Reduced dosage

I'm curious,  I'm approaching the next round of chemo. I've had some neuropathy issues. The drugs are Epirubican, oxaliplatin, and 5fu. The last round almost immediately I had problem with my leg muscles and my hands not responding. Kind of like a Charlie horse where the muscles locked up making it hard to walk.


The oncologist is considering changing drugs again. Has anyone else had a similar response?could a reduced dosage work?  I've had success with the lymph nodes shrinking with this combination of drugs but obviously I don't want to jeopardize my nervous system

From experience I would say yes - due to severe side effects the strength was reduced to 25%of the normal doesage - five months out no further spread.
