1. Jim has had neuropathy since the last week of radiation/chemo. He was on Oxaliplatin and 5FU. Does this go away or is
it something he'll have from now on. Both feet are affected, the left one more than the right. Toes and the balls of both
feet are numb, as well as his fingertips. They always feel cold to him also.
2. What does Herceptin do? Is it used only when the patient is in remission, or does it help get them into remission? We
still haven't heard if Jim's tumor was tested for the HER-2 gene. I'm just trying to line up options, since they didn't give us
anything but more of the same chemo.
Still waiting for info on whether Jim would be helped by the Therespheres therapy. The Dr should be back in the office
tomorrow and will review the scans then.
Until then, I research, pray and wait!
