CANCER JOURNAL - CHEMO BRAIN
The fog in my head after a dose of chemo is not all in my head afterall says an article in The New York Times sent in by a reader.
Doctors are beginning to recognize the brain fog as a legitimate side effect of chemotherapy. Sometimes it doesn't leave after the medicine has worn off. Women report no longer being able to remember where they parked the car or what they were getting from the fridge for their two-year-old. Apparently there is also some link with Alzheimers.
On the plus side, now I have an excuse when I write something Justin doesn't understand! ;-)
