Post-stroke: You need to ask your doctor because you need to be seen and the doc has to know your history. Another factor is the type of work you do. Some jobs would be ok and others not so. Continued health and peace as you recover.

Important to understand cause of a stoke at a young age, and whether future medications are indicated. Ability to work will depend upon success of rehab program, and lingering disability. You ask about surgery, which raises a real question of what has occurred. A thorough status conference with your neurologist is indeed in order.
