Hair loss during chemo as a child was devestating. I lost it twice; first due to chemo, second time due to stress.
Having survived a "Poorly differiented sarcoma" 1 1/2 years of chemo, radiation and hyperbaric oxygen (and plenty of surgeries) led me to believe that perhaps I was finished with cancer. Not so! As you all know, there are many long term effects: depression, physical limitations, fertility issues as well as general well being. I NEVER expected to have hair loss as a long term effect. Is anyone else experiencing this? I am a 38 year old female; 25 years post chemo and other treatments. I'd love to hear from any and all who might be experiencing any hair loss for which your doctor is unable to determine the cause. All the doctors I've seen have been unable to diagnose or definitively determine the cause of my hair loss; wondering if any other long term survivors might be experiencing. Looking forward to hearing from you!
