My brother has been diagnosed with nonsmall cell adenocarcinoma (he had a lobe of his lung removed and one lymph node was positive). He is to be started on Cisplatin and Vinorelbine very soon. He also has had diabetes for some time. I am assuming he will be at increased risk of peripheral neuropathy because of his diabetes. Does anyone have any advice on how to reduce the risk of this side effect or how to deal with it once you have it? Thanks on behalf on my brother (we live in Canada).
