    I also diagnosed in March with Lobular Carcimnoma. Have undergone a double mastectomy and I'm currently undergoing chemotherapy and then will start radiation. I am happy to share what I can with you

    I have to share this...I read somewhere that it was a nice gesture that when your hair fell out to put it outside for our "feathered friends". My 3 year old granddaughter found some of my hair and brought it to me to "Help Grandma put it back on." She was quite disappointed when I told her that it wouldn't work. It did bring give me a big smile and laugh, plus a sweet hug and kiss from my granddaughter. :D

      That's sweet. My 10 year old nephew was just tore up that people were staring at my bald head. So I let him take a sharpie and draw a smiley face on the back of my head. He got a kick out of that.

    I am not as far along as you but I'd love to know how you are doing? I had the surgery about 2 1/2 months ago and am currently in chemotherapy. I won't start Radiation until December.

    Side Effects: Well, I knew it was going to happen and it did.They told me that I would h=notice hair loss in 10-14 days and I woke up today and watched my hair fall out. My wonderful husband came home from work and shaved my head so it wouldn't be so bad. I now have Velcro head. :) Just more fun of this journey..

      yes, me too! lost ALL hair... as for my missing eyebrows - My normal eyebrow pencil and/or powder eyebrow products did NOT work at all once the hair was gone - even with primer and sealer (as shown in many makeup video tutorals) however my BEST find!!>> MILANI makes a felt-tipped eyebrow pen in 2 shades that works on skin great - lasts until you wash off with soap or cleanser. It does NOT work on hair so well so I have stopped using now that my hair is growing back. It runs about $6 and found at most dept or drug stores. Hope that helps! I also found a $1 eyeliner felt pen at Meijer for a line that makes missing eyelashes less noticible Now that my hair is coming back - the facial hair (chin, cheeks,...) has grown quickest and most irritating - using a facial hair remover (melter) but can't keep up it comes back so fast! and the razor stubble feel on my arms, torso and legs is weird. I rather enjoyed the slick feel when there was no hair - and sure made showering fast!
