I completed chemotherapy 29/05/20 (EC followed by paclitaxol). I finished radiotherapy x20, 27/07/20. During my weekly paclitaxol treatments I noted & reported a feeling of ‘cold’ in my toes, although warm to the touch. Since I completed chemotherapy I have had an increasing feeling of cold in my toes, feet & lower legs, also tingling & some pins & needles. In the mornings, especially, I have stiffness in my leg joints & find it difficult to get up & walk. Also experienced when getting up from a seated position at anytime. Yesterday, 08/09/20, I also started to notice intermittent pins & needles especially in my left hand. I have told my oncologist about this, he said that the tablets I am due to start, Letrazole, can also cause these side effects & so they may worsen. Is there anything I can do to improve/eradicate these effects?
