I had Oxiplatin for chemo and radiation. One year now post chemo and have had neuropathy since. I'm also diabetic so it's probably perm.
On Cymbalt for a year, it really helps the pain and my hands. I was still having so much problems with my right hip, so my onc. suggested Glucosomene Condroiton (sp?) wow what a difference it has made! I jump right out of bed, no stiffness, yoga is wonderful, I feel great! I don't even care that I can't really feel my feet! I am learning to live with that, throwing away most shoes that slip off without me noticing! It's gotten kind of funny, but I can't risk falling and getting hurt, so I'm replacing slip ons with shoes with straps. I am NED so far a year and loving life!
