Foot pain

Postby hayleyo » Sun Nov 19, 2017 4:10 am

Mum aged 80 was diagnosed with colon cancer earlier in the year. She is experiencing burning foot pain originally in both feet but now in one. It is making her feel very down and she's struggling to walk. She is taking no medication for the colon cancer, although several for other issues. She can't see a doctor until tomorrow, could this be neuropathy and is it easily treated?

Neuropathy is what I am thinking too. She did not do chemo? Is she a diabetic?
