Well it’s been 3 months since I finished my chemotherapy and although I have recovered well, there are still some signs of what has happened to my body.
The docetaxel that I had for my last 3 sessions had the side effect of damaging your nails. I did as instructed and got away with it. However now the brittle nails are now growing out, it is causing a lot of problems. As the nail breaks so easily and are close to the skin, I have been wearing glue on nails to help relieve the pain and so they look a bit nicer. While taking off my nails today to replace them I thought I would take a photo to show you and you can see some of the less well known side effects
