Hi all, I'm due to start Thursday 3/4, have pre assessment tomorrow and also wound check as it's not fully healed yet. Bit worried because I've had infection in site of gland removal under arm and it's taken 4 weeks to get clear and 3 lots of antibiotics!! Anyone had similar problems? I love everyone's positivity.....just my style ladies.....wait to hear from you all and thanks in advance.

Hi London1.....I watched a video on uTube about applying makeup after hair loss/chemo....it's very good. I start chemo next week, hopefully. I say hopeful because I've had an infection after surgery so it's already been delayed by one week :-/. I went to the Body Shop last week and bought all Parabens free makeup. May I suggest some eye shadow lipstick and an eye pencil....that'll get you started. Btw I threw out nearly all my shampoos conditioners, makeup and toiletries when I read up,about them and saw they contained carcinogenic stuff...appalled! I've decided not to have the cold cap after much research, have had my hair cut really short, and will get a wig. I already have one or two scarves and will buy online something called a buff in a light colour(similar to my hair) to wear underneath, plus a type of night cap....you lose 1/5th body heat thro your head apparently. Sorry it's a bit long my answer...hope it helps :-)). Keep smiling and I 'll try to as well!
