Linda Nolan discusses a distressing cancer-related adverse effect

Linda Nolan, sister of Coleen Nolan, is 63 years old and has been candid about her diagnosis of secondary breast cancer. She has disclosed that while the condition can be managed, it is not curable.

She goes through chemotherapy once a week, which causes neuropathic pain in her feet and fingers, and she only recently revealed another devastating result of her treatment. The former singer is currently having treatment for cancer.

After stating to Woman & Home that her wedding rings are the most valuable items she owns, Linda went on to say, “Because of my treatment, my arms and hands are swollen so I can’t get them on, so they’re kept in a special place.”

Linda’s arms and hands are swollen because she is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Lymphedema, which is the condition causing Linda’s arm to swell, is a side effect of cancer treatment that involves the removal of lymph nodes or the damaging of lymph nodes in some other way.

The woman, who is 63 years old, stated that she prefers to cover up her arms by wearing long tops.

Linda has confessed that her incurable diagnosis is the thing that concerns her the most in life, despite the fact that she bravely faces with the side effects of chemotherapy.

“I’m terrified of passing away,” she confessed. “I make an effort not to stew about it. Although I declare that I am “living with cancer” rather than “dying from it,” there are occasions when the reality of my situation really hits me.”

In April 2022, when Linda made an appearance on Good Morning Britain, she spoke candidly about her treatment, saying, “My legs are a bit wobbly and I have neuropathic pain in my feet and my fingers which is like really bad pins and needles all the time.”

Linda went on to explain that the pain she experiences in her feet and fingers is comparable to the sensation of constantly having pins and needles in her feet.

The year 2006 marked the beginning of Linda’s fight against cancer, which she discovered to be breast cancer. The following year, in 2007, she was diagnosed with cellulitis and lymphedema in her arm, and the following year, in 2017, she was diagnosed with secondary cancer in her pelvis.

The news that Linda’s illness had spread to her liver came in March of 2020. As a result, she had to undergo chemotherapy treatment until September of that year.

Together with Linda’s sister Anne, who also has cancer, they decided to create a book about their experience battling the disease.
