What is “Chemo Brain?”

When you're undergoing chemotherapy, the side affects you may experience depend on several factors, including your treatment length, the type of drug dosages and your health history. Most side effects are temporary and short-term, ending soon after your last treatment. Some can linger for some time afterward.

If you begin to start to exhibit some uncomfortable or even unbearable side effects, let your medical team know right away. Some side effects, if caught early, can be minimized or even stopped with medication.

Chemotherapy patients and their nursing staff may joke about the effects of chemo brain, but the health condition does exist. Chemo brain symptoms can include difficulty in multi-tasking or concentrating and memory loss. A cancer patient doesn't necessarily have to have gone through chemotherapy to have experienced chemo brain. The American Cancer Society reported that other cancer patients have experienced the same symptoms during other types of cancer therapies.

Doctors believe that there are a few factors that can cause chemo brain. The cancer itself, depending on where the tumor is located, can cause memory loss and other cognitive problems. Some cancer drugs, including drugs taken for other symptoms, like nausea, might contribute to chemo brain.

Still, there are other possible contributing factors to chemo brain, such as the patient's age, and if he or she is experiencing severe fatigue, stress, infections or lack of adequate sleep.

Not all cancer patients, including those battling mesothelioma, experience chemo brain, but doctors have estimated that as many as 70 percent of chemotherapy patients do get chemo brain. While the condition is expected to go away once chemotherapy treatments are completed, sometimes it can linger beyond the treatment period.

Some patients have difficulty telling the medical staff that they are experiencing side effects, perhaps in fear that something bigger may be wrong with them, or they just figure they're experiencing what everyone else is feeling during treatment. It is important that patients tell their oncologists or medical staff about any side effects, including chemo brain, so that it can be resolved or monitored.

If you are experiencing chemo brain, there are some things you can do to help yourself manage your condition:

•    Eat a healthy, balanced diet, which can help with memory and brain function.
•    Try using a daily planner to write down all things that are important for you to know, such as appointments, telephone numbers, medications and events. It may ease your stress and frustration knowing that everything you need to know can be found in one spot.
•    Exercise, but get your doctor's approval first. Exercise can improve your mood, sleep habits and make your brain function better.
•    Don't be afraid to ask for help. If you're feeling frustrated because you keep forgetting something, remember that you are surrounded by medical professionals, friends and family who care about you.
