All this time I have been thinking that my thinning hair after chemo was either my hair growing back slowly or thinning from the Femara. Now I look online and find out that Zometa (a promising new drug I am taking in a clinical trial: it's supposed to make the bone hostile to cancer and prevent recurrence) also can cause hair loss in 12% of the people taking it! I don't want to get off either the Femara or the Zometa since I believe they're saving my life, but does anyone have any knowledge of these side effects or suggestions? I am supposed to see a dermatologist this coming Friday and will discuss the Zometa hair loss effects with my oncologist.
