HI Posters. I will shortly return to the Southern Hemisphere where it will be mid Summer and I will be exposed to a lot more sun. The Doctors said not to go out in the sun during my treatment (RT and Erbitux) but I am unsure of how long that should be for ?? I am in my 8th week post treatment.
Obviously i need to be careful anyway as I am fair but to what extent should I be careful i.e. 100% covered up all the time ???
And What does happen if you get exposure beyond what would normally be regular sunburn.
While I will check again with my Onc. it is always good to get feedback from those actually going through it or having been there for some time. Does this precaution last 10 years ???
All Responses welcome.
