I hope I'm not repeating myself but I am starting to feel a little human after chemo and radiation except that my once very full head of hair is now very thin and my fingers and feet are still tingling 7 months after taxotere what gives? The one thing I was promised by my doctor was that my hair would come back, maybe curly but just as thick as before, NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My hair come back in a total different texture and color, after chemo. I used to have long blond straight hair, now I have very thick wavy blackish color hair, I hope as it gets longer that the waves will go. Maggie
