I would love to know the answer to this as well. I am only through 1 of 8 but being cold all the time is not pleasant. Lucky (I guess) I have chemopause and I get hot flashes to help with the coldness. I will be following this question!

I also have thryoid issued so always been cold but finished 5 months of chemo and I had not considered that the reason for being so cold now. I thought it was thryoid and asked for another ths test. I wear layers, the PGE bill is outrageous...it's insane how cold I am. Yet my body is clammy at night and I try to kick some covers off or turn blanket down and I began to shake from the cold when I do...I am in sunny Ca and today is beautiful outside but I will go out looking like I live in Alaska! lol
no straight answer from my oncologist either...
I am doing better now, 7 months out from my last chemo. Boy, was I freezing during chemo. My husband and probably neighbors thought I was crazy this summer when I would be outdoors in the sunshine, 80 degrees in my 3 layers of clothing including a sweatshirt. Sometimes, I even wore gloves! I was so chilled during chemo. I do agree that the chemopause helped because I would get hot flashes all the sudden as well. I am not near as cold now, but I do think I run a little colder than normal. I hope you do well and eventually start to warm up!
