Congratulations on 10 years! I will be celebrating #6 next month. I can't say I'm GLAD to hear you are still having issues with chemo brain, but at least I don't feel like I'm the only one. I honestly thing it has done permanent damage to my memory. And it takes me longer to process information too. I retired about a year and a half ago, and when I was at work if someone asked me a question, I would have to think it about it for quite a while before I could come up with answer! Unfortunately, I don't have any suggestions to cure that! I was lucky to have worked with some very understanding people!

Other Care (Went to PT for probably 8 weeks for lymphedma.): I had my entire left arm and hand wrapped in ace bandaging, including my fingers. It was fun to type! Also my left foot, and had to wear a bootie. Eventually was fitted with a compression glove. Now I feel naked it I don't have it on.
