Re: gel nails

HI Ruth thank you for your reply.  I did have it done for my granddaughters christening back in Sept but pre chemo days.  Was thinking about doing it again but after your reply have decided against it having 2nd chemo fri.  Are you new to the forums?

Re: gel nails

Hi Anx56

 

Probably a little late in reply but I wouldnt if I was you.    I had gel nails at the end of my chemo and didnt have my cuticles trimmed as the chemo damaged my nails considerably.  I thought I was doing the right thing but when the gel nails started to come off they damaged my already fragile nails further.

gel nails

Not sure if Im posting in the right place but here goes ... Im one week post po from MX had lymph nodes removed 5 weeks ago.  I have a special occasion to go to this weekend.  I would love to have gel nails done think I have read best not to have cuticles cut because if risk of infection any advise whether to have them done or not done?  Would love just to have a treat.
