His, ma y I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...90 year old hallucinating and delirium after a pace maker change. Up for days seeing and experiencing things. Been 3 days since surgery. THis happened before but was put completely out in surgery. Docs say aenethesia should be out of the system after a day. Something is going on and it is a pattern. Last time it took over a week to get back to normal.
Hi, Thanks for asking. Based on your query, my opinion is as follows. 1. During hospitalization phase, the cognition deterioration is severe at this age. This is causing the symptoms of hallucinations and delirium. 2. This is completely reversible. He will require familiar environment, family support to improve. 3. It would take around 2-3 months to completely recover. Caretaker would be necessary to look after diet, medication and personal care. Not to worry. Hope it helps. Any further queries, happy to help again.
