He has to be woken up to eat. I am the caregiver for my father who is 89 years old. I have seen him in the last few weeks decline from a fall that injuried his left eye severely. He had to undergo surgery on his eye and the Dr. is trying to save his sight in his left eye. He needs to have another surgery this week which required him to go under anesthesia again. He cannot open his left eye and he hurts from the pain. It’s been 3 weeks since his first eye surgery and he had become very confused and sleeps all the time. He has to be woken up to eat but literally falls asleep sitting up. These characteristics appeared all after his fall to his eye. I have seen a decline in him since this last fall. We thought it was from the anesthesia because for an 89 year old man with heart disease to go under anesthesia it can be worrisome. He is suppose to have his second eye surgery this Thursday and I am concerned about his confusion and him going under anesthesia again. He complained of his head hurting him pressure and I had taken him to ER over the weekend where they did a CT scan of his head and chest X-ray and they all came out clear doctors said. They attribute the pain he has is caused by the injury he did to his eye. I’m worried and not sure why my dad is sleeping all the time. Just wondering if it is safe to undergo another Er surgery where he will have anesthesia. Worried this will confuse him even more. Nothing has changed in his pill regimen either. There have been no new meds introduced. He has high blood pressure as well. Just worried about him and not sure what I should be doing as the next step for him.
