    Side Effects (Chemo brain): My brain felt like a computer trying to run under the load of virus or adware. I knew the info was in there, but it was so slow to come out. LIke Charley in "Flowers from Algernon" after he knew what it was like to have been smart. The chemo brain took at least 18 months to slowly reside. I'm mostly recovered from it, nearly 12 years later. :)

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I had ABVD: doxorubicin (adriamycin), bleomycin, vinblastine, dacarbazine from early Oct. through March. Was shocked at the amount of chemo brain and neuropathy I had. But I am a survivor and the chemo brain healed after about 18 months.
