My mother had surgery for a brain aneurysm on 4/14/08. The surgeon opened the skull and she had four clips put in. It's been almost three weeks now, and she is now recovering in a brain trauma unit. Physically, she is fine, but her short-term memory is shot, and some of her long-term memory is also messed up. We're getting conflicting direction from doctors and therapists - some say to let time take its course and her memory will be restored, others say to do aggressive therapy now. Those that say to do aggressive therapy now believe that whatever state she's in at 6 months after the surgery is the state she'll be in for the rest of her life. My family and I are confused as to how best to help my mom. Does anyone have similar stories, and/or advice?
