• When did your hair grow back after R-CHOP?

    When did your hair grow back after R-CHOP?

    I just finished my 4th of 6th chemo, and it appears my hair has started to grow back a little on my head, after not growing and being completely bald since shaving my head following the fall-out after treatment #1. Has this happened to anyone else? How long after your final treatment did it take to grow back enough to not wear wigs?

      I'm 2 months out and hopefully in another 6 weeks but I'll still wear a hat

      My hair came back curly and thick. My nails also are really long and thick as well. It took me close to 6 months to recover from chemo. I think my hair looks like a perm now. A rather expensive one, but it has a little more style over my long straight hair from my past.

      I had my last treatment around September 20. I stopped wearing caps around December 1. The hair was short and curly. Nine years later I have a nice soft curl.

      I just completed my 4th treatment this week and I have begun to notice some fuzz growing back as well.

      my hair mostlygrew back within six months of stopping chemo, but there are several sparse patches which will probably always be with me. my family tends toward alopecia in our old age, so i don't think it's a result of the chemo. but i am becoming an expert at the comb-over. i guess i'll either have to keep it really really really short or grow it long enough to cover the bald spots.:P

      My last treatment was November 12 and I now have a full head of curls that I don't have a clue about fixing, mine was poker straight before. I have learned hair is very overrated in the scope of things. Funny how my perspective has changed. I will have to admit I missed my eyebrows and eye lashes. Good luck.
