  Still the same way. It also seems to effect the calf muscles and ankles. Not in a painful way though, just a weak way. The pain is still on the pads and heels of the feet. I bought a foot massage, water bath massage, some sub lingual vitamins, and inserts for my shoes. Some temporary but very little relief all in all.

  I'm going to call Ruth tomorrow and see if there is anything that Panella can call in. I should rephrase that. I will call to see if he will call something in to help with this. I go to see him Friday and maybe this can be 1 think off the topic list. Then again I guess what happens Thursday at Rathfoot's office may alter things. Hopefully not.

I found this which explains a lot:

"Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the system that transmits information between the central nervous system (e.g. the brain and spinal cord) and the rest of the body, caused by some chemotherapy agents."

I took a whole Endocet this morning and it wards off some of the pain, but should I continue using my feet I don't think it would have a great effect.

  Come Friday, me and Panella are going to have a chat. This has gotten to the point that I can't hardly walk and most doctors address it rather than ignore it. True, a small price to pay for a little while for life but if it can be lessened then it should be to enhance the quality of life.

  A lot of my other issues were addressed by a friend that reads the board, Kim. Thank you so much. Sometimes knowing what is coming helps to understand it and that helps one to prepare. If you ever open a practice of your own I will be honored and blessed to be your first patient. You are a Godsend.
