Managing Peripheral Neuropathy
by K. Simon Yeung, PharmD, LAc
Modern therapies offer many effective ways to combat cancer. However, they often cause difficult side effects such as nausea and vomiting and hair loss. Another common side effect that may be less often discussed is peripheral neuropathy. Many cancer survivors experience this condition not only during active treatment but also weeks or months following completion of therapy.

Circumlocution. It?s a fancy, technical word. It means talking about an idea in a round about way, or using more words than necessary to say what you mean in an indirect sort of way. I teach this concept each semester to my undergraduate Language Development class. However, I didn?t expect to experience it first hand.
