Hi, I have finished chemo and radiation. I was done with all my treatments about 2 months ago. I had lost all my hair, including eye lashes and brows. Well, they came back in just fine, but now they are starting to thin out again. Is that because they would normally fall out and be replaced kind of on a rotating basis anyway, and because they all fell out around the same time, the rotation is about the same time... does that make sence? has anyone experienced this. I would love to hear you response.... thanks for much. I sure enjoye the site.

Hi Shellrae, by coincidence, I thought this morning that my lashes were thinning out again. I finished my treatments just before Christmas. It sure is something to ask our oncologists about! Good luck. Sandy
