Hi Kathy
thank you for trusting HCM
I read your query and understand your concern
It would be more helpful if you provide us with the last radiologic exam your husband undertake (MR)
It is difficult to treat memory impairment after surgery but it has been seen improvement after starting memantine
Discuss with your doctor about my opinion
Hope I have been of help
Stay healthy
Regards
