I'm on my last treatment of chemo.
I already had chemo/radiation in may and then went in for a permanent colotomy, but thank the lord, he saw all the margins and i have a reversable illiostomy. I have now started chemo for 8 treatments. 2 times a month, every other week i go in and get the drip for 2 hours of the Oxaliplatin and Eloxatin and then leave with the 5fu bag for two days.
I had thinning hair with the 5fu before when i had my first round of chemo and radiation.
Now i'm wondering with the eloxtin and oxaliplatin if your hair thins with those two drugs. I know it will thin some more with the 5fu.
Anyone on these drugs and what have they done to your hair.
Thank you in advance.
