Ponigirl Posted January 28, 2015 Share Posted January 28, 2015 (edited) I am curious how many members (patients) had a)]neuropsychologic testing before being discharged from the hospital, after your brain bleed? If you didn't have the test before discharge- did you have one at a later time? If so when and why? ]The reason I am asking is because I didn't have testing before discharge. I didn't have the test until 9 months after my bleed. The only reason I had the test was because after being back to work for 5 months I called my neurosurgeon and was telling him that I was having a very hard time "adjusting". I told him how I couldn't remember, would get lost driving, crying all the time at work (from stress), and that I felt like something was wrong. The test was extensive! I can't remember what was on the test- other than it was hard/stressful. The results totally surprised me, I scored poorly in every. The result was that I am not capable of working and should be on full disability. However, SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) has denied me twice!! We have appealed it and will continue to fight. I wonder what others experienced. Thanks for your input.
