Thanks, Hopeful. I order a copy of the study using the PatientAccess link. The cost is $3.50. I'm very excited about this study, because Patty Ganz has been one of our biggest and best advocates, but I haven't seen much from her lately. Had me a little worried, but I'm reassured that she's still working to find answers.

Rhondalea, I was thinking of you when I saw this. Thanks for all of your posts describing your journey and documenting chemobrain's effects - they are an invaluable record.

Thank you for that. It's very encouraging for me to see this is being worked on because it's something we all have to deal with to varying degrees, and we should never have been left to muddle through on our own.

I have updates--I just can't seem to get to them. Every time I try to organize my thoughts, I get sidetracked. Apparently I'm better at bitchin' than I am at talking about good news. The treatments I've received (and continue to receive) are helpful, and in a lot of ways I'm doing much better.

With this link as inspiration, I'll try to get to it this weekend. :)

so this wasn't what I was hoping for, "Ganz and Ercoli found that the early intervention group (32 women) reported improvement in memory complaints and test functioning, while the delayed intervention control group (16 women), did not improve in either their cognitive complaints or test performance." Hummm that sounds like, if you have it, then it might be too late. Someone please re-translate...
