So you survive a stroke and are discharged from the hospital, probably
counting your blessings that you’re still alive. But if you’re a
Medicare beneficiary, it’s not likely to be smooth sailing: a new
study finds the odds of either ending up dead or back in the hospital
within a year are 62%.
Whats the percentage of those who don't quit smoking or don't quit drinking?
My friend who recently had a stroke (I've posted about this here) is 68 and a Medicare beneficiary. She does not smoke or drink. She is also not overweight.
