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.
