My mother has colon cancer which has progressed to liver and recently has generalized. The doctor nearly forced her to try this drug Oxiplatin as a last option and the side effects have just been so horrible. First she had the normal effects, numbness to cold, fatigue, etc but this is her third treatment, and she is not only urinating a huge amount of blood but yesturday she became completely blind. This is the first time I have ever written to a support group, I guess this has just become so overwhelming and I need some advice, have these side effects happened to anyone else? She has never had vision problems before so we are not sure what is going on?
