The best answer...: Is maybe. The after-effects of chemo are hard to predict for every individual. There are natural (vitamin) supplements to treat this. Try them first before giving up.

Takes a while: It may take a while-several months to a few years to have the symptoms subsided. Be patient. You may want to try vit b1, b6, b12.
