Comment from: Howie, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: November 18

My side effects from cancer treatment were typical, numbness in my toes and fingers, and balance not good. All these side effects got better as time went by. Whatever side effects you have after 2 years you will probably keep forever, I did. Hair came back within 6 months, but it was curly and frizzy, not normal for me. This lasted for about a year, changing for the better day by day. All my weight (50 lb.) is back on and I feel great.


Cancer is the result of the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells anywhere in the body. See Answer
