Physiotherapy At Fatima Hospital

After my surgery of ' subacromial decompression ', I am undergoing 3 months of physiotherapy.  And I came to know a lot of new friends at the ' torture chamber' :) Why I called it torture chamber ? Coz the physio is quite painful for me .There is this old lady of 60 who recently suffered a mild stroke and had difficulty in walking. After a year of therapy, she could walk with the help of a walking cane. After our physio, we usually go for a cup of tea at the hospital cafeteria which is just next door.  She told me that her doctor prescribed that she takes clopidogrel generic plavix daily.  I asked her what this pill is and she explained that it reduces the chance of having a heart attack or a stroke in peole who have already had a heart attack or a stroke. The pill can also decrease the chance of a heart attach or stroke in certain groups of people a high risk for these events. This pill has to be prescribed by doctors. After chatting with her, I become aware that we have to take care of our health.  Exercise is still the best prevention besides being careful of the food we partake in :)
