The room where I get my chemo infusions is very cold. They have blankets all around, which kind of grosses me out as they are used by everybody, and who knows how often they are washed? I bring my own but it's not enough, the chill requires two or three blankets and throws. Not to mention that the bags of chemo they hang seem to come straight out of the fridge and chills your veins.
I imagine the room is set to a low temperature because the chemo nurses are always on the go and moving - but for those of us trapped by oversized barcaloungers and chemo poles with cold liquid dripping into our veins, it's really quite uncomfortable.
Miserable, in fact.
Then I read this headline:
Breast Cancer Treated by Freezing Tumors
Wow, who knew?
I guess the room temperature is part of my treatment.
