hi my 66 year old mother fell and broke her hip after she came out of the surgery sheis now very confused she remembers certain things people but some things like what hospital you in she dont know or what you had for breakfast so doint remember before her accident she was a little forgetful i blamed that on the beer she likes to drink but now im confused with her confusion dr.s say ill go away after a month or so have any one been in my situation?
Also when they are out of their environment of the home they can get like that. The only thing I would ask about her blood panels making sure everything is coming back normal such as potassium, sodium, and such. My mom at 93 had a bad case if diarrhea her sodium level got so low it was as if she had Alzheimer's for about two weeks. She normally is pretty clear, even has a Facebook acct.
How long has it been since surgery? You could always ask for a Neuro exam in about a week if she hasn't cleared up some.
I know I was worried my mom had a stroke or something so I know how you feel.
You say last wed do you mean two days ago wed or the wed before last ? If its the latter the I think I would ask for a Neuro consult just in case. Remember they work for you! Good luck let us know how it goes cathy
