My mom had hodgkins and was given Cobalt radiation- as whatever they did it was the largest dose you could get. They gave her 6mths to live. 38yrs later, numerous allergies, adrenals not working, and now the worse case of eczema and psorisis I have seen on her (entire body and half her face) I want to try the sun lamp but she was told never to go in the sun after that treatment that she survived. I can't find out why or if its okay as NOTHING is working on the skin. Her father had this and then it turned into skin cancer and passed. Does anyone know about sun exposure after Cobalt therapy for a patient that was expected to expire?
