Skin after radiation

Yes, this hurts as much as it looks like it does.


  1. I’m a big believer in using Sunscreen on Sunburn after the fact. Give it a try in a small spot and see what happens. Hopefully, this will go away soon and you can return to your normal activities without any after effects.

  2. Oh Nicole, that looks so awful. Glad I didn’t hug you when I saw you yesterday (I’m not really a hugger anyway). I guess it’s at least evidence of your fight directly on that stubborn tumor. Now that all of the poisons and bad stuff are gone, here’s to only good things going into your precious body!

  3. Happy healing, happy 2013. Lucky 13. Here’s to new beginnings!

    I can’t believe how loud the breath was that I just took in and released on your behalf. What a huge set of hurdles is behind you!

    Wow – that does look painful. This is the first time in all your postings that I feel like saying “oh, you poor thing” because it looks so raw and nasty. Hang in there; keep the grease on it! So glad you’ve gotten through all this with a smile on your face. What an inspiration you are to me and so many others.


  6. OUCH….almost done…will heal quickly. Keep that arm moving !!! So very proud of you. LOVE LOVE LOVE Always, Your very lucky mom. (hint: cool packs under arm – ahhhhh Nice!!)

    Nicole, you have triumphed over your cancer! Not one moment has been easy for you but you persevered and WON. You are a true hero in my book. Prayers for your continued healing.
