Hi Harriet, i'm similar to you. I saw the Doc on Monday and i was told to use E45 cream only and simple soap. i have my planning meetng with the team on Friday, when i will get my tattoo.
i've been told it's just a precaution as all the cancer has been removed but it's still scary. I need 15 sessions, everyday for 3 weeks.
Chin up and we can get through this together XX
When you go to your appointment tomorrow they will give you advise on what cream to use. It is important for you to moisturise at least twice a day whilst you are having radiotherapy as you need to keep the skin hydrated. I was recommended to use E45 cream but every hospital is different so check with them tomorrow.
Once you get started on your rads the time will pass quickly and you will soon be at the end of active treatment
