After my last treatment of chemo I ended up getting chemo induced neuropathy. After a while it went away. Now I think it is back again. Is this normal? My last treatment was on August 11th. Also, can it be just in part of you foot/feet? Mine are just in a few of my toes. Thanks

Mine didn't come and go but it gets worse in cold. Have you been having cooler weather by any chance?

stoker - Yes, one toe, many, feet, up your legs, fingers, hands..... I went to a neurologist several times. She said it's possible it would get better over a couple of years. Qualifying that better means 'better' than the worst it was, but never back to where you were before the damage. I'm 7 years out. My fingers got enough feeling back to manage most things. My feet are totally dead - blocks of ice. Sometimes it creeps up my calves. The worst part is I have no balance to stand on one foot.

Many people have intense pain. I'm grateful that I do not. There are prescriptions for pain, but no other proven treatments. Some people try acupuncture but I've never heard a real success story.

I recommend the following thread. Lots of tips & ideas - heartbreak & hope.

Mine was really only on the bottoms of my feet, and definitely came and went. It was pretty much gone by about a year PFC.
