Brain Fog: You may be suffering from cognitive dysfunction, "brain fog", brought on by underlying conditions that affect mental function, performance and memory loss. Many times, this may be due to lack of hormones (thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, dhea & pregnenolone) and/or b vitamin deficiencies. Have these evaluated and treated. Most times, your brain function will return.

Accept it: Make sure pt. Has a diagnosis (like dementia). Once diagnosis is sure you have to avoid taking it personally when the patient does not recognize you or ask you the same thing often. Follow the flow, do not get angry with him. Try to ventilate your frustrations with a positive and productive way. Involve the whole family. Reserve some time for you personally to do thongs you use to love.

No worries.: 5 years is a long time to worry about that! most things people swallow do pass...And are often missed even when looking for them! chances are you did pass them. If they were stuck in some fashion, i would think you would have had some GI disturbances. You can ask your md if he/she thinks an xray would be helpful at this pint. Most of us would say no..Not after 5 years. Not to worry.
