    Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)

    Side Effects

    Sensitive to cold. Definitely strong painful reaction to cold during the 5 days after receiving Oxaliplatin. Sporadically the rest of the time feeling tingling to cold, but not where I drop what I am holding. I can get to putting the item down.
