It’s my understanding that some chemo. drugs cause Neuropathy of the hands and feet. Discuss it with your team and see what they recommend.

Hi, I'm Kimberly D P.

Hold ice in your mouth and hold a frozen bottle of water in your hands and don’t wear shoes or socks while they administer oxiplatin. The drug hates cold and won’t travel there. I know this sounds crazy. It works. Research it. You will be surprised! I did it, and it worked. Also. Vitamin b6 and b12 supplements. Good luck!!

Hi, I'm Paulette

I also am experiencing peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet. I had a stem cell transplant in June. The day before the transplant I was given the chemo drug mephalan. The neuropathy has been so bad after receiving that drug. Is there any other relief for this?

Hi, I'm Gordon T S.

I have tried acupuncture, (for treatments) with no noticeable results, talked to a friend after I stopped and found out he tried it (12 treatments) and no success. Now both of us are saving our money and looking for something else.

Hi, I'm Betti

8 years ago I was told, if needed for neuropathy-vitamin B6 and Glutamine. I never had to use it but got small amounts of both just in case.

I was told to use Alpha Lipoic Acid. I never experienced neuropathy. I had 6 chemo treatments for Stage 1 Ovarian CA.

I’ve heard that topical medical marijuana helps.

Hi, I'm JACOB E A.

What does topical medical marijuana mean? Is it marijuana that comes in crime?
