    Hi everyone, I'm amazed! I just watched CBS news and saw the topic of chemobrain. I received Chemotherapy back in 1993 and had severe memory loss during the treatments. I have been living with the side effects for the last 21 years and never knew it was something that other ppl had. I must be one of the ppl that it stays with. Now that I know about it, I will look into the treatmnt option although it may not be able to be fixed at this point. Interesting!

    Chemotherapy works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells, which grow and divide quickly. It can also harm healthy cells that divide quickly, such as those that line your mouth and intestines or cause your hair to grow. Damage to healthy cells may cause side effects.
