    Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)

    Side Effects

    After front-line treatment was over and I was waiting to have stem cell, my feet begin to burn. I would feel like someone was sticking a pin in my feet and hands. With medication this is no longer a issue. Still tried.

    It is great having two birthdays a year. I thank God for allowing me to be special. I have had three birthdays since the transplant. I have a group of friends that we go out for each others birthday. They allow me to have two, how wonderful.
