3rd Chemo Therapy Treatment

3rd treatment on September 14th, was unevetful but I was anxious to get home. Same side effects with the joints and muscle pain.

A new side effect - my toes and the bottom of my feet have gone numb - and I have severe leg weakness. It can also causes leg cramps which I have not experienced yet. I have read about numbness with chemo - it is nerve damage that may or may not correct itself. It will take up to six months or more after the last chemo treatment. My hands have some numbness but nothing like my feet. The oncologist said that if it interferes with my walking we will have to stop chemo.
