Hi,

I had my 4 AC treatments, then I had one round of Taxotere (boy that was a bugger!)

Yesterday I was rubbing my head under my hat and noticed that I have hair growth!! Little peach fuzz!!

I was kind of excited, but also realize that it could just fall out...

Has this happened to anyone else? Will it keep growing or fall out.

    Hi Chrispea
    I am a 6 yr survivor. I had 4 AC treatments then 4 Taxotere. After the AC my hair started coming back (didn't come back out). Before my rads were finished I was going without my wig and hats. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Hugs Jadie<3
