    Hi, Mary. I ended chemo in September 2012, so about 15 months ago. I have some neuropathy, but don't know if it is more from chemo (when it started) or from Arimidex. Probably a combination of the two. Also, during chemo I started lots of dry coughing and burping which finally got a diagnosis a year later as GERD so I am now trying to heal my esophagus. While I'm not certain how much chemo contributed to that condition, the timing of symptoms is suspicious. I got it diagnosed by developing anemia, leading my onc to look for a source of internal bleeding. I am hoping that these are not permanent side effects, but are simply slow to resolve....
