An oncologist at the hospital (not my local oncologist) suggested that I wear tight chilled gloves and socks during infusions. I guess to cut down circulation to those areas while the poison is strongest. Did anyone try that? Given the cold sensitivity people get, is it going to be possible?
Thanks for any advice.
It's in your bloodstream so I would think that it would circulate. I guess that his hypothesis is that it some gets deposited in areas. I think that I'd ask him for research on this. Just remember that cancer cells can go through the bloodstream too.
