    head fog!!

    That is my only issue on day 4 post chemo. I feel a bit foggy in the head. Will it go away or does it seem like a possible new normal?

      You know, it's different for everyone. Just remember to drink a lot of water and get some rest. There's a lot going on in your body right now. I remember getting a weird buzzing feeling, like my head was vibrating. Your body will adjust to the chemo and it will get better. It went away for me after a few days; just in time for the next treatment. Is this your first treatment?

      It's called "Chemo Brain". For most, It gets better once you complete chemo. I had it pretty bad but I'm close to normal at this point (1 year out from my last chemo treatment). Hang in there.

      Here is a link to an article from our friends at The American Society that discusses this in detail.
