Just had my first oxaliplatin chemo yesterday and my veins on each arm felt like they were burning. Any one else have this happen to them? I start Xeloda tonight. I had colorectal cancer resection 2 years ago with chemo but only could get through 4 treatments out of 12. Then Jan this year had lung surgery to take out a tumor and now chemo for 6 months. I am having lots of other side effects like headaches, tingling in mouth, hands and feet, feel like throwing up. Most of all I can't seem to wrap my mind around this whole cancer ordeal.
