Question from Toni2: I am one year post-chemo, radiation and a hysterectomy. I have noticed some improvement with memory. Is there anything I can do to help improve it further? I am 40 years old and this is very frustrating. Thanks for your help.
Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. There are issues related to memory loss as we all age and there are actually some interesting books that are written describing how to keep your memory in shape. They're focused primarily on older people, but keeping mentally active, reading, doing puzzles, and being intellectually engaged in some activity will exercise your brain just like you would exercise your body.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Thinking and Memory Challenges featured Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. and  moderator Marisa Weiss, M.D. answering your questions about the memory and concentration challenges that can happen during and after breast cancer treatment.
