    Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)

    Side Effects

    The chemo & radiation before the surgery was tough but bearable. Now after having three rounds of post-operative chemo, I have lost bowel & bladder control shortly after treatment, then as the 10 days go by, I become stronger, and feel good again & regain bladder & bowel control.. I have slept for 18 hrs. straight for two days both after treatment 2 & treatment 3. Husband had to check if I was breathing. Feel like this is killing me, sapping my strength, and making me very very sick.
