Steve should be starting Folfirinox this week. It will be the first time he has had Oxilaplatin. I realize there has been a ton of discussion regarding the neuropathy that is caused by the oxy. Unfortunately, I haven't payed much attention as it has never been an issue. I am wondering if there is anything he can do to lessen the severity. Is there a vitamin he could be taking? Some sort of of ointment that can be purchased? Should I ask the onc to prescribe anything to counter this effect? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
