  • White fingers

    Hei All
    It is now 7 years since my chemo treatment for TC (and all i well). But I suffer a lot from white fingers (Raynauds). How many of you can say the same. My fingers don’t get better with time.

    Hi Anders

    I am also a member of the "white fingers" club,and suffer from Raynauds
    syndrome. I underwent 3 x BEP earlier in the year,and am curious if it was one of the chemicals,or a combination of the 3 that caused it.

    What was your chemotherapy regime 7 years ago ?

      Ooh! Ooh! Me too!

      My Reynaud's generally flares up when the temps drop. But like mikeygti I'm still relatively fresh from chemo (just 13 months out). It'll be interesting to see what the next few winters are like here. I would imagine Denmark has a fairly long winter season, I'm sure that doesn't help.

        My regime was the same as it is today.
