My mother recently had surgery and now is experiencing significant memory loss. The doctor said anesthesia sometimes affects memory. How long will this last, and is there anything we can do to help her recover? Surgeons and anesthesiologists are aware that surgery may pose risks to mental function, especially in older people. They call this condition postoperative cognitive decline (POCD). There is controversy as to whether the problem is brought on by anesthesia or by surgery itself.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Jim Palmer comeback entered a new stage yesterday, when he threw batting practice for the first time since 1985.Palmer pitched for 15 minutes to Bill Ripken, Bob Melvin, Cal Ripken and Dwight Evans, who did not spend a lot of time swinging and missing, but didn't pepper the parking lot, either. The results were mixed, about as mixed as the signals coming from Palmer after he left the mound."I felt good, and the guys said I threw good batting practice," Palmer said, "but whether that translates into getting hitters out, find that out in 10 days or so."

Now that the weather is cooperating, I've been jogging outside and playing a lot of tennis. Yesterday I was on the tennis court when the outside of my left knee, on the back of my leg, began really hurting. What happened? "Pain in the back of the knee reflects what's happening in the front of the knee," says Dr. Michael Mont, director of the Center for Joint Preservation & Reconstruction at the Rubin Institute for Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital. You may have injured your lateral collateral ligament - LCL - which provides stability to the outer part of the knee.

Everyone in the group agrees: What brings them together each week is a pain in the neck. Or the knees. Or the back. Or just about any other place where pain prowls. "I never know when it's going to hit," said Columbia resident Margee Flowers, 85, detailing her facts of life matter-of-factly to a sympathetic crowd. "Whenever it wants to, it comes." At Florence Bain Senior Center in Columbia, people dealing with the tribulations of aging have an outlet beyond the age-old tradition of complaining about it - they belong to a support group.

A co-worker just recommended Splenda to me. What can you tell me about it? How does it stack up against other sweeteners? Buckle your seatbelts, sugar lovers. For those who don't know Splenda, it's roughly 600 times sweeter than sugar. Wow! Just as NutraSweet and Equal are brand names for aspartame, and Sweet 'n Low is the brand name for saccharin, Splenda is the product name for sucralose. Unlike its predecessors, calorie-free sucralose is actually made from sugar. According to the Food and Drug Administration's Web site and the official Splenda site, sucralose makers begin the process with sucrose.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts soaked in a whirlpool yesterday, only his head visible above the water, while his teammates ate breakfast and dressed for the workout. It's become part of his morning routine. Some players drink coffee and read the local paper. Roberts tries to remove the aches from his body. Roberts missed his second consecutive game because of soreness in his left groin that's unrelated to the back stiffness that kept him out of the opener.

Have you begun a new exercise program, only to find that unwelcome aches and pains slow you down? Are you asking yourself why, and what you can do for relief? The first step to dealing with exercise-related pain is determining whether it's good or bad. Can any pain be good? Actually, yes. Certain muscle aches are a sign of exertion - an uncomfortable declaration that you are conditioning your body - rather than injury. We're talking about the burning sensation you feel while trying to complete those last three biceps curls, or the muscle soreness you experience a day or two after a workout.

Before you decide to take your arthritis to Arizona, consider these surprising new findings about the influence of weather and climate on chronic pain: Patients living in the relatively warm, dry climate of San Diego reported a greater sensitivity to changes in the weather than those who had to cope with the cold and damp conditions of Boston or Worcester, Mass.A better bet than any of those three cities for chronic pain sufferers seeking relief from the vagaries of weather might be warm and moist Nashville.

A number of teams, including the Washington Bullets, could be kicking themselves for passing over Stanley Roberts, the 7-foot, 265-pound center from LSU who was finally claimed by the Orlando Magic with the 23rd pick in the 1991 NBA draft.After several crash diets, Roberts, who played in Spain last season, is finally beginning to show signs of his potential. In a recent 10-game stretch for the Magic, he averaged 17.3 points and 9.7 rebounds.With his strong inside game, Roberts might have served as a perfect frontcourt complement to the Bullets' Pervis Ellison, a strong forward masquerading as a center out of necessity.

With the experience and wisdom they've accumulated, our senior citizens should be considered a national treasure.Instead, when they step into the drugstore they often get the short end of the stick.Although older people take the most medicine and support the pharmaceutical industry with their hard-earned dollars, their 0` needs are often ignored.There's a stereotype that the older customer is difficult: hard of hearing, slow-moving and likely to complain about side effects. In reality, he probably doesn't object nearly as much as he should.

There were times last year when walking in the South Carroll hallway was a painful adventure for senior goalie Kendra Pulis.She first noticed problems with her right shoulder when she was taking throws during the second day of practice in her sophomore year.After, there were dislocations, blackouts from them, cortisone shots and a number of guesses from doctors -- tendinitis and bursitis were a couple.The final straw came late last season in a game against Westminster when she blacked out after making a save.
