When taking folfox is being cold a side effect? I know about the cold sensitivity in mouth, hands and feet. But was wondering if it also makes your whole body cold? Hopefully he isn't fighting an infection. It's only been 1 week since his first round.
Do you mean cold as in he feels cold, or a lower than normal temperature?
I definitely feel the cold more since doing oxi, which I’m pretty sure is neuropathy-related. Wool-blend socks and gloves are my friend in winter.
