Why is my skin tender to the touch ever since chemo?

At first I thought it was from all the fluid retention, but 2 years after my last chemo my skin is still tender. Anything tight fitting is uncomfortable. From shoes to waist bands.

  1. So sorry to hear this is happening for you. You may want to discuss this in-depth with your physician. Here are some similar stories that you may relate to as well.

    1. In my case the skin did not hurt until I ran my hand over my head - it felt like someone was trying to pull my hair out . Odd feeling and appeared to stop after my 3rd infusion
