Hi everyone. Maxine here. Much to read here. Thanks.

Just half way through chemo. SE’s starting to really kick in. Having this week off treatment. Learning how to manage life feeling like a stuffed and pickled rabbit. Quite a challenge but learning fast. I have a good prognosis. Stage 1 but Grade 3 cells therefore need chemo.  Will look forward to reading everyone’s posts. Has anyone used iced packs on their fingers and toes when getting treatment to help reduce or prevent peripheral neuropathy?


  • I never had a problem with that but at chemo I have seen people put on the ice pack gloves.  I have found when I get to half way with chemo I know what will happen and when so the side effects are a bit easier to handle.  Fantastic news that you have a good prognosis!
