Hello all, I take my next steps down this scary journey on Wednesday. First session of chemo, start with a full dose of carboplatin, reduced strength taxol, then go back the next 2 weeks for more taxol, take one week off, then start again... wish me luck.
Been trying to get my ducks in a row, I got a hat to wear outside, some bandanas, and a couple of paisly print cap type things that also tie in the back like a scarf. These were the only things I could find to fit my head. (Head measurement one inch larger than the listed large size in the ACS boutique at my cancer center.) I will get a script for a "cranial prosthesis" when I go on Wednesday and have an honest to goodness consultation with an owner of the local wig shop.
Has anyone had any experiences with using (and I don't know the name of the product) something on your eyelashes and eyebrows so they don't fall out? It is available in the ACS boutique, but I thought I'd ask about it before I spent $39 on it.
Had my chemo port put in last week, so I guess I'm good to go.
