Now she has it again, its heartbreaking. And I am physically unable to be there by her side, during this time she needs me the most. I am embarrassed to say I am currently incarcerated.

Hi. I am about to go through radiation for breast cancer on my left side. Have been having some tingling and nerve issues since the lumpectomy (2 months ago) but they have mostly resolved themselves until now. I did the set up for prone position radiation and the table is soooo uncomfortable that my arm is killing me and my arm and hand go numb with pain. Lasted 24 hours. Just had the first run through and was worse than the set up. Thinking that this may cause permanent nerve damage to my arm?? Should I have them change radiation to the face up position as I don't want to toy with permanent nerve damage?View Thread

I am still on vinorelbine and Herceptin (and have been for 4 years and am not NED), so my hair is a bit like baby soft and poker straight, and only about 1/3 of the original thickess. My eyelashes used to be long and full. My eyebrows weren't great but I still missed them when they fell out.
So here are some things I've tried: A product called EyEnvy which slows the shedding and regrowth of eyebrows and particularly eyelashes letting them grow for longer, and thus fuller. It works like a hot da*n. It is only sold in spas, not online so you will have to call around. It seems like a huge price ($90) but the tube lasts 5 months if you use it sparingly, which is what they advise. Using it more than once a day is a waste of the product as it doesn't speed up regrowth. My eyelashes took 3 months to come in and I couldn't be more please. I had a
I used Latisse only for my eyebrows, and it did get them growing back. I now use EyEnvy to keep them going. Latisse kind of scares me. A woman I didn't know told me that I had gorgeous eyelashes, and she was jealous! Boy did I have good news for her!
I have used Rogaine, and I'm not sure it did anything much for my hair. It may have encouraged a bit of growth but not noticeably so I continue to look for solutions..
I am now trying an Aveda product that is based on the same principal as EyEnvy making the shedding process slower, so the hair appears fuller for longer. I haven't used it very long so am not sure yet whether it works. It is called Aveda's Invati Scalp Revitalizer. It is not cheap so I'm hoping it works....time will tell.
