Currently providing care for my mother-in-law who has a GBM stage 4 (inoperable) which is affecting her short term memory. She has about a 15 second span of time when she can recall, otherwise the last several years are pretty much gone. After 8 months of chemo she seems to have had a slight upswing in her memory. Has anyone experienced a sudden increase in cognitive ability with a patient with extreme memory loss after prolonged chemo? If so, can we expect any of her memories to return, including those that would have occurred over the last 8 months?
Thanks so much
