I think her 60 pack-year history suggests possible PAD and therefore loss of proprioception in the lower extremities, leading to an unfortunate distractor
I don't understand why you would consider the propioceptive deficit a distractor... doesn't the DCML (which carries propioceptive information) project to the primary somatosensory cortex (via the VPL?). In this case, a lesion to the right anterior cerebral artery, which supplies both motor and sensory information to the lower limb would lead to somatosensory, propioceptive, and motor deficits.
These questions can be so frustrating... I mean most people know PPIs are your go to when considering GERD / peptic ulcer disease... but when you speicfically add "both relieving Sx ... promoting healing", why even add a drug that specifically and directly does both... I mean PPIs promote healing, but so indirectly. This hurts my heart
