Re: Mini stroke and memory loss?
Welcome. I hope I can help you a little. You say he is your ex-boyfriend but obviously you still care for him deeply, or you would not be seeing him now in the hospital and asking questions here. I can say that his memory will come back. Not totally, but most of it will, but it takes some time. About him asking the same question over and over again, please be patient. His brain had a trauma and his thoughts are all scrambled up right now. I guarantee that he understands what you are saying, but his brain is just working extra hard to understand what is going on right now. Just so you know, it took me 5 days to remember my own wife's name, but I did eventually. Also understand that he may be afraid right now. He is more confused and worried than you are right now, and he probably doesn't even understand that he had a stroke. The first few weeks after a stroke are just crazy, but things calm down and his memories will come back and he can start getting better and he will. I know you two are ex's but he might need you know... I think you still care about him just because you wrote here. If you are there with him now, be patient and loving and it will help him get better sooner.
I personally think that I am a better person after my stroke. I just have a new view on life and appreciate everything. It has been over a year and very stressful for my whole family, but I can say that it was a blessing after everything that happened and it gets better everyday. Things will be o.k. and work out the way they were meant to be.
