Hi everyone, I'm well over one year after my last chemo! Yahoooo!!!!! Not that I'm not dreading from everything and anything and raising question in my head almost every day, what if? But at least my energy is back :). Even my neuropathy has lessened a little...will see with that. Take care and let me know if you are interested :) Cheers Vlasta

Hi Star, I hope everything is going well for your Mum, I know exactly how difficult it must be for you...I was taking care for my late Dad and now I had to go through myself. But it said, everything is part of the life :(. I can tell you, I almost have given up all hopes that my energy will come back ever so I'm still in disbelief. I live in Melbourne, if you are not too far we can arrange a pamper party for your Mum and you of course, to get you off a little :). I know it's hard for you both and I so wish I could help...wish you all the best. Love, Vlasta

Vlasta I've only just registered today but I noticed your reference to Neuropathy. I get "relief" with Lyrica (not on pbs) and also Neuropathy Support Formula(internet) . I'm sorry but both are quite expensive. All the best Bob

Hi Bob, welcome to the site and I know how absurd it may sound, you feel welcome here to let your deepest thoughts out where nobody will judge you 🙂 Thank you for taking time to answer my concern, I was already on similar meds called Gabapentin from the same group as Lyrica but when I read all the side effects I stopped taking them. They didn't help much anyway. I don't know where you are but I was able to have them lot cheaper from the same hospital where I was having my therapies. Now I'm looking for natural ways and as I said since I'm taking the Oligo multi- supplements my pain have been easing a little too. Wish you best luck :) Vlasta
