      You'll always find those co-workers who think the limelight should always be on them and NOT anyone else in the office. So sorry you went through this. Best remedy...ignore them. Sometimes ignorance cannot be fixed!

      I had lots of people say how good i looked for someone with stage 4 cancer, but no one ever doubted to my face if I was truly sick.

      My experience is that LOTS of us cancer survivors look perfectly healthy. I am glad you do!!!

      When i was pregnant with my son, i didn't show for a long time. My coworker showed right away. I was accused of lying about being pregnant. I still shake my head about that.

      Mine fell out and all I have is stubble now. Hasn't really tried to full blown grow back.

      This is a side-effect of my oral chemo also. I can't say I lost mine but it used to be thick. It has thinned a lot. At the crown at the back of my head, I can see a very small actual loss. However, one night shortly after I started the chemo my hair changed from a medium brown with a few strands of gray here and there to stark white. No gradual transition. Brown one day. White the next. Really white!! I took a look in the mirror and nearly went into AFIB! Strangers always stop and tell me that they love the color of my hair.

      I have lost so many things so many times that I can only guess that hair is in there somewhere...

      People with Hodgkins often have itching as a symptom too.

      My immunotherapy (Imfinzi) has me itching. I now take Claritin daily.

      Thanks for your information. I had no idea that the cancer itself could be making me itch. I'll ask my oncologist about measures to stop it.

    I was told that radiation will cause ringing in the ears.

      Hello, I am an oncology nurse and yes, there is such a thing as radiotherapy induced tinnitus. You can get ringing in the ears from radiation and also from the drug Cisplatin. The ringing is usually temporary and rarely permanent. I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

      I have had radiation and didn't have this, but as everyone says, not every cancer case is the same.

      I have tinnitus. I don't recall if it got worse after radiation. I definitely do live with it. It keeps me company. It also makes me a little harder of hearing :)

    There is a product advertised on TV that is supposed to help with memory and "brain functions". It's called Prevogen

      I have wondered about that myself. I am a little wary of those types of claims but as bad as my recall has gotten, I might take a shot at it.

      I guess nobody has used it. But have any of you even seen the advertisements on TV?
