In uteto stroke,abnormal EEG,no seizures. Drs say abnormality on EEG can be from stroke site. Can anyone elaborate? Is it likely to not hv seizure?

In brief: EEG Findings

I would need more information to provide a better answer, but most likely the EEG showed some focal slowing without any seizure like discharges that would indicate a structural lesion.
In this case, most likely a stroke. The likelihood of having a seizure has many other factors that need to be considered.

In brief: Scar tissue

One way to think about the result of a stroke, whether in utero or old age, is that blood supply is cut off from a part of the brain.
Without blood, brain tissue can "die" and leave behind a scar. An EEG reads the electrical signals from the brain and the abnormality is from the scar tissue. The brain's electricity can't flow through the scar and so the result. Scar is risk, not guarantee of sz
