Is the pelvic hair ever growing back?

Mine didn't. Just a few stragglers.

Funny, I asked my radiologist that question just last week. He said that given the amount of radiation I've received and my age, it's doubtful that my hair will grow back, maybe just a few stragglers. He pointed out to me that I will save money on Brazillian waxes, and I had to point out to him that at my age, bikinis aren't on the menu. Takes some time getting used to, but definitely has advantages.

Mine came back, but not even close to what it was before and it feels different. But I am ok with that, it doesn't really concern me since I am not married and no one has to look at it...LOL!

Prior to colostomy i had chemo and radiation in pelvic area and did in fact lose all pubic as well as anal(between the cheeks)hair....Don't recall how soon after but eventually hair grew back ......At least for me.......

Mine was sparse to begin with for some reason after menopause and now I have a few new stragglers but that is about it.
