Memory Loss after surgery
Mom had laminectomy about 3 weeks ago and was doing great.  She developed an infection and the Doctor drained the fluid in his office and prescribed a strong antibiotic.  After 3 days, she became started having memory loss similar to stroke symptoms.  She talks nonsense and cannot concentrate to finish a task.  Her back also became red again.  We took her to the ER and she was admitted immediately with back surgery again to flush away the infection.  After surgery she has been hallucinating and has suffered memory loss, along with talking about the past as if it were happening today.  The Doctors think this is due to the  infection and her memory will come back after the infection is cleared up.  Any thoughts?

Hello Dear,
After the laminectomy,probably the infection must have affected the brain and nervous system and is causing the memory loss.You should get a second opinion and treatment should be prompt.
