For all of you with tingling feet and toes, numbness etc after cancer treatments you might want to speak to your family doctor about a referral for Neuropathy testing. You go to a clinic usually in a hospital and they do a nerve conduction test and right after you get the results from a neurologist, at least that's how it works here in Canada. They can give you a good idea of what the situation is with nerve damage, if there is any. I am going through testing for it in September.
There are definitely certain chemo drugs that can cause nerve neuropathy but best to talk it over with your family doctor as sometimes doseage received can make a difference too.
All the best,
