Your Brain After Chemo: Navigating Through ‘Chemo Brain’*

Good piece on chemo brain and some suggestions on how to manage it. I favour emotional support, exercise (body and mind), eating healthily, and laughter, less keen on prescription drugs and seeing a neuropsychologist. The list:

  1. Ask for a referral to a neuropsychologist.
  2. Seek out emotional support.
  3. Other prescription drugs may help with focus. Talk to your doctor about Provigil, Ritalin and other stimulant pharmaceuticals.
  4. Exercise your body.
  5. Exercise your mind. The “no-pain, no-gain” adage applies to the mind as well.
  6. Eat healthfully. Cut out the junk.
  7. Laugh. Laugh a lot.
