Carotid Artery Dissection

Post by nmacog » May 9th, 2022, 4:14 am

Hi All,

I suffered a left internal carotid artery dissection mid March, which tore one of the layers of the artery. I haven't rowed since and have been advised not to carry out any resistence training for at least 6 months. Currently being treated with medication (blood thinners, statins and blood pressure tablets). MRI due September.

Was wondering if anyone else here has suffered from this in the past, and if they stopped rowing completely or managed to get back on the rower ?

Thanks in advance.

Sandy.
