Shannen Doherty isn’t keeping any secrets about her cancer treatment.

The breast cancer fighter shared a moving photo yesterday, September 14, where she attempted to heal from inside a hyperbaric chamber.

Although the 45-year-old is grateful for the treatment, even she admitted it’s an “outside of the box” idea.

“My reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Jay Orringer, wanted to have the best outcome possible,” Shannen writes.

“That meant a hyperbaric chamber along with many other outside of the box methods.”

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment gives people pure oxygen from inside of a pressurized tube. It helps increase the amount of oxygen the body takes in, leading to the release of healing stem cells.

“The result... He saved my skin. Literally,” the longtime actress said of her doctor’s decision to go through with the treatment.

Shannen’s emotional photo arrived just a day after fellow Charmed beauty Rose McGowan — who shaved her head last year — wrote her almost-co-star a touching Instagram tribute.

Rose joined Charmed as surprise Halliwell sister Paige after Shannen left the witchy WB series amid allegations she was “difficult” and feuding with Alyssa Milano.

“I had to prove I wasn't as bad as you or I'd get the axe, too,” Rose wrote.

“But we were never the bad ones, it was them. The Beige Brained White Dudes in Charge. Well f—k them.”

Paige Halliwell’s portrayer capped off the message with, “I send you strength.”

Shannen clearly appreciated the message as she’s since liked the photo.

We’ll be keeping Shannen in our prayers.
