My husband is five weeks post surgery and still in the acute neuro ward following a chronic subdural haematoma. He is still waking up and imagining he is somewhere else or being somewhere or telling our son that he will pick him up shortly.
He has short term memory problems and left sided weakness so his issues clearly lie in the right, frontal area of his brain.
He also had an infection in one of his burr holes so I think this has slowed things down as he is still on IV antibiotics. Please reassure me: how long does this confusion go on for? He has started to remember things during the day and on previous days but often mixes up when events happened.
