suffer from cerebral thrombosis

A friend's uncle suddenly suffered from cerebral thrombosis and fell down the other day. I wonder if I can use 'suffer from' in the context.
Thanks

    Yes, but we'd leave out 'from' and say he suffered a cerebral thrombosis.

    Suffered from sounds to me like a long-term condition.
    Sounds like long term to me too. 'She suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for many years.'
