Eric suffered from memory loss; What happened to him?

In December 2018, Eric underwent surgery for a pinched nerve. He said it was relatively routine surgery for his spine. He was showing short-term memory symptoms. But after the surgery, he started to have dull-pain headaches.

Eric remembered everything he needed to know to do the weather, but still, he knew he was experiencing some kind of mild cognitive impairment somewhere.

After sharing his honesty with the audience, Eric received many support concerns and advice. He even took leave the following year to undergo numerous tests, but none showed what was causing his cognitive difficulty. He was quite confused if the symptoms connected to prior surgery.

In the meantime, he returned to work without knowing what’s causing his memory lapses. However, he did want to be honest and shared what he was going through but did not make his medical condition and reports public.
