Hi,
Both Taxol (paclitaxel) and Paraplatin (carboplatin) are known to cause neuropathy. However, these are the two most effective drugs against ovarian cancer. It is great that you are doing well as of now. I hope you continue to be in remission.
Neuropathy induced by chemotherapy is known to be slowly reversible. You may seek a neurologist's opinion on pain relief. Joint pain can not be attributed to past chemotherapy.
All the best, and God Bless!
