This little tingling feeling

Yesterday, after feeling the pangs all night, during the day i had a preview of another side-effect.

I went shopping, in a supermarket where the overall temperature is cool to cold, and gets from cold to icy whenever you get close to one of the fresh food areas (meat, fish, cheese, dairy...).

At one point, i put one of my preferred hands, the right one, in the display to take a piece of cheese, swiss type hard cheese with a lot of holes.
And suddenly, as i was touching that merchandise, i felt a few slight tingles on the tips of a few fingers! A bit like needles, not really painful, but it shocked me as i immediately understood that this was the sign of things to come...

Goodbye freezer, i enjoyed your company so much, hand-made ice-cream! But we need to go our own separate ways, don't worry it's only temporary.

Hello gloves, no more metal cans, although coke zero helps with the nightly digestion, go for the plastic bottles from now on.

i had a quick read about my personal poison, the platinum coated oxaliplatin, which is one of the two drugs i am getting, and seems to be the one that produces the most side-effects.

Oxaliplatin Side Effects:
Important things to remember about Oxaliplatin side effects:
Most people do not experience all of the Oxaliplatin side effects listed.
Oxaliplatin side effects are often predictable in terms of their onset and duration.
Oxaliplatin side effects are almost always reversible and will go away after treatment is complete.
There are many options to help minimize or prevent Oxaliplatin side effects.
There is no relationship between the presence or severity of Oxaliplatin side effects and the effectiveness of Oxaliplatin.

Tomorrow i'll go in more detail about the type of side-effects and their statistical frequency!
