My sister has been post-meningitis for 4 months now. She's improved so much over the last few months (with the STM loss and fatigue), but we've discovered another alarming potential after effect.
Is it possible to lose your hair after having the infection? If so, will it grow back the way it was before?
Her hair was beautiful and thick, but now it seems the amount of hair has reduced by half over the last two weeks.
We're going to the doctors to see if there's an underlying problem, but as you can imagine she's very upset, and I'm upset for her!
