never heard of it. kind of sounds like a joke. however i did do a search on it and this is what i found... brain drain(n.) The loss of skilled intellectual and technical labor through the movement of such labor to more favorable geographic, economic, or professional environments. but that isnt any medical lingo. its a economic term...why would her doctor tell her that? and it doesnt usually apply to an individual but is a statement that implies many many people. weird..perhaps you should ask the doctor to clarify what he meant by that.
