Recently diagnosed and starting chemo on Wednesday
I would really welcome some practical advice about chemo. I’m due to have carboplatin and paclitaxel and my consulatant has said that although I’m welcome to try the ‘cool cap’ she has only known it ever to work in one person undergoing this sort of chemotherapy. So I’m advised not to bother and to just accept that I will lose my hair. I’m sad about this but accept that there’s no point in going through the pain of the cool cap if it’s definitely not going to work - or very unlikely to. I would really welcome advice from other who have had this treatment. Although I have many many other worries and am getting very little sleep and although this may seem a very minor thing in the scheme of things I need to make a decision and really need informed help! Thanks in advance to anyone who is able to reply.
