Colleen describes if she has peripheral neuropathy as a side effect from ovarian cancer.
Oh, yes, and mainly I believe that’s due to the Taxol and I still have it today, and it gets worse and worse with each dose. And it’s the burning and the tingling and the numbness sensation that develops in the feet and in the hands, and it's due to the break down of the tissues from the chemotherapy. It can be dealt with. You just have to, you recognize you can’t be on your feet. And my feet are now to a point where they hurt, and I have to be really careful about standing too long or doing things. I just get really tired, and my feet start to really ache and burn. Not much you can really do about it at this point.
