My hands and feet are shriveled like they have soaked in water for days. It is effecting the strength in my hands. Last chemo Oct 19th. Any suggestions for improving this issue?

    Have you discussed this with your doctor(s)? I know neuropathy is a possibility with some chemo. meds.

    That's a new one to me. You should be bringing this concern to your doctor. Chemo drugs are tough on us and can have a variety of side effects.... most of which reverse in the months following treatment. I would definitely get an appointment with your oncologist. Take care, Sharon

    Definitely see your doctor. I would also suggest hydrating with lots of water and Gatoraid
