So today we had our regular appointment with the Oncologist for my Mom who has SCLC - extensive. She's completed her chemo (did great!)and whole brain radiation and is currently having chest radiation. Today was day 8 of 25 chest radiation treatments. We were chatting w/the doctor, giving her updates on side effects etc and I asked, when will her hair start to grow back?...After her chest radiation? Her answer, surprised us.. she said that one of the side effects of WBR is that your hair on your head will not grow back.. my mother then burst into tears... Is this true? Has anyone had their hair grow back after WBR? The doctor then said that every patient is different... It might grow back ...
