Hey all you wonderful warriors, I just want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

I have not been on in awile, my hubby is doing well. Still has balance issues, massive sore throat and now I believe a pinched nerve in his leg. Other than that he's great. I was wondering a few weeks ago I noticed he had what loos like age spots all over his forearm and he said they showed up a week or two ago. Has anyone had this issue. From no age spots to both forearms having at least 20-30 spots?

Wishing you a happy new year.  I don't have any dealings with the age spots issue, but I am sure someone will chime in.

No issues with the age spots...

Has he been in the sun much, not sure where you are (or forgot)... But it could be changes in his pigment due to the chemo, or more sensitive... If nothing else something to follow up on.

As I fish a lot, live in Florida, and I'm fair, I see my Dermo at least twice a year.

Happy Holidays,
John

Sounds like things are definitely headed in the right direction. I know he has had some really bad side effects. As far as the age spots go, did he ever take Erbitux? I ask as I am unfortunately battling the beast again, and take Erbitux once a week. The pimple like acne is gone, but I have little dark spots all over my legs, rear end and lower back. Dermatologist says they will lighten up over time, but most likey not go away completely.

 

Have a great 2013
