Hi. I am new to this. I had 3 chemos instead of 6 because of neuropathy symptoms. I've lost 2 fingernails &another one is just about to come off. . Is there anyone who had the same experienced?
Hello and welcome
Sorry to hear that you have experienced some neuropathic symptoms. I don't know what it's like to lose fingernails but I can imagine that it's quite uncomfortable not to mention scary!
I lost 5 toe nails during the Taxotere treatment phase of my chemotherapy (last year) Weird thing is that I've lost another toe nail and both big toe nails are threatening to shed again (my last treatment was in June 2016)
It's a very individualised thing, what you do and don't react to, and what happens to one person might not necessarily happen to you.
All the best take care Michelle x
Hi. I lost all my finger and toe nails while having chemo. When they grew back they were quite strong but now they tend to split easily. (21 months since I finished chemo. Fec t.).
I was told to paint my nails with a dark nail polish and use gloves around the house to avoid washing my hands too much.
