Is this an indication that he may suffer additional strokes while in ICU or later?

Posted by C

My step dad had surgery today to remove blockage of the right carotid artery.  Surgery went great.  Unfortunately, during recovery, a clot formed and he's had a mild stroke.  Arm is only partially impacted, can feel and raise about half way.  He's alert, articulate and has full functions otherwise.   Said his vitals are very good and that blood flow to brain is excellent post surgery. The surgeon is suggesting that he should have full recovery and does  not seem overly concerned.  See question above, site wouldn't allow me to input this info above.
