My last chemo was three months ago. I am having trouble with neuropathy in my feet and it affects my knees also. Am very sensitive to medicine. Have tried most and it just is too strong for me. Do I have any hope that this will go away after a time or will it stay with me. Tell me of your experience with this. Thanks and God bless you all...

There are some supplements that help with neuropathy; vitamin B6 and Alpha Lipoic Acid.
I didn't have problems with neuropathy, but my knees were extremely painful after chemo. Once I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, autoimmune of the thyroid, and we started treating that condition with herbs, the pain went away immediately. There appears to be a link between ovarian cancer and autoimmune conditions. You may want to check out the book, "Autoimmune: The Cause and the Cure." There is a diet in the book that helps with autoimmune symptoms. I started that diet a year and a half after learning I have Hashimoto's and many of my other symptoms disappeared.

finished my chemo almost six months ago same things with me however legs and knees did get better arms and hands still a little problem. I do take vitamins and i see a chiropracter and now physical therapy which for me is AMAZING. I dont like taking medication either makes me feel worse so i try to find natural ways to feel better Good Luck
