I've been undergoing cancer treatment since March. I've undergone 16 weeks of chemo (Carboplatin and Taxol) followed by a bilateral mastectomy. The chemo had completely erradicated the cancer because the pathology report on all of the removed tissue was negative. Since I was HER2 positive I am also on Herceptin for 12 months. It's been about 6 weeks since my last chemo treatment and my hair is growing back in nicely. I have two more chemo treatments scheduled and I know that it will knock my hair out again. Will it grow back a second time? I am really reluctant to take the last two treatments since the pathology report was negative. Will there be a benefit?
