Memory Loss due to stroke

barklow posted:
My husband has a serious of mini strokes over the last several months. The most recent episode caused short term memory loss that the doctors say will more than likely not return. How do I deal with the condition my husband is in. He doesn't remember anything that I tell him and becomes very agitated when I try to tell him things that he doesn't remember. I have been learning more patients than I thought possible but some days are very combative with him not believing the things I tell him. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. He has been home from the hospital for a week now.

I would ask his doctor what they recommend. Maybe if you discuss it with his doctor with both of you there, so that the doctor can verify the memory loss with him. But there can also be personality changes from strokes which may him be unreasonable. I would ask his doctor what they recommend.
