This is a forum where you never apoligise unless you have hurt someone here. 

We are all on the same road. In different vehicles for sure, but you can bet, you will find someone here who is in the same vehicle. 

I cannot answer your post right now, as I am running in and out. I just wanted to say hello, and wish you well and let you know there are no sorries here.

I'll catch up with you later.

Thank you for letting me vent...I already feel better. Yesterday in Michigan we had 14 inches of snow. YES! snow is magical, but I waited to refill my meds and had to drive in it.  I'm just having one of those days where you feel sorry for yourself. TOMORROW is a new day:)!

I was td my neurologist that Gabbi is only if there is pain. After several months it will not go into reversal and most likely will stay the same.,I also was told that narcotic meds do not always to a good job in controlling neuro pain. In many cases if there is a neuro pain toward the end of a cancer journey they have a very hard time to control it.

You are in the right place to get answers and seek other's experiences.  I've got permanent neuropathy but not as bad as you and I'm on Gabapentine for the last 10 years.  The cold weather is worse for me but I'm not having to get in the bath and do the things you are.  You should ask your doctor if there is anything another perscription might help better.  Don't settle with not living life - there should be other remedies out there.  At least you took some joy in working in your garden this year.  Hoping you get some relief.

How good A sensory signals that your feet send to your brain? Did they test for it?
