Hey liliana day 2 already! Check the skin where its hurting. I used to cream my boob but forget the actual nipple and it started hurting. Everyone reacts differently so maybe mention it to the medics.

I'm afraid the tiredness has never gone away for me and I'm 17 months post treatment. Take it easy and rest as much as you need to but I always made sure I went out for a walk every day. I had read that a bit of exercise helps battle the fatigue. Don't know if it helped but I tried everything!

Hope all you ladies are rocking on and enjoying your evening as best as poss.

Sounds familiar. Do you have something called bio oil there? I found a combination of aloe vera, aveeno and bio oil kept my skin from breaking at all but it will depend very much on what your rt team say. Some don’t like you. Using anything other than what they give you.

Hi rileyroo, I just did an online search and yes! it's easily available in most stores. I will try it. Thank you!!

I also the top of my lip inside like a little sensitive?? maybe it is or maybe it is not from the Rad, but I didn't have it before.  Anyway, I'm happy to be on the way out even though I still need to take the HT, But hopefully, the worst is over and I don't have to deal with this monster again!!


Thanks again!! Big hug to everyone!!!

If you find your boob feels hot immediately after treatment, I did sometimes, I used to put chiiled aloe gel on straight afterwards. Took the heat out beautifully. Used to clean it off when I got home and put cream on. Yes, I was that ocd about my skin!

ha! that's what I did last night, I cut a piece of my aloe vera plant and put it on a bag on the fridge and I applied it today right after treatment. and after a while the cream. Hey, great minds think alike! Happy

Morning ladies!

not sure why I’ve woke up in such a good mood but not gonna complain! Had date night last night and was so nice to be normal. I was convinced Jamie didn’t fancy me anymore as my loss of brows and lashes look like I’ve just landed from outer space but he’s been amazing! I did before and after shots yesterday. So amazing what false lashes eyebrows and bronzing balls can do. Have my scan at 2 today to see what this lump is playing at. Hopefully know more by this afternoon. Have a good day all xx

In both pictures you look fabulous. You actually really look great with no hair! That wig is fantastic....proper A Lister style. I bet you turned a few a nice way.  I’m very jealous. I’ve never looked as good as that at any time in my life. All that’s happened to me is I’ve grown a very noticeable silver grey streak  right down the side of my head. Modelling for you now I reckon my girl. Happy

Thanks for all the kind comments ladies. I’m back from my scan and it’s confirmed that the tumor has shrank by 50% and no signs of cancer in the lymph nodes. Doing a happy dance as we speak. Bottle of merlot for me tonight methinks xx
