I have the beginnings of peripheral neuropathy at chemo cycle 5 and it seems to be slowly getting worse. It's mainly in my hands, but I also felt it in my foot today for a little while. I only have one cycle to go so I'm hoping I can hold out until I finish. It's really mild right now, but I'm concerned about it getting worse. I read an article about it:
They talk about problems which are more common above accumulated doses of 600mg. I'm getting 147mg per dose so that works out to almost exactly 4 cycles which is where I just passed.
Have others here had this problem? If so, I would like to know when it occurred in your chemo cycles and how severe it was. I know some people have to reduce dose or even stop with chemo altogether. I'm hoping that wont be the case with me although I have only one cycle left. Let me know your experiences. Thanks.
