Re: taxotere chemotherapy
I had four rounds with taxol, and the neuropathy was accumulative. The good news is that it does slowly go away. I'm diabetic, and despite being way more susceptible to neuropathy, the chemo neuropathy was totally, completely gone in about 18 months.
But even before that, it had subsided quite a bit. The worst part was my left heel (why I don't know), but one of my doctors suggested I get gel heel cups for my shoes and within a couple of months of using those, the neuropathy in my heel was totally gone.
You may want to use gel inserts for your feet and see if that helps. The less hard pressure on the nerves, apparently the better.
BTW, I had third stage Cancer of Unknown Primary, which is often fatal, but I'm still here enjoying life...it'll be 12 years next month since I finished all treatment...and no recurrences. I'd say the neuropathy was well worth it, especially since it did eventually go away.
