... cognition? I was a psychotherapist. It's very difficult for me to hold thoughts, like someone's name or a number, remember details, read a book with a complicated plot. I'm easily overwhelmed by anything other than simple tasks. This change began during treatment but gradually worsened over time to the point where I can no longer work. I had 20 IV doses of trisenox in spring of 2005. I survived NK Cell Lymphoma. Thank you

Yes. I received 48 treatments with Trisenox for Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia in 2003. My cognitive issues were worse early on but, while they have improved, they still exist. I get very frustrated sometimes but that only makes matters worse. I also have continued tingling in the bottoms of both feet and have some hearing loss that has been attributed to the Trisenox and another med I took for the leukemia-(ATRA). You are not alone in experiencing the cognitive changes. In my case, while I do get frustrated by the problems, I know that I probably wouldn't be here today without the treatment. Hang in there... hopefully things will improve for you over time.
