I have neuropathy in some of my fingers and feet since chemotherapy in the Fall of 2018. After 1 1/2 years the nurse in the breast center at Mayo suggested acupuncture. It has really helped especially if I can get a treatment every other week. Wondered why it as not recommend earlier.
At my 2 year follow-up I asked for my B12 levels to be checked. They were about as low as they could be. Probably one reason why I was always so fatigued and thus had no energy nor desire to do anything. Happy to report that after taking 500 mg of B12 for about a month now I am feeling more like myself. In following up to your post why aren’t tests for these vitamins (and others) routine for cancer patients? I will be asking for my B1 level to be checked at my next follow-up. Thank you so much for the heads up! We indeed need to be the advocates for our own health.
