I wonder if shingles is a side effect of cancer, being under so much stress, just lately, I  have recently recovered from Breast Cancer.

My husband died in 2015, breast cancer in 2016, now in 2017 shingles, I  hope this is the end of problems and 2018 is a better year

It is now 2019  and have gone did  with another infection, I am curious, as I had a right  mastectomy  in 2017  and  since then have had a right chest infection, over and over again.

I have had since October 2 Chest infections, treated with Antibiotics , and shingles in  the eye again in December.

I am shattered and very tired  it so difficult trying to look after yourself on  your own and been  73, I haven't got the stamina,  to be honest I have had enough,  my kids aren't supportive, my son said not again Mum, it's become embarrassing
