Numbness has spread from the feet up as far as above the knees. This has happened on both legs. The Vincristine was administered in June 2010 but do not know how long for.
The literature says most side effects disappear after drug is stopped, withint 6 weeks, however there can be a prolonged time period. Vincristine is the hardest on the patient of all the chemo agents. My grandaughter had it at 13, and the only side effect she had was hair loss, my partner had it, and he had the numbness but it went away when it was stopped.
