So far so good! One week into the chemo treatments I have few side effects. The only one is a reaction to cold!  Feels like frost bite.

If any part is exposed to more chilly than room temps causes an immediate sceaming pain. Hands and face especially.  But. . . If you forget and put ice in your drink, the resulting pain runs all the way down throat to your belly.

Until you are able to follow it with a warm liquid you writhe in pain.  Fortunately this is pretty much over 5 days after infusion.  Untill your next infusion. Then it is on again.

The worst is your hands. You have to use your hands.  My winter gloves were unavailable, couldn't find them.

I found leather garden gloves. They do the job!

Ice gloves!
