Chemo brain is real. It is the condition that refers to a general forgetfulness or inability to focus as a result of chemo medications. Oftentimes, this can be a real concern when visiting your doctor. Remembering your questions or concerns for your doctor, or remembering what your doctor tells you can be a real challenge. But there is help and it's sitting right on your smartphone.
My Doc Notes is a new free smartphone iOS and Android app that helps patients remember important questions for their next doctors’ visit and what was said during the appointment. With the app, recalling important information has never been easier. It features an easy way to record questions, either by voice or text, for their next doctor visit. Patients can also record their doctor’s visit in a voice memo and play it back later. Those using that app can also upgrade for $1.99, which enables the recorded memos to be emailed. All proceeds of the app go to fund cancer patient education, advocacy and research.
