Worse since stroke

Hi Maggers I am about 2 1/2 years out from my stroke. I feel as though I have gone backwards in the last year since I stopped taking statins. I still feel like I’m going backwards. Sometimes I feel as though it’s two steps forward and one or two steps back. I read a book about Statins and never looked back. BTW, my one daughter and her husband are both doctors nearly 3,000 miles away. My four sisters are close by me. As is my second daughter.

I was going through a divorce when I was diagnosed and couldn’t wait to leave the hospital. I had just moved into a new house 2 weeks earlier. Bad timing.

My GP retired about a year ago so I’m with a new PCP. My volume of O2 went below average about 1 week after I started taking rosuvastatin but since then, I have stopped it, and it has gone back above average. Hard to believe I stood on a winners platform for a triathlon. I participated in 2015, now this.
