... me and Im not one to be depressed, I am on medicare and they will only cover Clopidpogrel. Does anyone out there have this ? Do you use any creams to lighten them? Do the creams actually work ? I will not go out unless I am wearing long sleeves hot weather has begun I just don't know what to do. I also add that I have lung cancer and have been taking treatment gong on 7 years, I had a heart attack due to my chemo which ended in open heart surgery 1 year as of March. I am a type 1 diabetic going on 43 years using a insulin pump going on 15 years. I just turned 66 and feel like I am living in a 85 year old body. I have been widowed going on 14 years. Prior to my open heart surgery I was actively dating now my cardiologist has told me to get on with my life but with my spotted hands and arms it is holding me back. If there is anyone out there that can help me I would be most appreciative.
