Ovarian Cancer Surgery Complications

I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometrioid ovarian cancer after total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, bilateral pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy, omentectomy.  I had one cycle of intraperitoneal chemotherapy which resulted in peritonitis and polymicrobial septicemia.  I received 6 weeks of IV antibiotics and removal of the port.  I finished the chemotherapy with IV taxol and carboplatin.  Sometime during all of this I started having deep leg pains and was recently diagnosed with polyradiculopathy.  I am scheduled for a spinal tap.  My question is could the leg problem be related to the surgery, cancer itself or the infection?
