I'm not sure if this goes under cognitive to be honest.
Has anyone else tried to learn a new language after surgery? Or learn anything majorly new? I am a college student (a chemistry major), and I have never struggled in my studies before. However, the last 2 semesters I have not been able to pass a course. When I talked to a teacher about it, he suggested it was because of the AN.
The course is Organic Chemistry 2, which is like a new language according to him. My other chemistry courses are A's and B's, as are my other courses in general. He says that most places that do brain research state that having a tumor of any kind will cause the part of the brain that learns a new language to not comprehend it, which is why I'm struggling. He also says it could be because of the fact that I had Organic Chemistry 1 right before my surgery, and therefore don't remember much of it. Until he mentioned it, I didn't realize that I didn't remember alot of that semester, and now I keep finding other things I have forgotten, unless it is built into my routine. Luckily I am OCD about alot of stuff, including labs, and so I have that going for me.
So I guess my question is this. Has anyone else ever had a problem with this or heard of it? I can't find anything on it.
It's honestly getting kind of disappointing, as I had thought I was past of all of this and back to where I was. And then this stupid class came up.
Thanks to anyone who has any advice or response.
