Intense nerve pain months after chemo
I had whipple for pancreatic cancer 17 months ago, followed by 6 months of gemcitabine and abraxane chemo. Last chemo was 9 months ago. Cancer marker rising now, but no cancer found on PET scan.
I just started having intense nerve pain everywhere.
Has anyone experienced this?

Lillijane, is the nerve pain focused on your hands and feet, as in peripheral neuropathy? Or is it different? How are you doing now?
