Hi to my teal sisters
Whenever I have a problem or question I always know where to come. I just know there will
Question 1. "Has anyone experienced tingling and numbness to one or both hands AFTER chemo?" I often wake to 'pins and needles' in my left hand and arm and the other day when I was swimming I had to stop because the fingers on my left hand went numb. Most strange.
I am guessing this is neuropathy but I finished my chemo March 26th this year and never experienced anything like this whilst taking chemo.
Question 2. "Has anyone felt like their body has been taken over by a really old person with arthrytis (sp?)?" Whenever I get up from sitting my whole body aches and it takes 6 steps or so for me to loosen up. My joints are aching and sore. Is this another legacy of chemotherapy?
I am not really complaining as I am glad I am still here, but it seems strange that I am feeling these affects AFTER chemo.
Love Tina xxxxx
