Blind,Memmory loss and Disorientation after Cardiac Bypass Surgery
I am posting on behalf of my brother.He just underwent a cardiac bypass surgery at Amrutha Hospital,Cochin,Kerala,India.There were 6 blocks in his heart .1 was 100% ,another one 80% and then minor ones. Surgery got over successfully as per the doctors and now after two days of the surgery..last evening he showed major memory loss..ie not recognizing any body..or himself.. pulling off all his IV tubes and acting mad.. He is blind as well coz he is looking elsewhere when spoken to.Dont now if this condition was prevalent soon after the surgery coz even now we are not allowed inside the ICU.
I am really worried.
The doctors say that this is an extremely rare situation and even they haven't heard of the same.They did a CT scan and found nothing wrong and now they are waiting to get an MRA scan done.
Please throw in some light if any body is aware of whats happening.
