Hello, I am a first time poster and have been looking at this forum for some time now. My Husband (Robert) was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia nearly 3years ago. Obviously things have gotten a bit worse since he was first diagnosed. We went to the Local NHS hospital and my husband went through the test that he should have. We received the letter confirming that he had dementia soon after. We visited the same doctor for 2 and a half years and said that he had to get worse before he could give the drugs to help him. My son and 2 daughters advised me to see another doctor (just for a 2nd opinion) and to see if he would prescribe any helpful drugs or tips. Low and behold on the first visit he prescribed Ebixa and also ran some new tests on Robert. Robert had an appointment to go and see the new doctor for the test results about 3 months later. We could not believe what he was telling us... Robert DID NOT have dementia!...but to triple check the doctor would have some more test on him. We are due back on 3 weeks. The Doctor said that Robert was having mini blood clots in the brain which were making him loose some of his memory and hallucinating, and that if the 3rd set of results confirm what he thinks it is then there are tablets which will stop the blood clots. He stressed that he will not go back to how he was before, but he will not get any worse. Has anyone here come across this before? and help or advice or anything would be very welcome wendy.
