Tag Archives: black out

A man called me a few weeks ago and asked if I could confirm his prognosis for getting dementia. I certainly don't want to be in that situation! However, this man DID have an abnormal signal in his hippocampus in an MRI report and he stated he was told that he was probably going to get dementia. He also had 'episodes' in which he would 'blank out' and not remember what was going on. This week he had his fifth treatment. He reported that his 'episodes' are less frequent and less intense with less duration. Isn't his brain amazing? There's always hope, even with MRI findings that look bleak.
