retina tear and cryo-surgery
After 2 lazer surgeries for a torn retina, I had cryo-surgery for the same tear. And 5 days later had a 5 hour period of complete memory loss and my wife says confussion. After 2 days of hospital stay and testing, including MRI, MRA, EEG, ultrasound of heart and carotid artery (all OK). I have to wonder if the cryo-surgery could have caused a particle to enter the blood stream?
