Loss Of Memory After Crash With Head?
Hello, last night around 7-8am my father had an accident, either he bumped into him or how he was unconscious, he remembers knowing that he was already in the car and brought to the hospital around the incident, well then at 10 I came to the ER and he didn’t remember me. and my brother as his son, all he remembers is my mother and my youngest sister but after a few hours he returns to normal, remembers everything and has time to talk until he can be sent home from the ER. This morning my mother suddenly woke me up my mother said that my father had relapsed but it was worse he didn’t remember what he was screaming (where is this, please find my child and please tell his mother he left, my wife ran away leaving me, ouch headache ouch) even though my mother and I were in the house but she didn’t remember me and my mother all she remembers now is only my brother until now even though he has been taken to the hospital in hospitalization
Injury or impact on the head has the risk of causing disturbances to the brain, so there is the possibility of causing central nervous system disorders that can have an impact on memory, behavior disorders, or paralysis of the person.
So some people who have severe head injuries will forget what happened when the impact occurred, or even lose memories long before the incident (such as what has been learned, remembered such as name/face/address, etc.). In addition, memory disorders can also occur where the person becomes unable to make new memories / memories after the memory loss condition occurs.
This situation also causes behavioral disturbances, for example, someone who is a calm, patient person since the incident has turned into someone who is angry and speaks harsh words. Or just the opposite.
This situation requires further study to be able to provide the best treatment for the person, so evaluations such as by a neurologist or neurosurgeon or other surgical disciplines (because of the accident) have a big enough role in knowing the condition of the patient. Patients with this condition should be hospitalized because they require regular assessment by a doctor, because the risk of worsening the condition can occur at any time. The doctor who treats you of course already understands the patient's condition based on the results of the examination he has done, so that in order to avoid misunderstanding of information, it is better to discuss it with the doctor who treats him, because I have limited information because I did not do an examination of your father.
Hope it is useful
