I start my chemo next week. It will be 4 treatments, texitere/cytoxin ...3 weeks apart and then 6 weeks of radiation. It was such a shock when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer but I now am very optimistic about my future and just ready to get the chemo started. It seems my greatest fear is the hair loss. Just wondering how soon after the first treatment that you start losing the hair. I know that it is different with everyone. I would appreciate so much any input that anyone can share with me what to expect with the side effects. I go to a chemo-training class tomorrow and I know they will answer a lot of my questions. I'm learning more than ever before to take it "One Day at a Time" .. trusting the Lord every step of the way!
