I lost contact with my brother ten years ago and searched for him ever since. I am just now learning he suffered a stroke and lost his memory.

Since then, another doctor told me that the treatment (starting stimulation on day 21, retrieval on day 7/8) "makes no sense", and others have seconded this. I've asked the clinic why this was done this way... Read more »
