain in face radiating from nose upwards. Is this cause to be a concern that you are having TIAs ?

    A doctor says I may have had a stroke, but that I was fine. (Then he left the room before I could ask questions, and struggling to get an appointment with another neuro.) I was in my late 30s when this stroke would have occurred.

    I want to follow up with another doctor, but how would they discover whether I had a stroke a while ago? Are you more likely to have future strokes if you have had one?
