Hi. I've had various chemos including Taxol (paclitaxel) which had no effect on my bc (liver+bone mets) but gave me peripheral neuropathy, bad enough that I needed a button-hook to do them up! Also EC and capecitabine, not too much trouble with neuropathy from those treatments. I had 7 cycles of eribulin in summer 2013, this did cause more neuropathy, I'm now on capecitabine again but I still have some neuropathy in fingers/feet. I think the problem gets worse if we have several chemo regimes. Not needing to use button-hook at the moment 🙂
I suffered badly from peripheral neuropathy during Taxol, and now I'm on Eribulin it's got even worse, I can just about walk. My oncologist says Eribulin has a much less effect on the nerves than taxol and any neuropathy will be from the taxol, but it is definately worse!! Has anyone else expereiced neuropthy while on Eribulin?
