Okay, I realize that in the grand scheme of things, hair loss from radiation is not really that big of a deal - but now that radiation is over (ended mid-September 09) and I'm on the Temodar cycles, I am seeing NO real re-growth! It's frustrating.
With a limited life expectancy at this point, I really am trying to enjoy my remaining time and trying to work on my "bucket list", including some traveling. But I'm really struggling with the giant bald spot on the crown and back of my head! I've got wigs (they don't seem to stay in place well) and lots of hats, etc. But I hope I get some hair growth soon! Wigs and hats, scarves, etc. will be so hot this summer.
I know this sounds weird, but once I do have some re-growth, has anybody ever heard whether hair extensions can be applied? Can I expect that any new hair growth will stay?
Any ideas out there to help stimulate the re-growth?
Sorry I know this seems minor, but it's bugging me and I wondered if anyone out there had any ideas.
