My sister 50 years old had breast cancer 5 years ago. She had surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. After that she was put on oestrogen blocking medication (letrozol), which she has been taking for three years now. So far so good. With time she has developed distinctive memory impairment (she has university degree, she’s always been very alert and smart). She can not remember if she has just had her tablet or not, she loses track, she has difficulties learning new things, she is bad at multitasking, she is even reluctant to make official phone calls because she is afraid she won’t be able to follow. She has had MRI of the brain and it didn’t show any changes. We have asked the doctor if it could be a result of oestrogen loss but he says he has never had a case like that. Our dad developed dementia when he was about 80, but 50 sounds a bit early. Has anybody experienced something similar? It is sad to see her like that. Thanks.
