Thank you - skin is now getting worse which was to be expected - but it does get you down - you do one thing to try and get this cancer sorted and then the side effects send you back - will see how skin gets on next few days or I forsee yet another 100 mile round trip to the clinic!!

Hello everyone - just dropping into the forum. I finish my sessions on Tuesday. I like so many others have used Aveeno cream - it has worked well. I am red and very hot but the skin so far seems okay.
My trip to hospital has been very exhausting - 2-3hrs each way.
I have had added complications so my care had to be in central London - the clinic were wonderful and I have had transport every day BUT it is still leaving at 6am and back anytime between 1-2pm.
Needless to say I have managed to do very little in this 3 week period.
It is weird also to be feelign anxious that treatment is about to end - the hospital has become a second home to me - I have asked about getting pychological help and will get an update Tuesday.
To everyone starting in November - I send all the best to you to soldier through and if in doubt - ask on here or ask at the clinic - the staff are wonderful.

Oh darling I am sending lots of positive vibes to your hubby for his chemo.
Just make sure that you still look after yourself, we tend to forget this when we have a loved one who is poorly as well, you will still be feeling the effects of the rads, so keep up your regime for the next couple of weeks.
Glad you liked it and that it made you smile
