Hi there. Certain techniques are recommended by physicians to prevent or lessen severity of chemotherapy side effects like chemotherapy.  You need to report any unusual feeling to your health care professional, protect areas with decreased sensation  by not walking barefooted, wearing thick socks and soft soled shoes, avoid extreme temperature changes, protect hands and feet from extreme cold, use gloves when washing etc. simple comfort measures can be used like massage, flexible splints etc. measures to relieve constipation due to neuropathy are eat fiber rich fruits, drink 2-3 litres of fluids, exercise if tolerable, deep breathing, relaxation and guided imagery help in pain associated with neuropathy. Your chemotherapy may need to be interrupted or dose modified if symptoms are distressing. Consult a neurologist for appropriate guidance. Take care.
