Hi; I just finished 25 weeks of radiation and everything went well skin wise. I lathered in lubriderm 4 times a day. I sometimes felt like I was swimming in the lotion, which in turn, no burns or pealing. I still use it daily and now I use it everywhere as I quickly found out how hydrating this lotion is. Highly recommend this lotion for anyone going into radiation or is in radiation. Lather thickly and it will work. I am now on this lotion for life. I no longer have to go through all the many products out there as the saying goes. When it works don't change it. The other thing that happened in radiation; Anxiety! Lots of Anxiety. I did not know I had this underlying issue and it came out full force when radiation started. Is there anyone else out there that this happened to. I am now on Ativan,not that I take it daily but I do take it often. Anything and anywhere can just set it off and I am still trying to understand why this is happening. Does anyone have any questions like I do out there. Tamoxifen was just started in August and I had only 1 hot flash but joint pain,not hard to describe. Severe joint pain in just about all joints. Have a hard time with this when I open my eyes, overwhelming pain in each and every joint, Fingers and knees the worst. My port was removed as my body rejected it and now have a superficial blood clot at the site.. Feeling so overwhelmed with someone who only took 2 tylenol now and then to being diagnosed with breast cancer and taking so many medications for so many symptoms. I am so truly grateful for still seeing all the beautiful things in this world. Don't get me wrong I am not complaining but more scared about these things and just wondering if there are people out there with similar stories and questions. It would be great to hear from all or any of you that are going through these and find no one understands completely about it.
