Hi Maggie, I have been mostly resting, I had my herceptin injection on Thursday and I think that makes me tired. My appetite is good and since I lost weight whilst on chemo I am pleased with that.
My friend is taking me tomorrow so hopefully we will do something nice afterwards.
I am am an active person, love walking, love being in the countryside and accepting the fatigue has been the hardest thing for me, in fact the thought of fatigue frightens me because I find myself stuck indoors, my least favourite place.
Luckily, the journey tomorrow is lovely and I get to see some lush countryside.

sending you hugs to help.
For me, the staff said it was okay to moisturise before treatment, they have said diprobase cream or E45 cream okay but they were not okay with me using aloe Vera.
I hope the staff are gentle and friendly with you as I think this always helps.

Morning Anxious Soul - got butterflies and am getting a bit nervous tbh - feels like end of summer - start of a new term.
A question - do I not have to moisturise in morning before treatment ? know I have to moisturise loads but can’t remember and can’t find anything to say whether you should just shower before rads but not moisturise.
