Hair loss (alopecia) - kps0918

Side Effects Associated with Hodgkin Disease. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (17 Experiences)

The toughest side effect for me...I was in my mid-twenties and planning my wedding and I did not want to think about having no hair. I would like to say I got use to having a bald head, but it just reminded me that I was a very sick young woman when I saw myself in the mirror. I was surprised that your scalp gets very tender before your hair starts falling out. I lasted about five weeks before I gave in and shaved it myself. It started to grow back about 3 weeks after finishing chemo. Grew back thicker and curlier! :)
