Re: Nail Extensions on FEC

Hi Mintymoo

I'm not sure what the policy of having nail extensions is at your local hospital is, but i was advised no nail extensions at all during chemo, this was because the extensions can mask/cause nail infections so i would either steer well clear or check with your nursing staff first. Nail varnish shouldnt be a problem if applied carefully, maybe keep the voucher as a treat to look forward to after all your treatment is over and your fighting fit Smiley Happy

Take care

Nail Extensions on FEC

I know I've got a lot on my plate and this may seem like a trivial question but a friend gave me a voucher to have my nails done & I was hoping to have nail extensions put on next week in readiness for the girls xmas party. I have my first FEC chemo session the following week - does anyone have any experience of keeping their nail extensions during treatment?

 

Thanks girls.
