Hello ladies. Hopefully all of you who are mums are being spoilt today as I am. (Pressies and divine vegan choc brownie for breakfast! Healthy eating day off 😀)
Just a quick update and question. As I posted before, I was going to try the cold cap and have now had two 'zappings' with the carbo/taxol combo. I've tried the cap both times. Quite horrible. I pride myself on a high pain tolerance but nearly ripped it off this time. I literally gritted my teeth for 15 mins until the worst was over. The other poor lady my age was in tears due to the pain but thankfully her hubby was there with tissues.
My hair is falling out drastically in hand and brushfulls so I don't think it is worth continuing with. I've got about half left I reckon. I gave it a second go but am still shedding overwhere. My question is how long does it take for the whole lot to fall out? It started two weeks after first chemo and I'm wondering how long I've got until full Kojak. I know everyone is different but I'm curious.
On a plus note the consensus from family, friends and work colleagues is my wig looks amazing! Apparently after losing a stone and having the long wig I look like Jennifer Anniston's sister! As my friend said, it just looks like you are having an uber good hair day. Thank goodness wigs have improved. Ironic it looks better than my own hair normally though!!!! Maybe a face lift or Botox next?!
As suggested my another warrior I've ordered some fake fringes to attach to hats as the wig can be a weeny bit itchy after a while and I don't think I'll want to wear it all day at home on my own. Tip - I ordered from eBay for £2.99 rather than £15 in the wig shop. Look good and at that price I'm happier to trim and shape.
Anyway info from Kojak lovelies would be great.
