Anesthesia

Memory loss

05/28/2008

Question:

I recently had a TLH for removal of 4 lemon-sized fibroid tumors on the uterus. I`m 46 years old. Also involved was a bladder suspension. I have been out of surgery for one month and have noticed a memory loss. Short-term mostly. The surgery was a 4 hour procedure, so what are the possibilities of recovering that memory, if any at all? Will it get better? It`s very noticeable at my job that I have just recently gone back to. Appreciate any answers you can give.
