    Unfortunately there is a risk for stroke with any heart surgery, esp. one where the heart is temporarily stopped like most by passes. This can allow clots to develop inside the heart, and once the heart is started again, these can travel up the carotids to your brain causing an embolic stroke.

    Were you referred to a good stroke rehabilitation center/program? Did you get self-care and mobility training in this program? Are you continuing to get therapy?
