Navelbine causing intestinal neuropathy?


Question from Joette: I go in for my third Navelbine treatment on Thursday. My stomach pain has gotten out of control. What is intestinal neuropathy? I think it is what I am experiencing...it is misery.
Answers - Larry Norton, M.D. I can't diagnose you on the basis of your question. There are many causes of abdominal pain, and these should be investigated before the medicine is discontinued if it is working. In particular, your physician would probably ask a gastroenterologist to make sure you don't have ulcer pain.

On Wednesday, October 17, 2007 our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer. Larry Norton, M.D. and moderator Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about managing day-to-day life with metastatic breast cancer.
