I had a double mastectomy on Oct 21st with reconstructive surgery (expanders). I started chemo on Dec 2nd (cytoxen, methotrexate, 5FU) - my scalp has been itching for the past 8 days (even the inside of my ears and nose). Is this a precursor to my hair falling out?? I did shave my legs last Friday (11th) and have yet to get any stubble or hair growth since which is kind of nice. My next chemo is Monday the 21st. Just curious about the time table hair loss. Oncologist said I may not lose my hair, but his nurse said I probably would ???
