My fingernails showed dark spot coming from the direction of the nail root. I. never did do anything special and was working full-time and doing everything normally. I'd found that walking (30 minutes everyday) does wonders.

The radiation does burn a little bit after a couple of weeks. I was given a lotion sample and then purchased my own. Everything has a remedy. Just be sure to mention it to the nurse practitioner...

Hang in there. Your strength will gradually come back...
