Having side effect of oxaliplatin. Anyone had similar experience?
I underwent surgery for colon cancer as it was localised and after the lab testing of tissue, I was started on chemotherapy. I was very happy that I am cured off my disease and regularly receiving chemotherapy. But since last few weeks, I am having numbness and pain in my hands and feet which is causing me difficulty in my daily life. Doctor has told me it is peripheral neuropathy which is a side effect of oxaliplatin, and has stopped my chemotherapy for some time. Had anyone else had a similar experience?
