Hi there jackearls excellent news on the anti sickness pills, glad to hear it and that treatment 2is done, that was my worst too.

Yes it took my hair about 5weeks to shed in total and it was sometimes really itchy on top. I avoided the shower completely for over a week 😳. I wore a soft cotton beanie to bed to collect up all the bits. Even then I was left with an oblong of black stubble on top that didn’t fall out or grow: weird. Afterward I red that even with no hair your scalp still sweats and so it needs washing.....but I never did.

I felt very isolated throughout as we only moved here 6 months before the diagnosis so I had no support network but I did have my husband and my sister and brother at the other end of the phone. And MacMillan in fact, I got good telephone support from them.

Chessington, what an excellent idea, we’ll done 👍🏻. We visited Monkey World one day. I wish I’d had more days out! Do whatever you can to make the most of good days.

Wishing you very well 🙏😌

Hi Debster ...my hair is still there ...but it is very thin ....I had a god awful night last night ...was very warm ...and waves of weird feelings ..I fell asleep ok but woke up and took me ages to settle and get back to sleep ..I'm a bit all over the place with my tablets to be honest ...I don't understand when to take them ..I was on anti biotics for a bacterial infection so not sure if that's the problem ..I'm done with them now ...I have headaches too amd was a bit constipated but things seem to be moving now . I got out yesterday for a long walk in the sunshine ..but I think I over done the housework after maybe ..still today I'm at slimming world today for a bit ...and then going to relax for the afternoon ...we leave in the morning for the weekend so no housework ..cleaning ect //thanks for your reply I do feel a bit on my own in this ..feel like giving up to be honest xxx

I found the first few days after chemo I couldn't sleep and I think it was because of the steroids they give you. Once I finished the 3 day course I slept better, so hopefully you will be the same
