      I lost my all my hair within 3 weeks of my first carbo/taxol treatment. and it started growing back almost immediately and by the time I finished all 8 of my treatments i had lots of peach fuzz.

      Everyone is different. I met a woman 4 months after I was finished with chemo. She had the same dx and treatment at the same time as I did. I had lost about 2/3 of my hair, what was left turned pure white. At 4 months post chemo, my hair had started growing back and was about 2.5 inches long. She went completely bald and at 4 months post chemo, she was just starting to get peach fuz, but her color was coming back. (Mine still hasn't )

      My hair thinned so much by the end of the 2nd round of Taxol and Carboplatin that I too shaved it off. Too close-got razor burns. Now have completed 6th treatment a week ago. Realized yesterday that all other hair - eyebrows, eyelashes, and the fine fuzz that covered my face is gone too. The breeze on my face feels extra weird. Same thing happened in my first occurrence. Cool bald for the summer. :)

      So how did your scan go? Did you get results yet?
