Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
It is very sad to know that you had seven cancers.

Now your problem is neuropathy pain.

There are many options available for neuropathy pain. You have tried many drugs. So it is very difficult to treat.

I am giving few options. You can try any of them.

Amitrytiline is routinely used drug in neuropathy.

Others are transdermal patch like fentanyle or butrans patch.

some lastest methods like percutaneous electric nerve stimulation can be tried to get pain relief.

Other alternative like acupuncture or massage therapy can be tried simultaneously.

Theses all druds are prescription based medicine so consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly. If you have any queries then feel free to ask me.
