    Side Effects (Hair loss (alopecia)): I started losing my hair about 10 days after the first chemo. Had my second chemo December 20. My family shaved my head on Christmas Eve! What a way to celebrate the holidays. That visible sign of cancer was very hard at first, but I had great support which made it become ok.

      Good for you....I did mine the same time (just cut it short to the head, my head was soo sore, afraid to shave)...and yes it was really hard at 1st, but it prepared me for the real baldness. Hope u had a great holiday.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Because the tumor was larger than expected, the clear margins were large enough. Had a re-lumpectomy 2 weeks later to increase the clear margins. Again, all went well.
