My wife finished 6 21 day rounds of chemo and 3 months of fractional radiation for two secondary brain tumors . One was surgically removed and biopsy showed secondary. A week or two following her last chemo treatment she developed some minor memory issues and in the ensuing 8 weeks it has gotten worse. Is this a 'normal' timeline for chemo brain. She even forgets that our only daughter was killed in a car wreck 4 years ago. It is very difficult for both of us to continue reliving this over and over. Her oncology provider seems to think it is normal .
Can chemo brain have this degree of severity?View Thread
