Does anyone out there have problems with leg or foot problems. My dad has developed full blown foot-drop. He can't hold his feet up. He has to wear foot braces to keep his feet up so he can walk. He also has numbness in them. He is insulin dependent diabetic, but his sugars have been doing great since he has lost so much weight (40 pounds altogether). He also has little desire to eat, but he says that is getting better (his wife is a wonderful cook!!) He is seeing a neurologist for the foot-drop who seems to think it has nothing to do with the cancer, but I want to throw this out to you and see what yall think. Thanks. --- By the way, he sounds good on the phone. His outlook is much better. He goes for his first CAT scan after chemo/rad therapy on May 6th. We're holding our breaths!
