Hair Loss & Regrowth After Chemo

Glad to hear that your hair is coming back. I'm starting week 4, cycle 2, on Monday, and I'm waiting for the day when my hair starts to drop. My wife pulls on my head every night (ouch)...but nothing yet. Do you still have to shave? I have a moustache that I grew in 1969. Seems like a long time ago. I guess I'll lose that too. Haven't seen my upper lip in a long time!

Now that I know what to expect, I'm not looking forward to next week, but it's got to be done. It's good to hear that someone made it through.

It was about week 6 that my hair started falling out as a matter of fact I could just grab some and have a clump of hair in my hand just got to be unsanitary. So I finally got the clippers out and did the inevitable and that was just shave my head. Lol my wife liked it said it at least you have a nice round head. Anyways it is growing back now and it's not growing back with grey that's a plus :) in it and my hair is real smooth to touch. I had lost some hair on the top of my head dang that did not grow back but all and all it does not look bad. I lost my hair just about everywhere and now I can not even keep up with my shaving and my moustache is growing faster also. So any guys that are going thru this now all in time it will come back. I would say it takes about 90 days or so after you stop chemo before you start seeing things happening. Hair today hair to stay lol Joe ;)
