Re: Neuropathy

Oh yes, how I remember the feet thing Jon. My biggest problem with my feet was not being able to feel things when walking at times and then at times, feel like the sand thing.

Re: God ,statistics,fear,hope

Wow, what a topic. I don't think that we who believe in God at ALL think that we will be cured or healed anymore than the next person. I DO believe that God has given us strength and peace about what is happing to us with this Cancer thing. I think it is all about Faith in the fact that we have Jes...

Re: Neuropathy is increasing after finishing Folfox

I love the new look first off!! You are normal Susan so no worries. I am now 3 years out now from my Chemo and the bottoms of my feet are STILL numb/tingly.

I don't think it has really made me "stronger", but it has sure made me look around and see that we are in this world such a very very short time. It has made me look at my life differently and I know some of you don't want to hear this and think it is just a bunch of bologna, BUT....in my own pers...
