Brain cancer survivor (9 surgeries and 30 doses of radiation5y
How do I improve my memory after a brain injury?This is a difficult answer, but I'll try my best to tell you what I currently do. Effective ways of improving your memory after a brain injury are time and repetition. I have a brain injury after undergoing 9 brain surgeries and 30 treatments of radiation due to brain cancer. As a side effect from aggressively treating this brain cancer, I have been dealing with a brain injury for over 3 years.
In the beginning things were very difficult. I could not walk, talk, or feed myself. After completing in-patient and out-patient physical therapy I regained these abilities. After this time my wife and I started attending a monthly brain injury support group. It was during this time that I came to the realization that I had a brain injury. I was very angry, forgetful due to short term memory issues, and had time distortion. This was all on top of chronic pain and chronic fatigue. My wife took me to a neuropsychologist who formally diagnosed me with an acquired brain injury.
After many months my anger dissipated and my time distortion improved slightly. My short term memory, chronic pain, and chronic fatigue are still with me today.
Focusing on my short term memory problems, I can talk about some of the things that have helped me:
