Hi all, I have been having chest pains for the last 4 days. I thought I better get it checked out before I have to start my treatments up again. I was suppose to start the Avastin on Wednesday. The doctor told me to come in today and when I was getting ready to go, I see this rash on my boob and on my back. And I thought to myself.... no, it can't be. Sure enough that is what it is. The doctor said, Well that explains your chest pains. You have shingles. Now I have to take care of this before I start my treatment up again.

Oh Whoa is me.... does this ever stop?????

    I am sorry to hear this.
    I am sorry to hear this. This happened to my mother after she has surgery for bowel cancer. We were told it was the trauma of ths surgery that brought it on.
    I hope you soon feel better

    Is it always something?
    Oh dear, shingles on top of everything else? How long does the doctor say it will take before it goes away?

    My doctor recommended that I
    My doctor recommended that I get the Shingles vaccine. It can be given whether you have had Shingles or not. I had a very mild case several years ago. Our insurance would not cover it, so we went to a satellite county clinic and paid $20.00 each. The doctor's office charges way more.
