"Chemo Brain"

Postby Pagola44 » Mon Feb 26, 2024 7:07 pm

Hi all,
I have finished my 12 cycles of folfox, I noticed from about the half way point in the regime i started developing 'chemo brain' - fogginess, poor memory, slow cognition etc. I finished my last treatment about a week ago and noticed my brain still feels that way. Did anyone else experience 'chemo brain' and how long did it take for you to recover?
