  1. This title isn't very accurate. Taxane induced neuropathy isn't limited to breast cancer. Many, many types of cancer are treated with Taxane drugs. I had 12 cycles of Taxol to treat my recurrent ovarian cancer and had neuropathy as a result. I also had 6 cycles of Doxorubicin, which causes similar hand and foot pain. I started Cannabis initially for "disease anxiety" and sleep. It drastically improved my aching feet! And then I started taking larger doses, and my "incurable" ovarian tumor shrank. On no other chemotherapy agents! the pre-clinical data is stunning. Compounds in Cannabis kill many types of cancer cells. After 2 debulking surgeries, 18 rounds of chemo and a year of Avastin immunotherapy it is my best hope. http://www.schedule1movie.com
