The article talks about treatment for chemo brain--but it doesn't say what that treatment is. Anyone know?

I am beginning to have these symptoms, but since no chemo, I kept thinking maybe I was having brain mets, but maybe it's what this article describes.

Elaine,

It's either electro-shock therapy or a lobotomy...I'm pretty sure on that... :lol:

(Really, I don't know...willing to turn the info over to my oncologist for HIM to find out...and my neuropsychologist...and my GP...)

I recognized myself too. It's been getting worse and worse. :( I can't think of words - and I am (was?) a writer. It's so freaking frustrating.

Sorry to hear you're experiencing it too Elaine. :(

Yep... words just fall out of your brain when you want them. I have found they turn up later, however. Usually too late to do any good for that particular conversation. ARGH!!....

At least I'm kinda getting used to it now.....

The June 6 issue of US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT had something about the cost of survivorship, and loss of 'executive function'.

Be nice if it WERE outgrowable.

Thanks!

XOXOXOXOX

Prayers always,

MaryAnn
