HI I am 14 months post FEC-T and all but two of my fingernails have grown back. They're pretty weak but the two that are still affected are really horrid. Long haul but I hope you are recovered now xx
Happened to me too. Fingernails were very fragile and kept peeling off for several weeks after chemo finished. Soon recovered though. I plastered my hands, fingers and fingernails in aqueous cream to keep everything well moisturised during the recovery phase.
My toenails are a different matter... mine are still manky 4+years on. I have read on here that some people put a bag of frozen peas over their toes when having taxotere chemo (like a cold cap for the toes) to stop toenails from suffering. I've no idea if it's medically OK to do this but might be worth asking your oncocologist/chemo team and see what they say.
Anyone lost their finger nails ?
Im having my last round of chemotherapy next week and my finger nails have just started lifting off of their nail beds.
Any advice out there to help avoid losing my nails completely ?
How too look after them and promote growth if they do fall out ?
