Yesterday was the start of my 8th month of weekly Taxol. I too am older (old, really). I do have some neuropathy but for me it is quite manageable; some tingling in my fingers and some numbness in my feet. My MO suggested I take Alpha Lipoic Acid and Gabapentin to help with the symptoms. I sometimes have fleeting strange sensations in the days right after infusion but nothing that I would characterize as strong tingling. The Weekly Taxol for Stage 4 has a lot of very good info. I'm sure the ladies there would have a lot of good suggestions for you. Please do not lose hope.
I have not posted on this or the Weekly Taxol thread before today. I have read all of the posts on both threads and am so very impressed with the courage, knowledge and compassion you all have shared. My heart goes out to those ofyou who are so young.
