Unfortunately, studies have shown that even as much as ten years out, chemobrain stays with you. And, it also depends on how much chemo, what it was, and how long you had it.
I am the reigning queen of chemobrain and I have learned to carry a little notepad when I start crying because I can't remember things. I leave little sticky notes all over and a big sign on my door that reminds me if I've got something in the oven before I go off.
MK talked me into getting a timer that goes around my neck. When I'm wearing it, it helps me to remember something's in the oven. Chemobrain is just another one of the things that wasn't in the b/c brochure.

PS - I forgot to tell you that double radiation left my right internal carotid artery 60-70% blocked. I'm sure that this has something to do with forgetting things.
