My Chemo Peripheral Neuropathy Story and How I Overcame…
In August of 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Towards the end of my five months of chemotherapy, I began to develop numbness in my lower body and a burning sensation in my hands. These became worse after my surgery in March of 2015 to the point I could not walk, dress myself or bathe without assistance. For two months, my life consisted of sleeping or sitting on the couch with my feet up and my hands completely still. Then, six weeks of radiation everyday began in May of 2015. I was miserable.
Eventually, thought a lot of determination, I was able to walk with the help of canes, but my hands continued to burn and I had no connection with my feet. I pushed through the pain and lack of balance in order to prepare simple meals, get dressed, and shower. Nothing was as it had been before cancer.
I could no longer play tennis (I am a club champion, several times over), getting down on the floor was nearly impossible, getting up couldn’t be done without assistance, driving was out of the question, and knitting was excruciating. My self work was diminishing and depression was beginning to set in.
I asked my oncologist what could be done about the neuropathy. There must be a plan, a method, a strategy, or protocol to follow that would help dissipate the numbness and fire, I thought. All I was told was “be patient, it may go away, but it might take up to two year, or it may never go away completely” and I would just have to adjust. Really? This was the best they had to offer other than drugs to calm the pain in my hands and help me sleep? I was distraught.
Then in January of 2016 Dr. Serpe entered my life. Finally, after almost a year of suffering in helplessness and pain, someone gave me hope. After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Serpe came up with a plan; a real strategy to eliminate my neuropathy and my need for drugs. His treatment involves my whole body; everything from diet to treating specific areas.
Currently, I am entering my sixth week of a sixteen week program. Th improvement has been remarkable. I am now able to drive, fully prepare the elaborate meals I am known for, take care of all my personal needs without help, play with my grandchildren, and knit. I am almost able to run again (watch out tennis challengers).
I have told everyone I know, including my oncologist, physical therapist, and every other medical professional I encounter about Dr. Serpe. I have a handful of his cards ready to hand out at all times.
No one should should suffer as I did. No one should be told “to be patient” or “there is a possibility the neuropathy will never go away.” Everyone should know about Dr. Serpe. He has already given me much of my regular life back. I am confident I will be fully restored once this program is finished.
In addition to being extremely educated and knowledgable, Dr. Serpe is kind, concerned, compassionate, and a joy to be around with his always present smile.
HOORAY for DR. SERPE!!!!!
