Anyone out there suffering from chemo brain? I'm one year post treatment and just had a clean PET scan in Sept.
But what about my short-term memory, somtimes stuttering, forgetting words in mid-sentence, tiredness, sometimes dizziness, headaches, joint and muscle aches, weight gain, depression, zero sex drive, mood swings...
Is anyone out there having any of this? Don't get me wrong, I'm HAPPY to have these problems instead of my cancer...at least I'm here to tell about it. I'm back to work [desk job mostly] and I STILL suffer from serious fatigue.
I have heard it called chemo brain, some may say I'm just whining. What I'd like to know is what long term effects people have had after chemo, and what can be done to control them.
God IS still on the throne, and I wish His best to all of you.
