Side Effects Associated with Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Anal Cancer. Posted on September 30, 2013 View this journey (21 Experiences)

Week 3 DONE! My long blonde hair has started to come out in handfuls. I opted not to cut it short as I wanted to have it as long as I could and they said it might not fall out, just thin. I have ordered two wigs and a couple of hats. Think I will be styling in the new do and Stetson! It is only hair after all....

    Mine thinned in the worst way but I just cut it into a pixie -- now at 4 yr after treatment this month and my hair is almost back down to my waist! It grew just fine after --
    I list eye lashes & they were itchy.
    Never did affect the hair on my legs -- go figure :/
