Hi Sami

Yes, I lost my hair with paclitaxil. Well it actually went with the epirubicin I had before it but it didn't start to grow back until after I finished the paclitaxil.

I only cold capped for the 1st round of chemo as couldn't suffer the migraines.

Thanks for your reply Mrs Pardaeva, sorry I didn't respond sooner.

I've just had my second round of Paclitaxel. I haven't shaved my head yet, probably will before or after my 3rd round.

I too only used the cold cap once, as it was too much pressure on my head and I felt really cold. Thought it was best to remove it.

All the best Sami ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Started to lose my hair after my 4th treatment, I decided to shave my head again, though oddly enough it felt better after shaving!
