Re: 5 year's out from stage 3 Her2 pos 35 pos nodes

Hi Joan,

There are threads discussing 'neuropathy'. You can used the 'Search' button to find them. My personal experience - mostly from the rehabilitation after my 23-hour brain surgery and 40-day hospitalization - is that 'exercise does wonders!' The nerve impulse of our neurons actually is conducted by tiny electricity 'jumping' over to connect each cell. The first several years I actually could 'feel' daily improvement - constantly telling my husband that 'I feel I'm smarter than yesterday!'

Try walking 30 minutes a day. I am confident you will 'feel' the improvement. [I was also paralyzed on my left side after the brain surgery in 1990. After 40 days rigorous rehab in the hospital, I walked out of the hospital with a cane. After another three weeks 'drilling' by my Oldest Brother, I was able to walk on my own. My gaity wasn't very good at the beginning. But after a year, I was able to dribble the basketball and shoot some hoops! ]

Eat a balanced meal as the tissue repairment requires lots and lots of good nutrients: protein, minerals, vitamins... etc.

It will get better. I'm sending you good vibes.
