laughter is the best medicine - chemo brain experiences

25 Aug 2017 18:47

Chemo Brain. What brain.  This morning tried to make mug of tea and put on washing. Ended up pouring fabric conditioner into mug of tea and almost poured milk into conditioner compartment in washing machine.

Any one else doing daft things like this

Oh no, I hope the milk didn't do any damage to your washing machine! On the plus side at least you knew it was a clean cup of tea Wink 

I think quite a few members have experienced chemo brain so will know what you're experiencing at the moment and I'm sure some of them will be along soon to share their stories and anecdotes with you.

Kind regards,

Hi Ruth

I was very frightened of getting 'chemo brain', that my oncologist ordered a brain scan. 

Thankfully it was normal.  I texted my family and told them that they were very impressed

biggest brain they'd ever seen! Lol  (I'm known for being dozey).
