Aorta Valve/Memory Problems

Not sure if the correct method of posing this question but it has turned my life around since I had my Arota Valve repalced three years ago with a "Bovine" Valve. The crux of my question regards my "memory" which has gotten considerably worse. My Family Dr. indicated that he believes I'm suffering from a "Pump Head" experience and I'm currently on Atenolol and Simvastatin by my Heart Dr. and my Family Dr. placed me on Aricept and Namenda which has me in a "Fog" must of the time. Prior to my Surgery I was in perfect health and no issues with memory. I am almost 69 yrs. old and need help!
