Angie Daughter of Bill Posted May 20, 2004 Share Posted May 20, 2004 Hi gang! I haven't posted much about my Dad lately. He's been doing great with the chemo and had shrinkage after the first two rounds of carbo/taxol. Well, we had a CT scan and a bone scan on Tuesday. We will get the results Tuesday of next week. I am worrying because my Dad has some new aches and pains. He is having pain in his back. Not severe, but it is just there. Yesterday he told me that his legs felt sooooooo weak. He said that he felt like he had run 100 miles. He said that they just feel like jello. He can walk from the house to his truck outside...........any farther than that, he says it feels like his legs are just going to collapse. I asked him if he had any numbness...........he has numbness in his toes on both feet. Would these symptoms be considered neuropathy? If it is indeed, would we have to stop his chemo treatments? (I will call the dr. with these questions, of course, just wanted to hear from those of you who have experienced this.) I hope that we don't have to stop his chemo......it has been WORKING!! I just absolutely hate scan time. I have been handling things pretty well, then BOOM, get a scan or two and I fall apart. Please say a prayer for my Dad that all is stable and that we can continue chemo!! Love and prayers to you all!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
