In regard to the news re possible contamination from hospital surgery, I would like to add to this discussion. My mother was confirmed by a Neurologist last year with Lewys bodies dementia, I hasten to add that getting a diagnosis for my mother was not given by NHS as we were given either no diagnosis or just dementia, my mother was suffering with very bad hallucinations, this is apparently a big symptom of Lewys, eventually we saw a private neurologist, and although the diagonosis was worse than we had thought, at least we knew. My question in this in looking back over the year and trying to understand why! My mother had been as it was a private hospital for a routine women's operation, in 2011 she was 86yrs, on the 3rd day after the operation , my mother was Very emotional I put this down to the op. Then in May 2012 I went on holiday with her, she at that Point having difficulty with dressing, walking and her eyes, I put this down to age. But all these symptoms have intensified , she can no longer walk, or stand at all, can't dress herself and is currently in a care home. I am convinced that the op. In someway started this disease in her, also I spoke to another family, her husband had Parkinson's which is the cousin of Lewys Bodies, though both present there self differently, he had also started with this after an operation, as it happens in the same private hospital Can other people ad to this link as to whether anyone else has any experience of this .
