Once we have completed treatments, chemo and radiation,etc., how much sun is safe?
Do we need to avoid sun, or wear high sunblock?
What about vacations to tropical places? I know Linda has gone on a couple of vacations, do you lay in the sun, or seek cover, and wear sunscreen?
Also the pelvic area/tummy needs to be covered up from sunning forever, following radiation correct?
Is it ok to tan alittle bit? I have always had sensitive skin, and am afraid my skin will remain even a bit more sensitive now after the chemo, even tho' last chemo was in Nov 2010.
Also, what about the use of self tanners? Are they safe, or best to avoid because of the chemicals in them?
Thank you all and look forward to your feedback.
