Eloxatin (Oxaliplatin) Chemotherapy Chemotherapies

What Eloxatin (Oxaliplatin) Chemotherapy Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

2 rounds (5 day hopsitalization each cisplatin and 5FU) mouth sores, some hair loss, changes in taste and smell, weight loss 6 rounds Hepatic artery infusion (oxaliplatin)avastin 3 month Jakafi (oral) unknown trial drug nano cisplatin and gemcitabine
Began with Xeloda in pill form that was simultaneous with my Radiation. 6 weeks Mon-Fri. Didn't have any problems with this drug whatsoever. March 2014 began Oxaliplatin and 5FU for the next 6 months. I where a pump for 48 hours of continuous infusion every other week. I was told to be cautious of cold weather and cold drinks or any other type of cold items. So drinking everything at room temp is pretty boring but I did find out what happens if you do try to tempt fate and drink a cold substance----it felt like I was swallowing shards of glass down the back of my throat. YIKES. So far, I have only noticed a bit of nausea during the week of treatment and fatigue, but I know it is early and these symptoms will undoubtedly worsen as time goes on. Not looking forward to this. Really have dreaded the whole chemo thing.
I had 2 chemotherapy drugs. Eloxatin (oxaliplatin) which was given through my port at my Oncologist's office. I also took Xeloda which is a chemotherapy drug (pills) taken at home. I also had a wonderful Oncologist who worked well with my surgeon.
5-fu orally before surgery 11/12 - 12/12. The oral chemo did a number on my stomach lining. After surgery did 8 FOLFOX treatments 3/13 - 7/13, side effects were sensitivity to cold, some nausea but not bad, and tired.
June 2013 - December 2013
I was completely fine up until chemo #5. All of them are 52 hours, I go home with the pump. Chemo# 5 put me down. Fatigue, mouth sores, numbness in toes, extreme sensitivity to cold, loss of appetite.
R CHOP every 3 weeks from 12/30/2013 through 4/28/2014. Began R GEMOX on 6/19/2014 every 3 weeks through 10/21/2014. Started Rituximab and Treanda on 12/3/2014 as a 2 day course. Severe neuropathy in feet and less but still suffered neuropathy in fingers during R CHOP. R GEMOX caused great discomfort with cold even before therapy was complete. One does of Rituximab and Treanda and my father has terrible oral sores. However, he has been fortunate to never have suffered any severe intestinal discomfort.
folofox: 3/14-9/14, starting again 1/15
Jan 22, 2015 R Chop was the first. Mostly tired some nauseous spells
Rituxan and treanda. Had mixed results. Then R-CHOP, which seemed to increase the cancer. Then R-ICE which then sent me to get an auto transplant. Had a severe reaction to rituxan the first time, then minor reactions every other time. They had to infuse really slow. Added an extra day to my chemos. No other big side effects from the actual chemo except fatigue. Hair loss after the final ICE but was high dose. Also, threw up after the ICE except after the high dose.
