Hi there I had Large Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and when I lost my hair I was anxious as well but, it takes time if you can tell me s a little about what your diet was like while on treatments and what your doing and eating now, I got my hair back soon after but, everyone is different and no telling when and or if hair will return but, keep the faith it will return in its own time. My hair did not return right away after but it did return just be patient, I promise it will return as soon as the chemo meds start decreasing and leaving your body. it will come back fuller or thinner straight or curly depending on how your body reacts.
