Dear Virtual Friends,
About 6 month ago I posted that I had been tested for Cognitive Disruption based on the TKI's. I am not sure why it took so long, but I have finally received the report.
I was willing to share the guts of the report, but after the following comment was made, I have edited this report. I had originally allowed you to see the direct problems that had been reported. But since it is more important that attorney's are never allowed to be seen as human, I have edited the the amount of information severely. The only reason I am keeping it up at all is that it shows that there is congitive disruptions caused by the drugs that we take and I hope someone else might be helped by it. Clearly, I had been too forthcoming the first time.
formal exam at the present time, she demonstrates a rare combination of very strong verbal and

experiencing late effects of chemotherapy. These can be seen in some areas of sustained or
complex working memory, higher level verbal abstract reasoning, and with some very mild reductions
in right hand tapping speed, and certainly peripheral causes of this should be excluded.
1. Individual speech language pathology treatment to assist in fine-tuning areas of verbal
reasoning and working memory as well as efficiency of auditory comprehension and verbal
2. Rehabilitation psychology support to assist with accurate self judgments, and to assist in
coping with depression and features of her chronic illness.
3. Consultation with Rehabilitation Counseling to give Caroline the opportunity to discuss the
practical implications in her day-to-day life outside the clinic regarding future productive activity.
