Dear Val! I had vertigo fatuige about 4 years ago, Doctor give me Valuem . After 2-3 peals Vertigo was gone! About neuropathy, I got it too. I am on Lyrica peals 3 times a day almost for year now. It not make me feel better, but keeps it in a bay. Today I was in oncology department, over there on tabeles I found magazin " Coping with cancer" November/December 2012. Veri good artical "Take Control of Neuropathy". You hade very hard phisical and emotional time, sure it is worsened your health. Take care of your self Val, love you, Zina. ( Please forgive me my English, I did resieve my chemo today and I not feel like I will work with mine Russian-English dictionary). :)

Hi Val,
I am so sorry for your loss. I am also sorry you are having so many side effects. I too feel your pain as I am going through the same thing right now.I had chemo today and feel an uneasy heaviness in my body and increased neuropathy. I don't feel like my chemo is working as my CA125 was up to 1700's today. I had back surgery last week so my DR feels this may be contributing to the rise in the marker. I just don't feel this treatment is working as I am not feeling my abdominal pain subsiding. I asked to see the DR and have an appt on Thursday as well. I will ask him about the neuropathy. In e past he suggested I take Alpha Lopic Acid. Which I do but not faithfully. I will ask him about the Gabeplatin that everyone says helps. I know it doesn't repair the nerves but may make them feel better and more tolerable. I am not sure if there are other side effects associated with this. I will share any new information I find out to help with the neuropathy. I hope you get some positive answers as well. Try to stay strong. I know it can be discouraging...especially around the Holidays! Sending you positive energy and strength! <3 Michele

So sorry to hear about your Mom. I'm hoping that maybe your ONC will give you a month off to let your body detox. ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))) Maria

I am so sorry things have been so bad for you. I continue to pray for strength and peace for you as well as help with chemo side effects. I sure hope better days are coming for you. I agree with Maria that maybe taking a month off chemo right now might be the best medicine. How many chemo treatments of carbo have you had this time? I was scheduled for 6 but he now wants me to go a few more. Pamper yourself Val and feel better soon. Hugs! Linda
