Good evening ladies....hope you are all doing well...

So it's has been just over a year since my last chemo and my hair is coming very,very slow and thin you can still see some of my scalp in certain places .....before cancer I has such thick hair and it use to grow so fast that now seeing it this way can be so depressing ... I have been on Femara so I'm assuming that could be the reason why is coming back the way it is... I was told that Bition is very good vitamin to take so I went today and got some.. Has anyone went through this? I'm hoping that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Take care ladies and God Bless

I am so sorry about your hair. I was on Femara two years before it progressed and I did use it's kissing cousin drug Arimidex for years. I never had a hair problem on either drug.

Suzanne - aka Double Whammy has hair problems. Why not send her an email to see what she recommends?
