My mom's stage IV nsclc mets were being kept at bay with chemo until Oct. when there was progression in lung, adrenal, and lymph tumors. She stopped treatment and started hospice right before Christmas, still feeling good. It has been 9 months since WBR for brain mets.
She has started to have what she describes not as pain, but tingling in both legs from knees to ankles, especially when lying down. We will of course discuss this with the hospice nurse on her next weekly visit. Until then, is this commonly found in cancer or perhaps totally unrelated? I have heard of neuropathy, but don't really know much about it. Since she does not receive treatment or scans anymore, I wouldn't want to call hospice unnecessarily if it should be fine to wait for their next visit.
Thanks for your time,
