Re: Neuropathy...

Hi mini mad


Thanks for posting.


We’re not sure from your post what treatment you are having.


Peripheral neuropathy can be a side effect of chemotherapy but this does not tend to affect the eye area. As this has developed it is important to let you treatment team know as soon as you can. There could be a number of reasons for it and your doctors can fully assess you, arranging any tests if necessary.


Do get back in touch if we can help further. We often find we can help people more by speaking to them on the phone. Your call will be confidential and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.

The number is 0808 800 6000 (Text relay prefix 18001).


Our usual opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm and 9am to 1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.


Please be aware that we will be closed on Monday 26 August due to the bank holiday.


Thank you for contacting us. Please contact us again in the future if you have any further queries.


Kind regards
