    Side Effects (Hair loss (alopecia)): My hair was long!!! Down to my waist. I cut it to my chin withi an A-LINE then it fell out a week later which was about 14-16 days after my first infusion. I tried the cold cap therapy but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I'm almost totally bald and just got some wigs and they are itchy!!

      Hi there FreskaSF,

      Can you tell me more about the cold cap? I am wondering if I should try it and haven't really heard too many success stories.

    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): Wow!! Fatigue the first 2 infusions were off the charts but I was still able to workout towards the end of every 21 day cycle. Just enought to do something before getting infused again.

    Side Effects (Cough): I would develop a cough after every infusion that would disappear around 14 days after.

    Side Effects (Chemo brain): chemo brain is quite frustrating but I tried to just laugh about it. It was hard to remember things. I would forget what I was talking about mid-sentence lol.
