Brain Tumor Surgery Complications

A meninginoma was removed on Aug. 4, 2008 and a plate was put back in my husband's head.  The first tumor  was removed in Sept. 1988 and because of an infection the skull flap was removed.  This is the third tumor he has had.  Since the surgery my husband is like a different person.  He has lost most of his memory, short term and long term.  He does not comprehend questions asked of him; he does not remember the meaning of most words, and he can be very combative.  At the present time he is in the hospital (five different hospitals since Aug. 3, 2008), and he is being kept sedated in order for the nurses to be able to handle him.  Anyone else had this problem?
