  • hoping for full remission

    I will be going to the doctor on thursdayJuly 14th for a full body c/t scan and the results of my most recent blood test. I started with an AFP level of 44953--at my last Dr. visit I was down to 15.9. If my AFP level is below 6.1 and I pass my c/t scan then my Dr. will declare my cancer in full remission. My biggest problem since my RPLND-KIdney removal etc.(2 1/2 month hopital stay) is the neurothaphy in my toes, feet, thighs and fingers. most of the time it is just aggrivating and slightly painful but sometimes the pain is almost intolerable. Can anyone give me some info and possible pain remedies that they have found or been prescribed by their doctor. Any info will be greatly appreciated as always.
