Thinking After Cancer Treatment

Research out of Indiana University School of Medicine states that 30%  of patients treated for ovarian cancer have signs of difficulty thinking and processing after chemotherapy or radiation therapy.  Loss of estrogen, emotional stress, depression due to the diagnosis, loss of sleep, financial worries because of missed work, overall illness, lack of nutrition for brain processing secondary to GI problems from chemotherapy might all contribute to such problems. This study just looked at what aspects of brain function were lacking, and did not yet attempt to understand the fixes. But understanding the stresses and strains mentioned can go a long way to fixing what might have gone wrong, so ask your gyno for advice.
