Cancer tip 49

Cancer tip 49 – Okay serious big boy stuff. I read somewhere that the number one reason people quit chemo treatment is neuropathy. It’s not puking, it’s not hair loss, it’s not feeling lousy; it’s the discomfort people feel from neuropathy. So the tip I guess is to know what the symptoms of neuropathy are and realize that a bunch of it will dissipate after chemo is over. Admittedly it can take years (I still have an episode every now and then), but it’s important to know when you make decisions about tour cancer journey. It would sure be sad to make a life threatening permanent decision to a somewhat temporary problem.
