Connection between chemo and phantom limb pain



I am looking to see if there is any evidence/research related to phantom limb pain and chemo. My husband's pain increased significantly after his first round of chemo in June. I found one old published paper on this related to young patients with a conclusion that more research was needed.


Which chemo is he on at the moment? I don't remember having phantom pain with chemo. Although I rarely have phantom pain nowadays, I did notice it happening after my stump sweats significantly. Could there be a connection with fluid imbalance?


I was never given chemo 51 years ago, but the phantom limb pains have always been there.

TodayI take Gabapentin 10mg to relieve My phantom pains and it works for me.

Good Luck,
