Chemo Brain is a reality

Many breast cancer patients have experienced "chemo brain" after having chemotherapy.  I've been asked so many times if this is real.

Unfortunately it is -- there is a discussion on www.inspire.com about Chemo brain, and the Spring 2016 issue of Cure Magazine has a great article all about this problem. 

 Doctors call it CTRCI  - Cancer treatment related cognitive impairment.

You aren't going crazy -- we all learn to adjust to our "chemo brains"
and this article gives us some really good hints on how to cope.
