Article Talk: Peripheral Neuropathy Is More Than a Cancer Side Effect
October 31, 2016
I also had colo-rectal cancer and experienced the neuropathy you are discussing. It has been almost 2 years since I've had a chemo treatment. The neuropathy in my hands has disappeared but the neuropathy in my feet has not. I will say, however, that it has lessened. Has anyone had weird feelings in their legs when they lay down, like heightened sensitivity, not pain just a little tingly? It seems like when I get in bed and cover up the covers make my legs tingle a little.

More Than Chemo Brain: Several Factors Contribute to Cognitive Decline After Cancer
January 25, 2016
I had rectal cancer with three years of treatments and radiation. It will be a year February 25th since my last radiation treatment. I still have chemo brain and wonder if it will go away or if I will have problems forever with memory loss. It's really scary to all of a sudden not remember what you're going to say or what you got up to do. When I first mentioned it to my oncology nurse she said oh it's chemo brain.

I noticed right away that my mind couldn't seem to remember things that used to be so easy for me. I used to be a walking phone book, if someone needed a phone number they always said ask Lisa. I'm lucky now if I can remember my own. My chemo nursed asked me a question one time and I said I don't remember, in fact I don't remember a lot of things lately. She immediately said you have chemo brain. I was relieved, but my question is does it ever go away?

Scoping Out Colon Cancer
August 12, 2015
I am a prime example of ignoring symptoms. I had rectal bleeding for a year and a half before going for the actual colonoscopy. I had one scheduled about six months in and canceled. What brought me around was the Red Cross. They called for me to give blood, which I used to do regularly. I went and they did the iron test only to find out I didn't register on their machine which goes down to 10.5. I started getting tired with no energy to do anything so I went to the doctor (two months later). I scheduled the colonoscopy with the nurse saying she had no idea how I was even still walking, my iron level ...
