Hair loss (alopecia) - kmarquis

Side Effects Associated with Hodgkin Disease. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

I lost hair both from the chemo and the radiation. My aunt went with me to pick out a wig for when I needed it - it is amazing how much of my emotions were expressed at that time. I was so tied to staying normal through out my treatment and not missing any of the life I had planned on - I just didn't see how I could do that without people feeling bad for me if I was bald. I think I expessed most of my grieving over the diagnosis by grieving the loss of my hair, as it was symbolic to me of my health and also of my personality. But really it's just hair in the end, and it did grow back! :)
