Recovery from chemotherapy (week 12)

Just a very brief catch-up on the chemotherapy side of things again:

As with a month ago, my peripheral neuropathy continues to cause me lots of problems. My fingers, feet and toes continue to all feel numb and uncomfortable. I’ve not noticed any change over the last month, but I’m hoping that it will eventually start to improve at some point, though there is information on the internet that implies that the nerve damage may be permanent, which would be … frustrating.

I continue to feel the cold very badly, and struggle to feel comfortably warm, despite having increased the thermostat settings in the house. I wondered if this might be related to my weight loss, and not having so much “built-in” insulation now, but layering on more clothes doesn’t seem to help, so I suspect it’s more likely to be something associated with my peripheral neuropathy again. It’s annoying, but it’s not the end of the world, and hopefully it will improve when (or if) my peripheral neuropathy improves.

Apart from that, I’m pretty much over the chemotherapy side-effects now. I still have some taste “changes”, where things I used to like are no longer as palatable, and vise-versa, but that’s hardly worth mentioning.

So I guess I’ll just have to see how things progress over the next few months.
