    Side Effects (Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)): After treatment develop peripheral neuropathy. Cried with pain in feet and numbness of toes and fingers...feeling like they were frozen. Began medication which I am still taking for the pain. Also still having fatigue.

      Congrats on your last chemo treatment!!! Happy belated birthday!! After battling cancer and its treatments-- every day is like a birthday and a reason to celebrate. My husband is an allogeneic stem cell transplant survivor and has been in remission 2 yrs this month. We are thankful to his donor and have skyped and emailed him but hope to finally meet him one day!

      I feel your pain on that one. I was miserable for a week and a half after my first round. On the up side, I'm down two dress sizes. What a way to lose it but at least there was a silver lining :-)
