Ok so next question - Having been warned by the Onc of the real potential for hair loss on carboplatin/taxol, I wanted to know your experiences. He has said I can try a cool cap during chemo which may help. Fine I'll give it a try! Might as well look ridiculous whilst I'm plugged in!
I know everyone's reaction is different but what about wigs? Are they itchy? If so are there particular types that are more comfy? Are real hair more comfy than synthetic or not much in it? What about the nhs ones?
Also given we are hopefully heading towards summer are long wigs hotter and to be avoided?
I'm in Kent and it seems there is a shop at Lakeside. I was wondering about taking a pre chemo research tip as I may not want to venture out whilst during treatment. Can anyone recommend good places to go or look at?
Having always had long hair in not sure I'm ready for the whole turban thing...
Any advice/info welcome, thanks
