Why the sudden dementia and unresponsiveness of my elderly Dad?
Question by Larry M: Why the sudden dementia and unresponsiveness of my elderly Dad?
He had a toe amputated due to a bone infection. Was recovering nicely, due to be discharged. On the day he was to go house, he all of a sudden was incoherent and unable to even sit up. Because then, it is as although he’s sedated. He was on no pain medication. Vital indicators are all great. Catscan exhibits nothing. Bloodwork all standard. He’s just asleep and unresponsive. Just hours just before, he was talking about existing events and joking with the physician. What is up?
Answer by essentiallysolo
he may have had a stroke, a CT will not constantly display this, he should maybe have an MRI accomplished.
