Questions about Chemo, Radiation and nerve damage

April 2, 2011 at 10:52 am

Congratulations on the negative findings.

As for questions, I do have some of my own. So, I’ll donate them to you.

1. From the Oncology perspective, which Chemo treatment choices are known to have immediate and, or, long term neurological consequences?

2. ditto for radiation.

3. When the Oncology Dr and the Neurologist consider treatment choices can they be combined in some way so that you get the benefit of both Chemo for cancer and the best dose of chemo as if you were only treating for CIDP?

4. If the selected radiation dose is very site specific, in other words- targeted and limited, then I would ask is the targeted beam near any of the nerves I have trouble with? If so can the beam be adjusted?

Good luck.
