Need hope: Neuropathy from chemo

Posted by needshope78 @needshope78, Apr 24, 2020

Is there anyone going through neuropathy from chemo . If so how long until my mother will be able to walk again afterwards. It’s been 8 weeks every week gets worse

Yes, stparker54, please let us know how the shoes help. I've had neuropathy from chemo for over a year now and it doesn't seem to be getting better. I do use Sketchers with wide heels that help my ankle not to turn over, but would love to find other shoes that help.

I had my first chemo treatment yesterday (7/20/20). After I finished it, I noticed that the mild neuropathy in my left foot, which I have had for years, was more pronounced. I got on the internet and found out there'd.s a company (OrthoFeet) that makes special shoes for people that suffer from foot problems, including neuropathy. I ordered a pair of their shoes. I'll let you know if they make a difference. The reviews for the shoes were very goo

stparker54, I want to add to a post in April where I suggested B1 and magnesium for neuropathy. . I recently found Benfotiamine while searching for my wife's macular degeneration. Since it's fat soluble thiamine in the body it lasts longer and remains at a higher level. Please check into it for your neuropathy.
