I am 51 and have recently suffered a minor stroke. All sensations returned after approx. 48hours. I also suffer from Parkinsons Disease and following approval from my neurologist have continued to enjoy diving.
I am at present taking daily doses of aspirin, persantin and simvastatin as well as ropinirole for Parkinsons.
What are my chances of continuing to dive?

WE will need to see you to assess your Parkinsons as well as getting a neuro map to see where there are any deficiencies.
So if you were in a bad way theres always Scuba Trust
