Hi,
When he got injury on head you might have consulted neurosurgeon at that time and x ray,MRI,all might have carried out.Old reports can give some important clues about present condition.
At that time Hematoma might have formed or some injury to memory center is likely resulting present memory loss.
Now you consult neuro surgeon and seek his advise.

my mom has been having memory issues. she is 86 and has always been in great mind. What should I do? She has had chronic lyphosytic leukeima since she was 51 and guess you would call her in remission. She has not had any chemo for 12 years. She still is very active but this memory thing is really bothering her and me. Is there some kind of food or supplement that might help.

My 90 year old father is unable to remember yesterday, what activities, what 2+2 = s. He has a young girlfriend and giving away money and items, they are his to do what he wishes, but he doesn t remember paying her Mother s debt. He has shown this person the underslab vaults, etc. He will not listen to us any longer about anything, like going to his doctor s appointment. We do not understand how he cares for her. That he knows she would never do anything wrong. Then any conversation stops. I do not any agency is on our side. The USA government to say is the big one that will not help. I am frightened. Sandi

can a concussion somehow be linked to diarrhea? my son fell and hit his head about 24 hours ago, he had a bad headache for about 3 hours afterwards. he felt better this morning, but throughout the day his headache has gotten worse again, and he now has diarrhea, and he vomited once. this is about 24 hours later. could it just be coincidence?

My doc told me that I m having Intestinal pseudoobstruction & advised using enema fleet once every 3-4days. Btw, I m a tetraplegia due to spinal cord injury 14yrs ago & underwent a sub-total colostomy a year ago. Before the intestinal operation, I had to use suppositories every day over the 13years. After the intestinal operation, my bowel movement was like 3 to 4 times a day which I had no control over it. And now no bowel movement without enema fleet. My question is, is it ok for my body in the long run if I clear my bowel movement once every 3 to 4 days? Is it better for my body if I were to clear my bowel movement daily using suppositories (Like in the past)?
