I am on the ICON 8 Trial, testing if weekly treatment is better than 3 weekly treatment.
I have had 11 weekly Chemo treatments of Taxol/Carbo, (of !8 weeks) and have been experiencing a chance to sensations in my fingers and toes. In the last week I now have very painful ankles and a pain in my right buttock when i weight bear.
My GP said it could be the Sciatic nerve, suggesting nerve damage.
I have told the Oncologists about my hands and feet feeling tender and so far my treatment dose has remained the same. Tomorrow I have an appointment to see the Consultant Oncologist with the idea of reviewing the dose I am currently on.
Part of me doesn't want the dose reduced, but I do not want to end up with permanent nerve damage.
My symptoms are slowing me down a bit.
I am also having trouble sleeping.
