If you"er having trouble getting to and from your treatments, call the American Cancer Society. They will make sure you have a ride to all your appointments. I called on a Monday and they made sure I had a ride on Wed for my radiation treatments. They get you rides for the whole week, then you call again for the next week. They are wonderful! Get the phone # from the phone book or the internet. God bless you all!View Thread
I'm taking Femara (letrozol). Is that the same thing as tamoxifen? Tamox sounds really bad, and the side effects are awful. Does femara have the same side effects? Why didn't he give me tamoxifen? I'm glad he didn't! I've only been taking them for 2mo.
I forgot to tell you that you might not be able to buy the Radiaderm in the store yet. Try some free samples from your doctor, to see if you like it. I got so many, that I didn't have to buy any. When I was getting the name off the box to tell you'll, I noticed that it says, to purchase go to radiaderm.com I thought it was wonderful! NancyView Thread
If your having radiation, ask your doctor for "Radiaderm Radiation Relief." The doctor should have free samples.(mine did) It's a advanced skincare system with Lactokine. It's the GREATEST, and if you use it to start with, it will keep you from getting burned.
There are two steps to it, the 1st lotion(gel) is to be put on right after your treatment.(before you get dressed) It soothes your burn and feels great! The 2nd lotion is to be put on 3 times a day.(if you can)Good luck.
I'm new to this site. I use to join in on the Depression Support Group years ago. But I quit being on there, because it got too hard for me to understand! Duh!.....Have you changed it, to make it easier? This site seems easier then it was 3yrs. ago, but it's still confusing.
I'm a survivor of StageIII Breast Cancer(3cm) I had chemo for 8mo.,to shrink my tumor, then a mastectomy, and last but not least, 6wks. of radiation. My last rad. treatment was 2mo. ago.
I just found this site and I'm still trying to figure it out! I wrote this to ask why a lot of these post are years old? I'm sure there's an explanation, and I just haven't found it yet. Thank you. LukeView Thread
