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!
