It started falling out last night half of its gone already. It hurts just much as the first time it ever fell out.
I'm so sorry you have to experience this again. You have such a pretty color of hair.
It's terrible to lose your hair! I went through it last year, will being treatment again tomorrow, so I guess in about two weeks. It's very upsetting. Sending you a virtual hug!!
but I know you look just as pretty. I hope your treatment goes well.
I lost mine twice so I understandhow you are feeling as you will know exactly how long it will take for it to grow back again. If I'm honest I was more upset the second time. Sending hugs, Tina
I'm so sorry you have to go through losing your hair again. Sending lots of prayers your way that all goes well with your treatment!
Aww Felicia I am so sorry you are losing your hair again. I know how devastating it is. Good luck with your treatment
I know that feeling, two times over. So sorry, Felicia. Sending you lots of hugs today.
I still cry about my hair loss...I've been in treatment since the beginning of April. It does hurt. Cutting it short helps. I also started putting a scarf on tight and that helped. I also put Frankincense essential oil on my head when it burned. I think it helped too. Hang in there. Kim
The first time it happen to me I cried so hard. I went the next day and had the rest of it buzzed off it helpped with the pain and the saddness of whating if fall out. You are in my prayers
Love, Hugs, and Prayers.
Got my new wig yesterday. I forgot how itchy they are at first and how tender my head gets...This just really sucks. This is the 3rd time i watched my hair slowly grow and then fall out again. This time it had grown all the way to my shoulders. Not to mention I worked 2 jobs so I could afford hair extensions. I hate chemo.
It sure sucks that you've had to lose your hair three times and put in the extra work and time to pay for your hair extensions. You've had to endure so much at such a young age. Sometime soon in the future though after this chemo ends, I'm looking forward to you telling us that your hair is growing back and that you can wear your hair extensions again.
Sending you lots of prayers and hugs,
the support from the women on this board has helped me so much. I just wish I had found this bored 3 years ago. I actually found another board where about 10 women had the rare type of cancer I have. I have been searching for years and never met anybody who had even heard of it. All the post were about 2 years old and all the women kept talking about how they couldnt get rid of it and how it was spreading like crazy. One girl said it came back within 2 months of a brutal treatment. I tried to contact everyone of them to see if they found a cure but every single one of their accounts were inactive. That was disconcerning but Im hoping that maybe they just all found cures and quit posting. There was another post from a girl who is newly diagnosed and is recieving carbo/taxol which is what my first line treatment was and i had a recurence within 6 months and she was asking me all these questions and it hurt so bad having to tell her everything. I just hope she has better luck than me and the rest of the women. And I hope my story didnt make her lose hope but I just couldnt lie to her.
Felicia I have only been here a few weeks. What type of cancer do you have? I assumed it was ovaraian cancer. Is it a rare form or something?
I have lost mine three times now...and the Dr. Said I have to have another six months of chemo. I found on Facebook a site called Chemo Beanies. They are very stylish and have ruffles and come in colors or patterns. I bought one at a drugstore....felt more femanine. I have two wigs but try not to wear too much. Check out this site or google it ...Val
yes i have ovarian cancer but its an exreamely rare type called sertoli-leydig stromal cord(sexcord) ovarian cancer. Its apparently the most rare known form of ovarian cancer. Most ovarian cancer is in the epithial tissue or the germ cell but mine is in the connective tissue where the hormones are produced. It makes up less than 1% of ovarian cancer cases and what little bit of info the doctors know about it they do know that it tends to be resistant to treatment and thats why it keeps coming back.
