Ice Berg Feet

After sitting here with my coffee for a while, I decided to get dressed and put socks on, my feet are so cold right now. Chemo has given a whole new meaning to cold feet. D can attest to that ... they are definitely ice bergs.

That’s it for now ...

Daria, I use a rice bag for cold feet at night when I go to bed. Basically a rice bag is a cotton bag or sock filled with one pound of white rice. Heat in the microwave approx 2 minutes and use as a heating bag at the foot of the bed. The heat remains long enough to make your feet toasty warm at night. Daytime I try to use a warm slipper of some sort. Cold feet are miserable feet. I've dealt with them for years.

I went from one extreme to the other with this...on A/C my feet were like ice cubes. On Taxol my feet were so hot I went out with my boots and no socks in the middle of winter!! Keep those tootsies as warm as you can!

What's up with the cold feet anyway?? It's 98 degrees outside and I walk around with shoes and socks on while everyone else is wearing sandals. I know what you mean, Daria.

Daria I think you should keep them on your husbands back until they warm up.

Love Renee xoxo

These are great suggestions but be careful... with nueropathy, you lose your sensations of hot and cold. It is easy to get burnt or frost-bitten. Have a loved one check the tempature of what you are using. :) Luv ya.
