Has anybody developed the side effect of neuropathy from 5FU? From what I know, it usually appears (when it appears at all) in the hands and/or feet but I have it in my knee. I had 3 surgeries on that knee way back in 1990 but I started to feel numbness there last week, my med onc said it could be neuropathy from the 5FU and didn't seem concerned about it but since then it's morphed from numbness to tingling to pain. Has anybody had neuropathy as a side effect from the chemo and if so, did it eventually go away? Thanks.
