I am in the middle of TC chemotherapy. Thankfully, I only need four infusions. I just had my second one on Friday.
I shaved my head on day 17 (to stubble, not completely bald). For some reason, my oncologist told me before therapy started that I probably would keep my eyebrows and eyelashes. Not so true. While the eyebrows are holding steady, the eyelashes are starting to drop. For some reason, this is getting me very emotional.
Add to that the lack of sleep from steroids (and irritability caused by them), and I am starting to feel a bit at sea. Is anyone else out there in the middle of this therapy course experiencing the same thing? Just want to feel like I'm not so alone.
