In brief: Many have catalogued

Cognitive deficits after brain radiotherapy treatment.
Few are permanent, but some may me. Time will tell, and no specific post treatment pill fixes this. Another image is needed to assure that there are no anatomic causes, and there are issues like hydrocephalus that need evalaution. Formal testing of cognition can measure change, positive or negative. Discuss with oncologist/neurologist.
