Cognitive Dysfunction

Tom I

Recommended Posts

My Mom just completed 5 days of chemo with Topotecan to treat a reoccurance of in her lung and lymph nodes. She was also receiving heavy doses of steriods. She seems to be doing better with her breathing, but now she is totally out of it from a mental state. Her gross motor skills are not good and she can't perform simple tasks like ordering lunch. From what I have read she is showing the symptoms of Cognitive Dysfunction or the cancer has spread to her central nervous system. Her Dr. feels that it might be due to the heavy medication and we should see improvement over the next few days. Has anyone had similiar experiences? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
