Brown Nails

Brown Nails

I had read about some patients having their nails become discolored -and even losing them.
Mine started turning brown after my 5th chemo (TCH) -I thought I had gotten away ok! Now I am done with all 6-but it's getting worse .
I was putting tea tree oil on them every night -religiously and I thought it was helping and my nails actually seemed stronger.
So-for anyone who has had this problem-
did anything help?
did it go away over time?
thanks

Sorry this took so long... I had another PET scan because my breast cancer is spreading and they want to see specifically the areas affected.

Thanks you-why did you have the PET scan?

The Pet scan done in 2020 showed the breast cancer had travelled.

I was using tea tree oil too and yes-I know my fingernails felt stronger and all was well until just before treatment 5 of 6 and then the discoloration of toenails and fingernails started . it took quite a while to grow out-but luckily it did
how did you know you had a reoccurence?
