I have posted about my neuropathy issues before but to summarize my feet are the worst. In December 2018 I stopped driving my car because I couldn't feel the clutch pedal while driving. It was devastating. the pulsing sensations in my legs and the numbness in my feet have recently been lest severe and for the first time months I have driven my car to work this week.
I am able to put my earrings in without difficulty too. I haven't tried buttons because I leave all my shirts buttoned and just pull them over my head.
I am now 10 months since finishing chemo. The tingling in my finger tips is still there, the wet sand feeling or crumpled socks feeling in my feet is still there but I think it will always be there. I think it is now up to me to make the adjustments
All in all I'm happy to be here.

My feet are still quite tingly and weird, but are significantly less numb than they used to be. The soles of my feet still feel like I'm walking on a bed of electricity, but I also can feel some sensation in addition to the jangly tingling. I think my upper calves sense normally at this point, and my lower calves and ankles are only partially numb. I can also partly feel it when I touch my feet and toes, now.
I'm about 8 months out from my last Oxaliplatin dose.

She warned us that it could take years to see improvement but not to lose hope. I know it seems trivial, but recently his feet have become ticklish again! Before he couldn't really feel much sensation except for the electric jolt or tingling so I feel like it's an improvement.
