Hi, I am a 55 year old female and have been in remission from Breast Cancer (invasive ductual and triple negative) since 2010. Recently I have been feeling very fatigued and often nausea in the mornings especially before i eat something and now have a red pimply rash on my neck - in front both sides. I am reluctant to go to my GP but must admit every time i feel a little "Off" its always in the back of my mind that the big c may return.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic,
If you under medication , probably symptoms described by you are suggestive for adverse effects of those drugs you taking, or this can by simply dyspeptic syndrome , you may try if nausea , gastric discomfort will persist antacids such Maalox, Rennie, Mylanta, Rolaids, Riopan, Alka-Seltzer, etc. and /or H2 blockers such as cimetidine (Tagamet HB ), Ranitidine ( Zantac 75 ), Famotidine( Pepcid AC), Nizatidine (Axid AR). Additionally , fresh fruits and vegetables juices, microelements and vitamins supplements, adequate diet and fluid intake. All these measures will boost your power. Regarding rash , you need physical assessment to determine cause and accordingly will be more easy choose treatment, and don’t be afraid see again your Doctor, definitely under correct treatment the “big c “ will not be back. Maintaining and preventive measures are very important to stay healthy.
