Hello my friends! I know it has been some time since I wrote a blog post. I started work last week and with daily radiation treatments, I’m sure a busy girl! I’ve completed 8 out of 33 rounds of radiation and so far so good!
I’ve been moisturizing 3-4 times a day. During the day, I use Shea Moisture All-Natural Lotion and at night I use Aquaphor. My skin hasn’t changed at all and I’m just taking extra care of it because I don’t want it to get too red. I’m avoiding deodorant before my treatments since they are at noontime. After my treatment, I put lotion and deodorant on. I’ve also avoided shaving my armpits during this time since I don’t want it to get too irritated. Yes, I did in fact say SHAVING! I have hairs under my arms! My oncologist was impressed when he saw my skin yesterday, so I must be doing something right! 🙂
Next week is the halfway point of radiation and I cannot wait. The whole process is pretty easy. The challenging part is sitting in Boston traffic! I’ve been a bit tired but I think it’s just the combination of working and going to treatment every day.
I’ve also been rocking my beautiful Radiant Wrap. If you are currently going through radiation treatment, I highly suggest you check out this amazing company. This wrap is soft, beautiful and it makes me feel so comfortable while I am waiting for my treatment. I’ve received so many compliments on it and every hospital should get these for their patients!
Are there any tips that you recommend during the second part of radiation when it’s the hardest?
