    Hair loss (alopecia)

    Side Effects

    Day 14 after first round R CHOP and my hair started falling out in lumps leaving bald spots so I had to shave it off. Wasn't quite prepared and had to race out to buy scarves/hats!! Is it normal for hair to fall out so soon? End of fingers got the tingling sensation quite soon after first round too..... ????????
