My uncle has been treated for Lymphoma for the past ten years, but over the last several months he has become increasingly more confused. He has undergone blood tests and an MRI and nothing was noted that would indicate that his lymphoma had spread to his brain. Starting this past week he gets in the car and forgets where he's going. He repeats himself constantly. He just came from an appointment at UCSF where we hoped we'd get a diagnosis and the only thing that they could assure us was that his problems are not mental or memory related. His blood chemical levels are all over the place and we can't get an explanation as to whether or not this is causing his diminished mental capacity or is a result of it. Please if anyone has experience with this scenario, we could really use the help. Thank you.View Thread
