One of the most unpleasant side effects of chemotherapy is the onset of menopause for women. With menopause come the hot flashes and night sweats. Some women get them more severely than others, but no matter the degree, they are still uncomfortable and annoying.
I recall when mine hit. Wow, I thought the temperature had soared to tropical proportions in the middle of winter. Then the cold clammy came afterwards. I’d already had three chemo treatments so in my naivete thought I had bypassed this side effect. Obviously not.
Back in the 1990’s, information wasn’t as available and I didn’t know about moisture wicking pajamas. If I had known, it would have made a huge difference in my ability to get a good night’s sleep..
We’ve come a long way since then. Now there is many beautiful styles in wicking sleepwear from which to choose. Sweet dreams.
