    Stupid hair question...

    So this Friday is 3 weeks since my last treatment. I'm thinking that my body will know the poison isn't coming anymore and my hair will start to grow. Good logic? Right now I look like an ostrich with a fuzzy head... fuzz started coming in on taxotere. Lost it all on FEC. How many months did it take the ladies on here to have hair at least covering your head... even if it was military cut? ;)

      I am 3 1/2 months post Carboplatin and Taxotere, and my head is finally covered with very short fuzzy down. I'm still on Herceptin....that may be slowing things down a bit. It's finally filled in enough that I am considering going to work next week hatless for the first time. But it is still really short.

      My hair didn't start growing until two months after my final chemo. Now a month later, I have short hair covering my entire head.

      Had my own hair back within two years too bad the hair on my body came back even sooner and not sure it it is from cancer age or chemo but have plenty on my lips and chin now.
