I finished chemotherapy in 2003 adriamycin,cytoxin,taxotere and xeloda.. I have had some trouble remembering things or forget what i am doing, it seems to have worsened in the last 6 months...is this side effects of chemo
Sounds like Chemo Brain to me. I still have it as well. I heard a study was done and some of us get sharper after the chemo and some of us...like you and I still have the chemo brain. Don't worry. Do things to keep your brain active. I do crosswords everydya and paly scrabble on the computer.
Hope this helped.
