In brief: Comments

Most surgeons would wait a minimum of 6-8 weeks.
During this time, however, you need to take a protective medication such as Aggrenox or clopidigrel.

In brief: Depends

As far as timing, several factors have to be weighed following a stroke to determine the optimum cooling off period before an invasive procedure such as a cea is done.
Things such as type &, size of stroke, accompanying complications, &general health status of the patient. I'd say most neurologists and neurosurgeons feel comfortable with an average wait time of 6 to 8 weeks.

In brief: Depends

In conventional cases it is done 6 - 8 weeks after the stroke.
In certain cases it can be done soon after the stroke. Consult your neurologist and vascular surgeon.
