Okay i do feel quite lucky that i didnt have to have chemo and am on my top up sessions for radiation therapy. Not only is my skin burning, i have really bad fatigue & feel feverish. I am crumbling today & just wanna cry! I know I'm towards the end of treatment but its not easy.
I'm so sorry to hear you're suffering side effects from the radiation therapy you're having at the moment Jbains. It can be very tough but I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone and we're here to support you every step of the way. I have found some general information about looking after your skin during radiotherapy on our website here as well information about coping with tiredness which I hope will help you at this time as well.
If you do want to talk to someone about how best to manage these effects do give our cancer nurses a call. They're available Monday - Friday on 0808 800 4040, which is free to call from a UK landline, between 9a.m - 5p.m.
I hope you feel better soon Jbains and remember we're here for you if you need us.
