Chemotherapy - Kimhoughton

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS). Posted on February 14, 2013 View this journey (12 Experiences)

4 rounds of red devil every 2 weeks. Would take off work on Thursday, get treatment, work on Friday and rest on the weekend. The nuelasta shot was worse than the chemo I think! I would then return to work on Monday. By the following week I would start feeling good then go back for another round! Then I had 16 weeks (rounds of Taxol). Easier but I did have bloody nostrils, some neuropathy and my eyebrows fell out.

Easy to Do: Neutral/NA
Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    I also had taxol and bloody nostrils, neuropathy, toe pain!, etc... As for NO eyebrows - My normal eyebrow pencil and/or powder eyebrow products did NOT work at all once the hair was gone - even with primer and sealer (as shown in many makeup video tutorals) however my BEST find!!>> MILANI makes a felt-tipped eyebrow pen in 2 shades that works on skin great - lasts until you wash off with soap or cleanser. It does NOT work on hair so well so I have stopped using now that my hair is growing back. It runs about $6 and found at most dept or drug stores. Hope that helps! I also found a $1 eyeliner felt pen at Meijer for a line that makes missing eyelashes less noticible Now that my hair is coming back - the facial hair (chin, cheeks,...) has grown quickest and most irritating - using a facial hair remover (melter) but can't keep up it comes back so fast! and the razor stubble feel on my arms, torso and legs is weird. I rather enjoyed the slick feel when there was no hair - and sure make showering fast!
