The Journey

Some cancer treatments cause peripheral neuropathy, a condition that can affect how you move or feel pain and temperatures, or how your body functions (blood pressure, heart rate, digestion or urination). Symptoms vary, depending on whether the nerves damaged are motor, sensory or autonomic. Ask your provider: • What symptoms could I experience and when should I call you? • What medicine and treatments could help me to feel better? • What precautions should I take to stay safe?
