My husband and I are avid fishermen. We spend all of our spare time in our boat down on the Columbia River fishing for steelhead and salmom...summer, fall and spring runs. As a matter of fact we are scheduled to take off for the first two weeks in August and already have our cottage arrangements paid for and ready to go. Of course now we are in a waiting pattern because of this cancer I have and not knowing when treatment will start etc, etc. I tan easily and by summers end I have a great tan from all the fishing time spent on the water. So far this year I haven't gotten a lick of sun and have zero color. I'm too tired to sit out for even short periods of time. I'm also concerned that the sun might harm me with this cancer going on. I've thought about going and getting the spray tan done, but feel like I should first consult my doctor because of not knowing what chemicals are used in a spray tan.Will the sun harm me at this point and is it better to just not get out in it? I sure don't want to create a new set of problems if I can aviod it. Any advice would be appreciated. Oh...also...once my hair is gone I assume I should never get sun on my bald head...right? Sure hope we will be able to go to the river as we've planned. My theory is...I can fish less if necessary and if I need to rest then why not do it at the cottage on the river as to doing it at home? We will only be an hour and half away from home, so we can easily drive back and forth for treatments...right?
