HI all: I have finished 14 treatments of folfirnox (oxaliplatin + irenotecan + 5FU) did last one in May (and then 3 months in hospital). I didn't have neuropathy, cold intolerance, or joint pain while in treatment but have recently developed the neuropathy and severe arthritis-like joint pain. I get very stiff and sore after just 20 minutes of inactivity. Anyone else end up with this? If so, how long does it last and what do you take for it?
