Hello everyone. I am in the last phase of Cancer Treatment. Today I had boost #4 of 9, making that #29 of 34 total. After treatment #23 a week ago Thursday, my tissue broke down around the surgery site of my axilla, under my treated breast, and across my neck and collarbone. I was using the biafine as the doctor advised, but it didn't seem to prevent the terrible conditions I was experiencing. Each day was worse and I had two additional treatments once this broke out. The skin was broken and just terribly uncomfortable. I would weep when I woke up in the morning because of the pain under my arm with the wound breaking open. Plus I was just so tired of everything. Thursday the radiation tech suggested Aquaphor and I used that thick over my radiation areas during the night. Friday I took a shower and the Aquaphor had softened the skin enough to get rid of the crispy bits and I felt Much Better! I recommend the Aquaphor and wish I had been using it sooner. I admit I was expecting a cream, but the Aquaphor is like vaseline and really protects and heals. Hope my experience helps someone. I pretty much sailed through the other treatments (3 surgeries - biopsy, lumpectomy w/sentinel node, axilla removing 19 more nodes -- 4 rounds of AC), but the radiation has been the hardest part for me. 6 more to go. Some say to me "only 5 more!", but I am saying "still 5 more". I am truly looking forward to May 20 which will be my first day of No Cancer Treatment. Love and hugs to all of you brave people. We are the warriors!
