My mother had Alzheimer also, and I know exactly how you are feeling. I am finding that I'm forgetting things, too, but then when I get around other people my age, they are doing the same thing. We just laugh it off and call it 'brain cramps'. It's hard to not wonder about it, though. I believe the after effects of this surgery do last quite a while. The lack of sleep is one way it really affects the brain. If I don't sleep enough I am really slow mentally. I bet that's your problem, too.My mother has advanced Alzheimer's and no matter now often I remind myself that it's probably not hereditary, I still go there in my mind.
My Smart Phone is way smarter than I am and everything I need lives in it. I have hundreds of "Notes" and "Reminders" and calendar entries. I was very resistant to it at first and now I praise it daily.If I don't write things down I just don't remember so I've become an avid note taker.
