  • I don't know about a stroke or injury, you should talk with your doctors. A friend of mine did have a reoccurring tumor(benign) and had to have several brain surgeries when we were teens, she now has 2 children and didn't have any problems with pregnancy.

    I would discuss it with both a neurosurgeon and an OB,

    good luck

  • I say a doctor is the best one to ask about this...He knows your condition and can explain risks to you.

  • I had a stroke in 1994 (I was 1 month away from turning 23) In 1997 I had my first son and in 2000 my second. They didn't even mention the stroke when I was pregnant. In fact, they were more worried because I have a heart condition and my cardiologist everything was fine and I wasn't even a high risk pregnancy.

  • .In 2007 I had a blood blot leaked into my brain while I was 5 months pregnant with my 2nd child, I carried him to full term 7 days after I had him the blood clot burst causing me to have a hemoragic stroke. I want more children but I'm scared, my neurologist says one thing, the doctor who did my surgery says another & my main doctor at the va says something else. I just want the same answer from all but that never happens.
