She has a badly deteriorating spine and is on heavy meds for pain. Her doctor just retired and she hasn't seen the new one yet, not till next month; besides, he won't know, because he will only see her a few minutes. Any suggestions?

Pain medication can affect the memory.

The new Dr. will have access to your mom's medications. When you take her to the Dr. next month tell him your concerns about her medications and her memory. If you have a few questions for the Dr. write them down before you go so you don't forget.
