Re: Peripheral neuropathy post chemo

My son completed 12 cycles of FOLFOX on July 30. After about the 9th cycle, peripheral neuropathy started first in his fingertips, now in the hands and feet.

Re: survivor since 1991

Bomberbob I beg to differ.

You DO have grand words of wisdom to share. You write simply and eloquently. Your words give me hope for my son and all others here who are fighting this battle. Thank you, thank you!

Re: Goodbye

This is so heartbreaking to read both of your posts; I have tears in my eyes. God bless you both for the love and care you have shown to your wives.
I hope in time you will find peace knowing that you did everything you could for them in their final days. My deepest sympathies.
