    I'm so sorry that you are facing this. I am a Stage IV rectal cancer survivor and know all about Oxaliplatin.Some patients have worst neuropathy than others. Please ask questions and we'll try to help. Best wishes for treatment success.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Part of his chemo treatment during this year was the drug oxaliplatin. He experienced peripheral neuropathy, mostly in his toes which continues even after developing an allergy to oxaliplatin and stopping the drug.

      According to our Dr, 100 percent of people receiving Oxi will develop neuropathy. That's why my husband had to switch to the next set of chemo cocktails. It has gotten better in the 9 months he has been off, but still there

    Procedure or Surgery (Ileostomy ): After initial diagnosis in 2013, my husband had his rectal tumor removed along with about a foot of bowel. He had an ileostomy for a year, to allow his newly reconstructed rectum to heal.
