First, thank you for providing this service. Next, I'd like to know how long in general one can expect "Chemo Brain" to last? Mine mostly is a short term memory loss problem. A time problem (difficulty in guessing time of events and order of events - new events since treatment... not older things that happened in my life)
Is it possible that the short term memory loss is more likely caused by something else? I just assume it was the chemo since I don't really have a "something else" to attribute it to... and, that's when it started (toward the end of treatment a year ago until now) It is getting somewhat better but not fast enough ~smile~
We don't know how long chemobrain lasts, but in one of our studies, only about 1/2 of patients who declined on chemotherapy were back to baseline in one year. Given the time of onset and trajectory, it is likely to be treatment related and not something else.
