According to the Mayo Clinic: “Chemo brain is a common term used by cancer survivors to describe thinking and memory problems that can occur during and after cancer treatment. Chemo brain can also be called chemo fog, cancer-related cognitive impairment or cognitive dysfunction.
Though chemo brain is a widely used term, the causes of concentration and memory problems aren't well-understood. It's likely that there are multiple causes. No matter the cause, chemo brain can be a frustrating and debilitating side effect of cancer and its treatment.”

Proving Cognitive Impairment Affects Your Abilities
While there are many causes of cognitive disorders, they are often seen as invisible conditions. This is due to the fact that these impairments often don't show up like an obviously broken leg but can affect everything from your judgment and memory to your emotion regulation. We work with doctors and other specialists to put together a case that illustrates your inability to work due to your cognitive impairment. For example, we can have a neuropsychological evaluation done to document your cognitive deficits and impairment.
Common Symptoms of Chemotherapy Induced Cognitive Impairment:
- Forgetting things that are usually easy to recall (memory lapses)
- Trouble concentrating (can’t focus, have a short attention span, may “space out”)
- Trouble remembering details like names, dates, and sometimes larger events
- Trouble multi-tasking, like answering the phone while cooking, without losing track of one task (they are less able to do more than one thing at a time)
- Taking longer to finish things (disorganized, slower thinking and processing)
- Trouble remembering common words (unable to find the right words to finish a sentence)
If the symptoms of chemotherapy induced cognitive impairment prevent you from working, Dabdoub Law Firm can help.
