While waiting for my acdf I had a TIA. and have had another 1-2 after. All this has happened w in the last yr. My memory and confusion has gotten worse. It’s beyond “where did I leave my keys?”, forgetting appt times etc. I’ve actually forgotten/forget events, things I say and do. I very often forget what words to use in conversations or when I’m explaing things. Have a hard times focusing etc. Nothing like what I was like before. I did have spinal compression and they say I have cerebellar ataxia. I’m 1yr post op. In the beginning they said wait a yr and see how you’re doing. Now a new neurologist (my “2nd opinion”) said it could take 2 yrs for nerves to get back to normal, or longer f etc. My neurosurgeon said my nerve damage is permanent. My husband doesn’t think my memory will come back/get better. I’m only 45 yrs old! So I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this as well?? Thanks. This SUCKS!!
