Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Have the Vit B 12 levels been checked?Meat eaters turning vegetarian can have these quite low..
You are quite correct, there is nothing specific in the findings of the CT scan,
I would recommend an MRI imaging, since CT may not be very accurate in picking up all the changes.
Also, I would agree that since your father had improved after coming home, a progressive condition appears less likely,
I hope I’ve provided the information you were seeking. If you are happy with my service, your 5-star rating at this time is appreciated. A TIP would be even better! If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.Warm Regards,Dr. Gupta, MD
Unfortunately I am a practising physician in India,
I would hence be unable to interface in any meaningful way with the local doctors.
I can certainly connect on the phone with you using JustAnswer interface, but I don't believe that talking to anyone in the hospital services would be very useful,
All the best & Stay Safe,
Feel free to get back :)Also, even if you give a 5 star rating & a TIP, the question still remains open till you say so,
I have gone through the videos, & I agree that this certainly does not appear to be a progressive dementia from what I have seen.
Certainly a review with the neurologist, and an MRI would be helpful in deciding how to proceed further :)He seems like a very nice & gentle person !
Warm regards& All the best,
Stay Safe and keep him safe too ..
I can understand and agree with your frustration,
No one likes to admit they are wrong, and ( guess doctors are no exceptions ...
What I would suggest is that you try to talk to them about getting an MRI done to just see the extent of the "vascular dementia" so that this can help in deciding how the injury is likely to proceed.
They may be willing to do this, Warm regards
The fact that an MRI was done is great news, and the fact that no specific problem was found is great too.
At least they were willing to admit that your request was reasonable :)
If there is 'just ' dementia, then it does not need specific therapy,
Continue to stimulate him with multiple activities, and he should remain in good spirits !Warm regards
You are welcome ...
They would not just say it, I am fairly certain ...
Wait for the reports,
And take care,
Always a pleasure,
Take care & Stay Safe
