RLS and chemo

I forgot to mention in previous posts that I have Restless Leg Syndrome. I am concerned with the side effects of chemo being neuropathy! As I already have RLS is the chemo going to make it worse? If so, is there anything that they can give me? Oh boy, I'm feeling scared right about now. I see my Oncologist on 2/23 which is before I start the chemo and will ask her but just need some advice if any of you have gone through this. Thanks you.

  • Jo, thank you so much for the reply. Gosh there is so much to think about and get scared about. I just had the port inserted on Tuesday and chemo starts on 2/27. I'm glad to hear that you weren't bothered with neuropathy. Are you cancer free now? I hope you don't mind my asking these questions. I am trying to reach out to as many people as I can for information. Of course, I know that we are all different but I still want to hear the experiences. God Bless and again, thank you for responding. Jane
