I have just moved from oxcap to folfirinox to treat my bowel cancer and since starting my teeth have become extremely sensitive to cold. Any suggestions on a good toothpaste to combat this (or indeed any other remedy)?

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    That sounds very uncomfortable but it's good that you've reached out to the community to see what other people are using.

    As you know, the online community is divided into different support forums so I'm going to recommend that you join and post in the bowel cancer forum as you'll then connect directly with others who may have had a similar issue.

    To join, just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    It would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
