Hair stopped falling out !


Funny question I suppose. My hair ....or at least about 80 % of it came out in handfuls between the 3rd and 4th cycles of weekly Taxol. Now it seems to have completely stopped ...and in my imagination has started growing again. I still have eyebrows and eyelashes.

Has anyone else had this happen ? I'm just slightly worried that the Taxol has stopped working properly.

Do we ever get to stop worrying ?

In relation to we don't, but it does get easier over time, I can't advise on your hair situation as I didn't have chemo but maybe a phone call to your chemo unit for advice/re-assurance, good luck with the rest of your treatment xxx

I don't think it means the Taxol isn't working. My hair fell out with AC but has started growing again during Taxol treatment, and I had been advised that this might happen. Try not to worry about it too much, though I know that's hard.

Thank you for your posts. Had Chemo yesterday and they confirmed that it is nothing to do with Taxol not working.It's 'just one of those things' that just happens. So one less (minor) worry !

Keep smiling. Hugs.
