Thought I was getting through rounds 1-3 way too easy. Just fatigue for a day or two and slightly fuzzy brain. Finished round four last week and am still fatigued, fuzzy, and now have the dreaded neuropathy in my feet. The fatigue comes and goes. Is this normal for IP treatments? Usually it was just a day or two after the treatment. Not a week later! Does the neuropathy ever go away and is there any treatment for it. (besides sticking my hands and feet in ice.) Do they put appetite enhancers in the chemo??? All want to do is eat! I guess that is a good thing but I am gaining weight not losing it. I was really psyched up to go all 6 rounds to get the biggest bang for the buck but now I am not so sure. It is a fine line between that and doing irreparable damage to my body. Any other IP experiences to share? What was your age when you had IP? I know they focus on younger woman and maybe I was a older, but healthy, outlier on the curve.
