I just returned from visiting my favorite cousin, who has recently had a
series of five Taxol + carboplatin infusions for lung cancer. He's got pretty
severe peripheral neuropathy in his hands and feet, and hasn't gotten much of
an indication from his oncologist (one of the paternalistic,
non-communicative ones, I'm afraid) re what to expect. Anyone have any
experiences to share about these drugs, and whether and when the sensation
returns to the extremities after being treated with them?
Thanks, as always. I'll be thinking of all of you this Thanksgiving.
