Alex - that is great! Only 2 treatments to go, you can do it. I just finished #12 last week. The neuropathy is a pain, especially the fingers. Merry Christmas!

I have one tx of oxalaplatin left, and my neuropathy has not been bad except for my feet, which are tingly/numb 24/7 now.  The hands are not bad except for cold and that only lasts a week or so after a treatment.  My local onc offered to take me off oxy last treatment, but I said no, as I want to take all 12 and be as aggressive with this cancer as possible.  I might even consider taking more oxy if the oncs agree, as I can take the numb feet, and I feel almost obligated to take it as long as it is working.  I guess I can always come back to it later if needed....

Congrats on your scan results.  I just thought I would let you know that my mom has started reflexology for her neurapothy. Reflexology is different from massage. It is deep tissue.  It has really made her feel better.
