I was diagnosed with Stage 3C ovarian cancer last February (while in the USA) when a tumor perforated my colon during a colonoscopy. Luckily I responded extremely well to Taxol/Carboplatin. My CA125 went from 1587 to 41 after 3 rounds, and I was able to have the debulking surgery at that time. (BEST of all the emergency ileostomy was reversed!) I had 3 more rounds of chemo to hopefully deal with any microscopic remnants of cancer. We just returned home, to Scotland. It has been 6 weeks since my last chemo, and I'm just beginning to get a bit of stubble on the top of my head. Still no sign of eyebrows or eyelashes. How long does it take for hair to return? Does it come in patches or all over? I'm especially keen on having eyebrows again!
