  • Hi Granis,

    Have you tried Aveeno cream, it's my miracle for dry skin. My Onc prescribed it for me and a vit B supplement, both helped. I've also found wearing sandals (actually flip-flops I bought on holiday) and keeping my feet cool. Avoid hot baths and try not to walk long distances in one go.

    Hope the results are good :-)


  • Thank you for your good wishes x

  • Hi granis,

    Sorry you are feeling poorly,as lost4words said Aveena cream is really good be kind to yourself,cheer yourself up with things you like to do,take it easy, a little bit of walking,but not too much and see what your team recommend you do.

    Most of all good luck with your results and appointment with your onc,

    Best wishes,

  • Thank you Carole x

  • HI Granis, how about soaking your feet for twenty mins in a basin of warm water and epsom salts, this will help the pain and should ease it a little. Just be careful dry your feet properly and maybe the sore toe might be soothed, I would mention it to your onc when you see him tho. The Aveeno cream is good for dry skin and there is also a cream your onc can prescribe. So you are done and dusted and I wish you well with the scan results

  • Thank you Susuki Imwill certainly try that and thanks for your good wishes xx

  • Hi Granis. You're on the right end of it. Caelyx is a bit of a bugger but you did it ! I had all those side effects plus a few more. They go. All that remains for me is an occasional croaky voice & a few little pit-marks on my hands. It got me a remission - that's the main thing. Good luck with yours. Pauline

  • Thank you Pauline I am hoping for a better remission this time I only had 3 1/2 months last time xxx

  • Hiya, I'm on Calaeyx and have been using the udderly smooth cream it's worked wonders to my skin xx
