I am almost three years out of my last transplant and ever since i got sick I have problems remembering things. I thought it would get better by now. Anyone else with a similar expeience?
Michael here. I had leukemia when I was 21. I am now 30 and still have memory problems! I am in school right now trying to earn a degree in Oncology Social Work. Remembering, learning, studying is difficult for me from radiation and chemo. Talk to your doctor about your memory issues. Someone else here mentioned a pill called Ginko-something or other. I think I am going to look into that. Take care.

I am 26 and only 1 year out of chemo/radiation and know how you feel. Sometimes I think I am going crazy with the things, especially details, that I completely forget about. This isn't cool for someone who's mother has Alzheimer's, you never know which one it might be. :-). In either case, if you hear of anything, or if anyone on the site has any good ideas, please post them!! I will talk with my doc too, but it never hurts to hear from the community.
The stuff Michael is talking about is Ginko Biloba and some people do believe that it works. I know it was one of the alternative therapies that my mom was on. You just need to be careful since it is not regulated and can react with some medications. It is one thing I will probably mention to my doc as well.
