CABG and temp memory loss
mike1951 posted:
I had a 5 way bypass in 1992, and, I can confirm reports of related temporary to moderate memory loss post-operatively . Over the years this memory loss seems to be slow, but, progressive, and insidious. It is better to seek the advice from your Cardiologist, but, such episodes are common after extensive heart surgery. Many factors contribute to memory loss, so, it is always best to let the experts do the diagnosing since this can be difficult especially as time goes on, but, there is hope as well as treatment.
