      While there may be some decline in count during treatment, it doesn't kill it off. Lots of men go on to father children after having treatment. We wish you the best.

      I have experienced the same thing while on FOLFOX. For me, it seems to occur in the evening at dinner. After a few bites it seems to go away. It can be painful. I have also had some swallowing problems but nothing major yet. I was told by my doc that this was a fairly common side effect. Good luck.

      Blend your foods and drink with a straw.....Smoothies with Whey Protein Powder and ground up nuts and seeds.
      Soups AND Veggie Juices.
      Sorry about your problem....sounds lousy.

      I found it went along with the cold intolerance Really bad over the "bad" weekend but then got better until the next treatment. Hot soup is a good choice for those days
