Hi,
Sorry for not answering your post earlier,but I was waiting for someone who has experienced your same symptoms.
I really don't know much about Chemotherapy side effects,but what I can tell you is that Taxol can cause Peripheral neuropathy (numbness and tingling of the hands and feet)
Taxol side effects are almost always reversible and will go away after treatment is completed.
Please paste the link below so you can have more info about your condition and how your Oncologist can advise and help you lessen the Taxol side effects.
