It is called peripheral neuropathy. Yes it can sometimes get better but may take many years

Hi Bose

like your father I have nerve damage which started after the 6th infusion and found it very difficult to walk. It has now been a year and it still affects me and is not pleasant but I can see an improvement albeit slow. I don't think there is a cure for his, only time to allow the nerves to repair themselves.

Investigate the treatment of peripheral neuropathy with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. If you need more info about centres please ask, you can get treatment for free depending on circumstances.

Thanks Chris
