Taxol/Carbo recepient here. I felt like a stroke victim from the pain, pins&needles, numbness, etc. I was barely able to walk, and some days couldn't walk. I take B6 and B12 for the neuropathy and Magnesium for the hand, feet and leg cramps. I am now able to walk and live a life (somewhat ... but that's another issue due to radiation bowel).
handsnfeetnumb: I'm sorry you are having to go through all this at once. I'll pray for you.

Also, have your protien levels checked. Low levels also have that side effect.

Thank God!! I've found my peeps!!! I have searched for help, for answers, for anyone else!! My onc doc told me "it's just you" when I complained about the slow mental recovery and the diarrhea/vomitting/both issues. I was diagnosed when I was 39yo, with Uterine stage 3 and ovarian stage 1. After 2 surgeries, 6 chemos (3 weeks apart), 25 extended field rads, and 3 focused rads ... I've been trying to recover for the last 2 years. Granted, I no longer have vomitting and diarrhea every day. I recognize that to be a good thing. But 3-4 days a week of it leaves me feeling horrible! And no one seems to understand why I'm unable to hold down my full-time job because some days I feel great and am active. Of course they don't see me while I'm sick. I am so sick and tired of being sick!! When I'm sick I get depressed. When I feel normal, I feel like I can conquer the world!! Where's the exit ramp for the emotional roller-coaster? Anyone??? lol
Ms Marsha (marshajp), Are you in USA? I only ask because the 2 friends I have that use the word 'loo' are from England. Anyway, if you are, I am on SSDI. Luckily, my best friend threw my butt in the car the next day after my gyn said the word 'cancer'. I say luckily because we (she, mom and I) were able to get the (loooooonnnggg) process started. Feel free to message me.
