14 months post surgery and yes.  Definitely significant loss of memory for me.  The doctors position is that the tumor location of the brain has nothing to do with memory function. Your sharing provides a sense of relief to know I am not alone.

Hi,

I also suffer from memory loss after the AN operation and my memory isn't what it used to be.

It is also taking it's toll on my work as I am a programmer and I often need to repeat tasks as I lost track of what I did the day before or sometimes a few hours before.

I still hope everything will improve and keep on doing the best I can.

Regards,
Frederic

Hi Frederic, as a coping mechanism, consider adding a comment something like //#UTH Need to parse this string and ensure first five parameters are strings and the last two are floats. Be careful about endiness.

That way when you come back tomorrow, you know exactly what the next planned step and anything to watch out for. This is what I do. Sometimes even just before meetings. I also keep several small notepads hand to record information that I may require soon (as well as the usual one for making notes).

I am definitely going to do that I am sure it will help!

Interruptions are the worst, when I am in the middle of something and I get interrupted I need to figure out where I left of.

Never needed to do that before the surgery, could jump right back where I left of.

Going to apply that from now on when I get interrupted too, just make a note or comment before I attend to the person interrupting me.

Thank you  :)
