There has been a big debate over chemo brain for almost as long as chemotherapy has been around. After receiving chemotherapy, a person complains about their ability to remember, learn and they talk about the constant fog they feel they are in.
When a person complains about sharp pains in their toes, the doctor knows it neuropathy and gives them a pamphlet “Living with Neuropathy”. But what about when their thinking is getting foggy?
There are many reasons put forth and all you have to do is search for the term “chemo brain” on the Internet and you will find lots of theories and back and forth. Suggestions about “brain games” are even made to help you get your wits back.
