Up date on Parp inhibitor treatment

Saw my Onc yesterday who is happy with my treatment so far.

Side effects so far are,chilly hands and feet,nausea,fatigue and loss of appetite.

Chewing gum helps the nausea,eating little and often helps the lack of appetite but I haven't figured out the treatment for chilled hands and feet yet as its internal,hot water bottles,gloves etc haven't worked.My CA125 has come down to 17,the lowest since diagnosis.Ive more energy,haven't required Movicol for the past 5 weeks which is an achievement as I needed it on daily basis since diagnosis.
