I have two questions and I hope you can help me.
I have just finish my second sesson of taxotere, carboplatin and herceptin out of 4 and my scalp is still tender and sore esp after treatment. How long does this last? I still have hair but it is very thin now. My RN said I will lose it all because it is the side effect of two of my chemo. Will the tender and soreness go away after all of my hair comes out?
2. What is your favorite kind of wig? Real hair or synthetic. Living in South Texas it sure does get very hot here and with summer coming up I want to be as comfortable as I can.
I have another Pet scan on the 16th and see my onc doctor on the 20th. I ask about my treatment and he said we will decide on Monday when I see him. Hmmmmm, wonder if he is planning on changing my treatment. Boy, I hate this waiting part......
