    I have had my first chemo treatment two weeks ago. My scalp is really painful in spots when my hair moves a certain way.

      Thank you so much for your feedback. You all have rallied around me, and it means so much. I have talked to friends who have gone through chemo, but I was never told that losing your hair could really hurt, and be so uncomfortable. I am prepared with a wig and lots of hats. I will probably take on the hair in a day or two. At least I know that what I am experiencing is normal.
      Bless you all!!

      Mine fell out after third round I think it was. Mine didn't hurt, it just started coming out in clumps one night.

      I am taking oral chemo - not the harsher chemo that you have. It has its' side effects too but not as bad as you have. The first week I was on the chemo my hair started thinning. My scalp also itches and won't stop despite meds from a Dermatologist. My hair has always been fine so this thinning was really noticeable. In all this time it hasn't regained its' thickness. I started out as a brunette, medium brown, and one morning within the first month I woke up with white hair. I was shocked, literally. Everyone loves it but me.

    Hi Mem. Welcome to What Next. There are lots of great people here. If you have any questions, please use the question tab above -- that way everyone will have access & you'll get a quicker response. I was diagnosed w/stage IV endometrial cancer in Aug 2012 -- today I am NED (no evidence of disease). Hopefully, you'll here those 3 little letters soon. Wishing you all the best!
