Talk:Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment
|WikiProject Medicine / Hematology-oncology / Neurology||(Rated C-class, Mid-importance)|
i have just gotten used to footnoted references. That way each idea or factum is tied to a cite below. After I added my input, I noticed that wasn't the scheme being followed. Is the goal to ultimately use footnoted refs? If not, then I"ll conform my addition.Godspeed John Glenn! Will 13:30, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
Moved possible sources
I've removed the following links from the main page - they can be used as references, but aren't good choices for external links and should be linked as in-line citations for the sources. I'll try to integrate later today. WLU (talk) 12:06, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Request to rename this topic Chemo Brain
The term Post-chemotherapy Cognitive Impairment (PCCI) has not been adopted by medical researchers, physicians, oncologists, oncology nurses, or the general public. While there have been complaints about the lack of precision concerning the term "chemo brain", it has nevertheless been adopted by the medical and scientific community.
- That's not a bad idea, and it would comply with WP:COMMONNAME.
- On the other hand, I get two hits at Google Scholar, so the more formal term isn't entirely unused. Do you know what the ICD-10 (or -9) codes might be for this condition? I assume that it doesn't have its own code number, but figuring out what's usually used is sometimes enlightening. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:59, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
This page is very informative but seems to be focused on chemo brain and female reproductive cancers and not all cancers. Chemo brain is common in both male and female patients with reproductive cancers as well as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and others. Is it possible to flesh out this page to include more cancers?

- According to the people who've done the most research, "chemo brain" (used in the long-term sense) pretty much doesn't happen with the other cancers. Consequently, it wouldn't be appropriate to add information about its (non)existence in other cancers.
- Coping techniques should be added to the Post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment#Treatment section (which probably ought to be named "Management" instead of "Treatment" anyway). WhatamIdoing (talk) 20:01, 15 October 2009 (UTC)
