I've never really had strong fingernails. They'd break easy and I was never really able to grow long pretty nails. And then for some reason after my hysterectomy I grew the strongest prettiest nails you've ever seen. They had a good shape, they had white tips, they were beautiful for a few weeks and then Chemo entered my world.
Chemo can cause your nails to become brittle and to break easily so I was right back all of a sudden to normal but then I noticed those little moons you have at the beginning of your nails started turning dark. I had read where that might happen but it does go away after chemo, but here's the interesting thing I found out from the Dr. on Tuesday. It is mostly on my thumb nails but he says that for every treatment I get, I'll get another ring of darkness, like a tree has rings. You can count how many chemos I've had by the rings of darkness on my nails.
Very interesting to me. Very weird too. So there's your Chemo Trivia for the day.
