      Hi Amy,

      You are truly heroic! I had WBR last Nov, and I didn't experience any cognitive problems or confusion at all. So I hope you won't either. Having WBR is a walk in the park compared to some other treatments. It's totally painless, like getting an x-ray. I lost my hair, so if your hair is already gone, that may make a difference. Hang in there, and best of luck to you. Lots of positive energy being sent your way.
