Can Neurological Disorders After Cataract Surgery Affect One’s Cognitive Abilities?
Good afternoon. I want the story from the beginning this disturbance occurred.
Hello Edgar, Thank you for the question.
It is very likely that the cataract surgery that your father underwent has nothing to do with the other complaints he is experiencing at this time. Have you checked your father's condition with a neurologist further? The complaints you submit can be caused by:
stroke, the disruption of blood flow to the blood vessels of the brain caused by a blockage (ischemic stroke) or rupture of blood vessels (hemorrhagic stroke). Disruption of blood flow and oxygen to the brain can cause impaired bodily functions that are regulated by nerve cells so that sufferers can experience symptoms such as weakness in the limbs, difficulty speaking, faces that look asymmetrical, difficulty swallowing, headaches, sudden loss of vision arriving or double vision, vomiting, decreased dementia awareness, which is a condition of reduced brain function such as memory, concentration, thinking ability, language ability, and decreased mental intelligence. This condition is caused by damage to certain nerve cells metabolic disorders or the endocrine system (hormonal system) of the body such as electrolyte disturbances, low blood sugar levels multile sclerosis side effects of drugs Symptoms of difficulty eating in your father are very likely related to the medical conditions they are experiencing. Please consult your neurologist soon more about your father's condition. The doctor needs to ask further questions about the symptoms experienced by your father and examine your father. The doctor will recommend further tests such as blood tests, CT scans, or MRI. The doctor may recommend a CT scan first because the examination time is faster than the MRI. However, if your father has difficulty undergoing the examination because he is not cooperative (due to his condition), then the doctor can consult with an anesthetist to provide anesthesia during the procedure. Before the anesthesia, the anesthesiologist will usually check your father's condition first to assess the risk of anesthesia. Please discuss further with the doctor who will later treat your father. Treatment will be given by a doctor, of course, depending on the medical condition experienced by your father, which can only be known after the examination.
Hopefully this information is useful.
