It's something that builds up. It does go away between treatments. BUT it builds up. When it doesn't go away between treatments, they will stop the oxaliplatin. That may be 5 treatments, or 10. Or never. The best thing to do is keep warm socks and gloves around. And a scarf if necessary.
Room temp drinks are best. Or warm drinks.
There are some docs that will prescribe the drug for diabetic neuropathy. I never took it, and can't remember the name of it.
PLEASE don't put the cart before the horse, tho. Discuss your concerns with his onc. But maybe he will be one of the lucky ones that doesn't get it. Or at least doesn't get it badly.
I hope this helps.
