I have Stage IV Signet Ring Cell Colon Cancer. I did get the neuropathy from the chemo treatment. Due to my blood cells, the Dr reduced the drug that caused the neuropathy at session 8, we stopped all chemo after session 10. The studies do not show much difference in effect between 10 and 12 treatments according to the dr. All the neuropathy for me went away which is a relief. I wore gloves a lot when I had it and I live in Texas were it really isn't that cold!
