Well I was all set to start my radiation next week on the 7th. I felt I was pretty prepared for all I had in store thanks to you guys! Well out of the blue they called me Monday to come in on Tuesday to talk with a different Oncologist. So I go and of course my mother tags along. The board of Oncologists decided it would be in my favor to also do Chemo :( 3 bouts of Cisplatin. They said I will definitely lose my hair, which I know is a small price to pay in return for a healthier life, but I can't say I'm not bummed, majorly. I stayed my optimistic self through the appointment, despite my mom being in tears. She just couldn't hold them back! Then the American Cancer Society lady came in with some wigs to try on, it kinda hit me a bit then, but I was still all smiles. Last night I went to bed at about 10:30 and woke up at 1:30 to feed my baby and like a ton of bricks it fell on me. I could not sleep at all last night. It's just so freakin unfair ya kno? I KNOW that I'm lucky to be receiving treatment and that in the end it will be great! I am gonna freak when my hair starts falling out though. Just wanted to share I guess. Anyone have any stories from when their hair started falling out?
