Am a girl 15, dx with Hodgkin's in 2/2004. Finished chemo 4/20/04. Lost most hair on head by March, but surprised when eyebrows, lashes and rest of hair fell out after swimming in pool last week. I do still have the new 1/4 in. downy hair that just started coming in but am afraid swimming will cause damage to that too. Am wondering how long it takes lashes and brows to grow back, how fast hair on head will grow back, and please if anyone knows about affect of chlorine, let me know. I want to go swimming but not if it risks my hair. Thanks.
