thank you, thank you thank you.
i am so happy and relieved I have come across this message board. I thought i was going insane.
My husband had gamma knife radiation on his acoustic neuroma about 2 yrs. ago. we noticed (the kids and I) memory loss in him and mood change. I told his doctors, but no one listened to me. he will sit and ask the same questions over and over, as if he never asked them, he can't follow a long conversation... it is very difficult. I can't have a serious conversation with him because he will forget it, he has very little short term memory. The kids will say they are going somewhere, then later he will get angry because they didn't tell him they were going (when the just said it at dinner the night before).
I am not sure what direction to go now, or quite how to help him, but at least I'm validated and I will keep looking for ways for him to improve his memory. It has been so difficult for the rest of us these past few years. I have to repeat everything.. I try to be patient. I just wait for him to remember something.. anything. or i just repeat as if it is a new conversation now. I try not to get too frustrated. but it is still difficult.
but thanks, and god bless you all in this journey...
