      No, but it has nothing to do with having had cancer.

      Upon recommendation of the Cancer Nurse Navigator at out local hospital, I am continuing to use the Crystal stone which works great.

      Nope, don't need it - no hair on arm pits, don't sweat too much. A good scrubbing using a washcloth seems to work just fine.

      I use Tom's or the crystal stone. I think the stone is messy or I'm using it wrong (too much water?)

      With hot flashes from Aromatase Inhibitors, you bet I do! My oncologist said it was fine. I even use extra strength. I have to. Good luck to you!

      When I was first diagnosed and going through treatment, I couldn't wear deoderant because it was painful to do so. They gave me a natural crystal to use instead and it worked great. You can now get them at the drug store, I got one for my daughter who is 11, she was getting BO, but I felt she is too young for antiperspirant. The crystal works great!

      Yes, I use Secret Clinical Strength. I sweat a lot, and I need it! I was never told not to.

      I maybe have used it twice since surgery. I have only shave my pits once since surgery. It seems like
      things doen't work the same in that area anymore. (not a bad thing, totally)
