My doctor is going to talk to me on my visit in early June about going on Alecensa. I have read about it and talked to pharmacist who has had people on it. My biggest concern includes eyesight, lung problems, extra fatigue and right now sun burn. I couldn't go outside pharmacist said unless I had sunscreen at least 50 on me and still could burn. He had one person who went outside for less then five minutes and burned scalped really bad. Right now I have no known cancer ( scan was clean) except for possible one in brain (had radiation on it but won't know if it worked until mid June scan). Any information would be appreciated. I am thinking of delaying starting the medication until fall for I really want to enjoy the summer. Am I crazy for wanting really wanting another sunshine summer? I live in Nebraska.
