My father had a aorata anuersym repair on 1/14 and has been mentally confused since. He was fine 6 hours after surgery but "fried" the next morning. He is now in memory care facility and not improving. I read about wernicke korsakoft syndrome and wondered if that could be the cause. Anyone have experience with the confusion side of this illness?
