- Question from CarlaG: What kinds of tests can a person take to find out for sure if she has chemo brain?
- Answers - Christina Meyers I have to protect my trade here, but you have to go to a neuropsychologist who knows how to test for brain function.
- George Sledge, M.D. That's an important point. Your medical oncologist or internist may be able to tell you what it's NOT, but you need a neuropsychologist to tell you what it is.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Managing Chemo Brain featured Christina Meyers, Ph.D., A.B.P.P. and George Sledge, M.D. answering your questions about how long chemo brain can last, what treatments can be helpful, and current research on cognitive effects of breast cancer treatment.
