"I often ask patients about other aspects of their life that can impact cognition, such as sleep, dealing with pain, or medications they're taking." — Mary-Ellen Meadows, PhD
After treatment, some cancer survivors notice problems remembering things, or they may feel as if they are thinking and processing more slowly. You might notice you're having memory lapses, problems thinking of the right words, difficulty concentrating on what you're doing, or not being able to multitask. Cancer survivors often refer to this condition as "chemo brain."
