Sanexas Therapy For Neuropathy
Hi everyone! Has anyone tried Sanexas therapy for Neuropathy. I looked it up and it sounds interesting and insuranance may cover it. Has anyone tried this, if so has it helped with your neuropathy?
Here is a link to some information about the therapy.

hello Candlewood, I don't believe I have seen anyone post on this treatment for neuropathy, and since it looks like it can't hurt and if insurance covers it, we look forward to hearing more!0
Sanexas Therapy For Neuropathy
I have what I would term moderate Neuropathy in both my feet and after reading about this decided to give it a try. I did try acupuncture and had very minor if any results from that.
I found someone in my area that offers this and my insurance does cover it although I have a $40 co-pay each time so the cost is not insignificant but I would do almost anything for some improvement in my neuropathy. The recommended course of treatment is 24 sessions 3x a week for 8 weeks. The office that is closest to me is only open 2x a week so I'm doing 2x a week for 12 weeks. I have had 4 sessions so far and I do feel like there has been some improvement already especially with how my feet feel in bed. There is a check-in with the doctor every 8 sessions.
Part of the treatment is vitamin B12 injections. I knew this going in but I didn't realize until the first session that they actually inject this in between each toe each time. Parts of my feet are hypersensitive so as you can imagine it's not the most pleasant experience getting 4 injections in each foot. I also bruise easily so they have had to skip some toes but I always get the full amount just usually 3 injections in each foot.
BTW...I just passed my 7 year anniversary of finding out that I had UPSC. My wake-up call was 4-11-14 (56 at the time), surgery 5-19-14 and my last chemo was 10-30-14. I will officially celebrate my 7 year anniversary on Halloween this year! I'm stage 3a with microscopic cells in both ovaries and a positive wash. No node involvement and my tumor was tiny, about the size of a pencil eraser and in the upper part of my uterus.
I don't post often but I do read what everyone is up to. I was really shaken by Abbycat2's passing as we were both diagnosed around the same time in 2014 with UPSC 3A. I feel very fortunate and I wanted to let everyone know that I am still doing well. I will update this post as I go further along in trying the Sanexas Therapy.

Great to hear from you Debi. Congrats on 7 years!!! I hope you continue to find relief as you proceed with your treatments.
Love and Hugs,
Thanks for posting about your experience so far with the Sanexas therapy. I wasn't familiar with this therapy until Candlewood's initial post.
While my neuropathy is very mild, I know many women here really suffer from this chemo side effect. We'll be looking forward to hearing about how the treatment works for you. (Although I'm a little creeped out by the thought of the toe injections – lol!)
And thanks too, for letting us know that you're still NED all these years after treatment! Such good news that we can all celebrate with you.0
I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but I'm considering scrambler therapy for the neuropathy in my feet. I continue to have good results from weekly acupuncture -- down to once a week from twice a week -- but it would be lovely to have my feet feel completely normal. At my last check up, my gyn/onc mentioned that a couple of his patients have had really good results with scrambler therapy. My PT told me separately a couple of months ago that one of her patients who had been almost immobilized by neuropathy pain in her feet underwent sctambler therapy and had fantastic results. It's very expensive locally and not likely to be covered by my insurance because although it is FDA approved, my insurance seems not to cover anything slightly out of the ordinary. Here's a journal artcile on scrambler therapy -- https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6482660/ -- here's a rave review from Hopkins --https://www.spineuniverse.com/blogs/cooney/johns-hopkins-pain-management-specialist-recommends-calmare-therapy-rsd-pain -- and here's the website of the local clinic I'm considering using http://www.sperotherapyillinois.com/index.html.
A year ago my neuropathy was so bad that I would absolutely have taken a chance on an expensive treatment, but fortunately it is much diminished from acupiuncture. Good luck with your treatments DebR. I think you're very brave to deal with those injections!
