Cold hands/feet

Posted 21 Jan 2021 at 09:00

Hi Everybody, I had my Robotic Prostatectomy in Oct 2019. I'm pretty much back to normal now although I have developed cold hands and feet? has anyone else out there having the same issues?

Hi Phil,  I've not read anything like that caused by the operation.  This winter I've had colder than normal hands and feet.   Poor circulation can be a cause or possibly a pinched nerve higher up although I've put it down to the weather.   My wife complains about it more than me, which got me a hot water bottle,  that helps.  Regards  Peter

Hi Phil, do you still get this? I similarly had a robotic prostate removal and radiotherapy and now 6 months into two years of taking HT (zoladex) I’ve noticed I’m getting really numb / cold hands especially in the morning but more so now lasting all day. Seeing my oncologist about it next week.

Not quite the same thing, but I've always been quite happy in relatively cold rooms.

This changed very noticeably when I was on HT, and I felt cold unless the room was 21+C.

Having finished hormone therapy 2 years ago, I'm back to being fine in rooms at 16C.
