Autopsy Advocacy: Spine Surgery – Part II
Follow-up to original post: http://bit.ly/2ayNUsK

Your loved one woke up with speech difficulty and right sided weakness after neck surgery. You realize this means there was a stroke.

If you hadn’t, you
a. Might never be able to advocate for treatment options for stroke.
b. Might never be able to work with your loved one to lower risk factors for future strokes.
c. Might believe the physician if he/she were to explain this was simply a "natural outcome" of the surgery.
d. All of the above.

Stay tuned for Part III See MoreSee Less
