Possible Cause of Stroke and Near Death - London, England

- 24 Aug 2012
30 hrs post-injection, had difficultly swallowing & was talking w/ a lisp.Wasn't better the next day, so went to hospital the next day for suspected allergic reaction. A week later, went into cardiac arrest. Was on life support for 1 wk & stayed 5 wks. It was a brain stem stroke & lucky to be alive.
I've had Juvederm/Restylane before w/o issue, so I wasn't worried when I bought a KGB deal for this. A nurse did the treatment who had solid experience. I know I had a super rare reaction but I'll never do it again. It scared the hell out of me. I'm having to delay completion of my MSc b/c my brain isn't cooperating as before. I don't know if I'll ever feel the same as before again, even though I know my stroke damage was minimal compared to others. I'm really lucky to even be walking and talking.
