Gloves & Socks for Icing Hands & Feet During Chemo

Hi Everyone - I just finished my chemotherapy and used gloves and socks with blue ice inserts to ice my hands and feet during the chemo to prevent neuropathy. Since I am finished with them now, I'd love to be able to pass them on to someone who could use them. I have quite a supply - 2 sets of gloves with an extra set of inserts and 1 set of socks with at least 4 sets of inserts. If anyone is interested, I'd bel glad to ship them to you - just let me know. They worked really well for me - I finished with no neuropathy at all!

    If you still have the gloves and socks, I would love to have them! I'm starting chemo later this month.

    I cross-posted on a Facebook group but have not heard back from the first person who responded. I am giving her a day to get back me but if she doesn't, I'll be back here to get your info.

    Sorry - she did get back to me so they are going to her.

    Amazon has them for not too much money.

    Best of luck with your treatment!

    Hi srh405,

    I completed my chemo on February. I have same kind of gloves and sucks. If you still need them, contact me (I don't know if you can send me a private message or not), I can send them to you.

    This is an older post, but hoping someone will still respond.

    My Mom is about to start chemo (in Poland) and I want to get some gloves and socks on Amazon for her. Do you remember which brand you got?

    Amazon has too many to pick from, getting overwhelmed just looking at them and I want to get something that will actually help her.

    Thank you!

    I got mine from Amazon and they were the NatraCure brand.
