Why Is My Mother’s Memory Disturbed After An Accident And Head Bang?
, introduce my name Neni .. I want to ask my 69-year-old mother had an accident and there was a collision on the head, the ct-scan results showed there was bleeding in the brain but neurosurgeons suggested that using drugs alone was not done without surgery, my mother realized she could open eyes when called but often repeat the same question after being answered. What I am asking is whether my mother will return to normal memory as before? How long does the healing process take to be normal again? Thank you
Impact on the head or head injury can cause various conditions for example can occur a warning to the brain. Bleeding that occurs can vary in breadth and magnitude, so if bleeding occurs only slightly then it may not require surgery.
From the situation that your mother experiences, if your mother does not experience disturbance of consciousness, and only forgets a question then that possibility is not dangerous. Symptoms that occur can vary depending on the location of the bleeding. Your mother's memory or memory function may gradually improve if the bleeding has disappeared. But usually the memory / memory in people aged 69 years can not return as at a young age. In the elderly people have begun the process of dementia so that cognitive function and memory decline. The healing process after brain hemorrhage can be different, usually requiring more than 1 month.
Therefore, check your mother regularly to your neurologist or neurosurgeon, so your doctor can monitor the progress of your mother's condition regularly. Take your doctor regularly.
