@nycdave7 I was reading you post and what you said is a good question. The mayo clinic is exceptional for year l didn't know what was going on with me after a TBI. And my pcp didn't even know and he told me that finally. Then in 2014 after l had my TIP surgery for liver disease. The doctors couldn't figure out why l.was still falling, slurred speech, tremors and disorientation. After going to the Mayo clinic and seeing several doctors and many test. I finally found out they did the TIP surgery wrong. And one of the extra veins in my liver is going a different way either of the normal way. I am still having some problems like slurred speech, falling and disoriented. I went to my new neurologist last month. I knew l went to the hospital but l didn't know what he looked like. I thought he was short and he is tall. And he wanted me admitted to see if l having seizures and they said they told me about this and l can't remember that. And l was arguing with them because they had made the appointment
Then they referred me to a GI doctor and his office said they called me and l told them l didn't need a GI. And l.dont remember that either. And l don't have dementia l had a PET test and a 4hr cognitive test at the mayo clinic and it came back normal but patients with hepatic encephalopathy will have memory problems when their ammonia levels are elevated. But l can do everything like any other person who doesn't have a sickness. I drive, cook, walk, shop, do garden work. And l took a landscape class and l am writing a book about my illness. And soonl.am starting a business helping others with disabilities. And l am reading more book then l every did in my entire life. So l think you will like it and you will get an understanding about your health problems and you will come back with confidence that you can overcome your illness. Good luck and enjoy yourself.
