    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I did 2 rounds of chemo. one 10 week round before surgary and one round after. I didnot loose my hair the first time but the 2nd time I did. The 2nd round was for a just in case anything out there hanging around after my surgary. I recommend you do this. I have been in remission for 2 years now at stage 4 cervical cancer and cancer of the overy.
