I had extensive memory loss - and I was only 45 yrs old at the time. At one point for a couple of years, I had no working memory at all and no access to my long term memories. That was highly disturbing, but most of it has come back, and more comes back as I go along, and see physical reminders of things.
At one point I had the same symptoms as late stage dementia patients, not just memory issues, and I've managed to come back from that as well.
Detox very well, stay in treatment and heal. That's the best advice I could give anyone that is going through this. Don't give up and keep doing things that will help your brain 'come back'. I used brain games - easy crossword puzzles, search a word puzzles, jigsaw puzzles - most anything that I thought would help me begin to recognize shapes, patterns, words and things better and more often.
Now, the only thing I really have trouble with is numbers, so I keep a calculator close. LOL.
