I too, lost my hair to chemo. This was the hardest part of my lung cancer experience so far. I have had chemo and radiation and they were nothing compared to the trauma of loosing my hair (I guess because it was so visible, I was less able to endure the loss). Also, I was lucky as far as the chemo and radiation went because I was able to go to work throughout the whole time. I did get a wig and I am still using it since the hair that is growing back is still very, very short. I started chemo in Sept. of this past year and my hair started to grow back even BEFORE the chemo stopped! I started to grow (peach fuzz) in January and it is now getting thicker and darker. Good luck to you. Keep praying and the treatments will soon be over and your hair will start growing back.
