Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Lymphoma, Colorectal Cancer. Posted on November 9, 2011 View this journey (6 Experiences)

I had the protocol of folfox and the 5fu infusion to take home for 48hours. During the hurricane in New England, I was forced to go to the hospital because the drug was not available to the infusion companies due to shortage...side effects were minimal compare to others, but most prominent was the cold sensitivity and neuropathy...brutal the first week especially in jaw and then not so much. By the end of the 8 cycles, it was constant. Mostly in hands and feet by then. I'm almost 3 weeks out from last treatment before radiation & Chemo pill and still have neuropathy. Some say it never goes away completely.
