Rads...working on that

Went for simulation today and will start next Tuesday.  Not worried about rads; last time I used plenty of aquaphor and didn't burn.  It will work for me this time.

Stupid neuropathy.  I am taking neurontin and vit B-6 (200 mg).  Hasn't improved a bit. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your support

I can offer no encoruagement about the neuropathy.  I have heard that it is very unpredictable.  I was fortunate to just have it in two of my toes on one foot.  I had my surgery in February 2012; I finished chemo (ACT) in July 2012; I finished rads the end of September 2013.  I still have the numbness in my toes., but that is such a small thing compared to what others have. 

I hope someone here better matches you than I and can give you some pointers.

Best wishes.

I don't have neuopathy Cindy and I am sorry that what you are doing now isn't helping.  Wish I could help you with some suggestions.

Good luck with rads and keep us updated on how you do.
