    Hair is back

    Celebration

    Lost a good bit of hair from treatment and surgery. Now that is is growing back, I look a bit like a crazy doll baby that a child went crazy with the scissors. Its actually funny. Some hair is really long and some is really short. LOL.

    I have no memory in the short term. Is this normal after Interferon? How long does it last?
