Question Brain bleed, subcentimeter perivascular space, seizure

In February 2011, I had a brain bleed right frontal lobe significant enough to have a hospital stay of eight days. In May 2011, I had my first and only (knock on wood) seizure.
Currently, I am having a very hard time with my short term memory.
Through MRIs, I have read that I have a "subcentimeter perivascular space". I have read that less that 2mm is normal. As mine is larger, what does that mean?
Also I have a significant amount of white matter.
Any information you could provide me on the above would be fantastic. My biggest fear is dementia/alzheimers as that runs in our family.
Thank you for your time.

Re: Brain bleed, subcentimeter perivascular space, seizure

Dear Carol,

I'm sorry you are going through this. I cannot answer your medical questions.
Just one thing I want to point out, every story is different that much is true. Yet I do hope this can be somehow helpful. 10 years ago my boyfriend was involved in a caraccident, frontal braindamage, several bleeding (size tennisball), month coma, will spare you the details but it was a bad as bad could be. BUT wonder by wonder he made it.
Anyway as far as short memory goes, in the beginning it was a disaster. terrible. keep training, practice, whatever, start with small things. don't give up and don't be harsh on yourself either. Use notes if needed, well whatever works for you. BUT improvement is possible!

Wishing you lots of strenght and take care of yourself!
