Well ladies, my hairdresser is coming to my house tomorrow to give me a buzz cut. Thirteen days from my first chemo infusion, like clockwork my hair is falling out. Exact number of days as 2010. My scalp started hurting over the weekend so I knew what was coming. There is no hair on my pillow but today I pulled on my hair and several strands came out. I called her right away. I can't deal with the shedding.
I am also still waiting for my appointments for an ultrasound and cardiologist visit. I am still unable to do much, even stand or sit for very long, because of the atrial fibrillation. I emailed my primary today asking if the appointments for the Picc line and next chemo are still on. I can't believe it has been a week and I hadn't heard anything from her. I had the cat scan on Thursday and also heard nothing. It's like deja vu from 2010 before I was finally diagnosed.
The hard part is that I am feeling good, only sick for two days from chemo and yet I cannot enjoy this time between chemos because I am like an invalid. I have been cooking dinner and tidying up a bit (OCD) but don't have energy for much else and they did say I could have a stroke. I am scared that feeling this way already and having chemo I will really have a difficult time.
