Memory issues since start of treatment

in Dec 2015 I had a spinal fusion of C3, 4, & 5...follow up MRI shows bones not fusing as desired and I started wearing the Orthofix around my neck 2 months ago, 4 hours a day every day. I have at least 3 more months of use. 

My question is: has anyone experienced memory loss with use of this devise? I am NOT experiencing any pain, however, my mind will occasionally just go BLANK, then it takes a while to remember what I was thinking. This has happened only since use of devise began. Could this be a side effect of use???

    Hi rosealeta
    I experienced temporary memory loss after my surgery but not from wearing a device. Can you check with your doctor or maybe even the manufacturer to see if it's a side effect?
