Same. I have stealth strips but only on one side. So there is still a fair bit of metal I can end up touching.I've been wondering if that mole skin raps for your sticks would help any. Would put a barier between the metal and your hands! Camo duct tape has helped some to.
Platinum based chemotherapy agents are notorious for causing neuropathy and cold intolerance. Oxaliplatin is a mainstay in colon cancer treatment protocols and is platinum based. Thing that sucks is that the changes are irreversible. Gabapentin can be somewhat helpful. Maybe something to mention to your dad to look in to?I think TNbowhunter nailed it.
One little possibility to consider is chemotherapy induced neuropathy. Or possibly whateverthefuckotherinduced neuropathy. All I know is my dad beat colon cancer 8 years ago but it still causes legit physical pain to his hands if he holds a cold drink or tries snow blowing the driveway before one of his sons get there. Stubborn old jarhead.
