Stiltz1 - My Dad is taking Oxaliplatin along with 5FU and Leucovorin(sp?) aka FOLFOX. He is Stage III with 4 nodes involved. His oncologist recommneded the more aggressive treatment. I believe the Oxaliplatin makes him very sensitive to hot and cold things. He can't drink or eat anyting too hot or cold. That also goes for touching things that are too hot or cold. Hope this helps.
