I had 6 chemo treatments last year for ovarian cancer. Drugs were Taxol/Carboplastin. The last treatment was Nov. 17. I had hysterectomy/debulking on Jan. 5 but there are still microscopic cancer cells left. As soon as surgical wound heals, I have to have 2 more chemo treatments. I still have bad numbness in feet along with pain, especially at night. Some of my toe nails and toes are turning color, blackish/blue. Does anyone know if the taxol also causes this? I read other posts for ideas to alleviate numbness and found it to be helpful. I had trouble with my feet before getting cancer. How can I tell what pain is from flat feet and stretched liagaments as opposed to chemo side affects. I have orthodics I wear in my sneakers. Should I go to foot doctor? I take nerotin 3 times a day and it helps a little.
