Hi fellow Lupies out there! How do you feel about going abroad now you have Lupus. As a family we always spent half term in the UK - mostly at Centre Parcs and in June or later in the year abroad. However, since my Lupus has been confirmed just over 12 months ago and because of the Cellcept or MMF medication. (it states to keep out of the sun). I am very frightened of going abroad 1) if you have to stay out of the sun from 11 to 3pm that's quite a lot of time out of your holiday 2) Petrified of getting skin cancer - even though the Dr prescribed me with suncream 60 3) I always cover up in the sun anyway so that wouldn't be a problem. But i am very scared of taking ill or having a flare whilst abroad incase the hospitals do not know how to treat this.
Do any one you still holiday abroad and what precautions do you take?
Thanks in advance, Lulabelle x
