Are you almost done with chemo now???

I finished mine in Jan 2015 and just now starting to wear my own hair without covering with a wig. It is about shoulder length and similar to what I had when I got my diagnosis. It is a little thicker than it was then because I had cancer for several years before my diagnosis and did not know why my hair was getting so thin and falling out in splotches.

Glad to hear you are hanging in there. It does get better after your active treatment is completed. I did Neulasta also.

My hair completely fell out, every hair on every body surface. At 1.5 yrs later, they are back, still growing slowly but growing.

Do what you need to do to get through this stage and things will improve, slowly and surely.

I am half way through my six rounds . I get 3 agents every 3 weeks. I am tired, lost most of my long hair and am very low in protein.. I get Neulasta on the day after my chemo. Ftigue is the worst as I am usually very busy. I miss my treadmill. I am going on a day trip to celebrate making half way. Thanks for asking

I am 65 years old and I was recently diagnosed with stage 0 DCIS in the left which resulted in a radical mastectomy and 3 benign lumpectomy on the right. I am dealing with it mentally with support but there is still anxiety and emotional eating as I await my appt with my oncologist in April. Not sure yet if I face chemo or radiation.
