      thanks for your contribution . CIPN is when a Conductive molecule ION inhibits the conduction or sets up a constant flood of pain signals to the brain From the bodies extremities feet toes hands head and Brain Including the XXX in males. Erectile dysfunction can be severe. typically the chemo that contains metallic molecule ie Oxaliplatin PLATINUM is the conductive molecule that sits between nerve r ends in the chain. CIPN can last for years after therapy is concluded. I am in my 3rd year of agony. And not until 3 months ago did I have any relief.
      Also I can now ,feel it may be reducing in intensity. basically I can say CIPN untreated is extremely painful with few long term treatments. I do hope I have contributed to pain free times .

      Even hand and foot exercises during treatment help reduce the risk of long term damage. I'm so glad that you've gotten relief.

      Thank you I was in a fog for so long before I came out and began to fight back. You have my Pharmaceutical advice KEEP it close tell your GP and I hope you avoid the problem. May God Bless you He must have for me . Perhaps he is fed up with the struggle were having and has helped those in research. I spent much of my life in R&D its so much tedium proving the spark you saw in ONE test then it dies before igniting the kindling. Your life will be on a express train for the next 3 months. its exhausting and you wonder when you can rest. you wil get tired you Wont loose hair but you may want to pull some out.

      Sleep when you can Eat WELL ABOVE all Else. Healthy and IRON RICH FOODS.

    BAD side is CIPN
    Chemo INDUCED PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY, Its nasty lasts for years am now in my 3rd year If What was seemingly untreatable. to date, no one has come up with the Magic pill. My Dr. Listens to me and we have teamed up and tried the so called remedies known So far I am on trial # 15. We have landed on the Best choice So far. its defended by research form Mayo Clinic. Cancer Free result>> was long but PLEASE |P|L:|EA|S|E stay POSITIVE. your Positive I WILL WIN is the most Powerful ,treatment for the Cancer. If your Oncologist ,stops Chemo, It probably will be for this reason. I do not know How much Chemo it will require tom Kill your Cancer however keep positive. Cancer Breeds on negativity

    Hi I find being welcomed to YOUR CANCER web site is wrong it is correct for me to Thank you for joining the group and sharing the pains your about to share . it adds to our knowledge and Peace of mind for you and others . I was stage LATE 3 with minor Lymph gland spread . I Am now Clear of Cancer not cured Cancer can find a new place to attack Its NEW not the old but the doc's dont say Cured. CR cancer is fully treatable and quickly. from day 1 of the Mapping of the tumor to the last CT its going to be a minimum of a year. PAIN ? I had none however I am and have been on a pain control ,regime for 40 years form Neurological damage pain . so I truthfully cannot comment on Pain. Discomfort yes some the mapping is NOT pleasant but NOT PAINFUL SO approach each part of treatment without fear. Some is highly successful and advances are coming forward fast we are winning against this killer not stabbing in the dark . LIVE well EAT BETTER And keep positive you can and will win.

    I remember being told I had 7 Fractured Vertebra in my neck I said that's all of them will how about Artificial disk's here and here Lets get going not one shock or down feelings . I was on the verge of total paralysis. When my GP said I have cancer . He told me a year later. When I saw him to say I was clear. in all the years and injuries you have had you were always positive and unafraid When I told you that you DIED inside you went Whitter than a sheet. And stood up and silently left the office. I was DEVASTTATED for once I knew I was unable to understand FEEL or do some simple exercise to get over . I may DIE or I may Survive But I have survived , 15 Fractured vertebra and 19 damaged disks, all with full understanding . I had to live with this ALONE and be my ONE man band to get out and exercise bother to cook. Bother to live. Dont fall into that trap ITS easy to fall. Harder to stand and move . MOVE ! be positive live positive .. I think I did enough , I must have the hormones of the Power of positive living does help the process win . its yours to win. ,We all prey for you to win.
    CR Cancer is unfortunately LOADED with the Causes of Anemia Be aware of this and at the first signs tell your doctor Anemia is treatable. COLD hands and feet. PALE hands and feet . These can also be mistaken for CIPN. ADD LIVER HEART and kidney to your diet Loaned with Iron will help prevent Anemia. Its a small trade off to rid the Cancer . My Only down side
