      It does give you some control to shave or burr it (my choice). I've lost my hair 3 times in 13 years so I've made a scarf to match each outfit. Another choice.

    Hair has almost completely fallen out in the last two days. So I chopped it off last night. Freedom!

      Good for you. That is exactly what I did. It does give you freedom and a sense of control. Take care.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Medicine for low white blood cell count): The bone pain was excruciating but got it under control through meds.

      Did they tell you about taking Claritin and Tylenol? I was told to take it before getting Neulasta and the day after. I didn't know about this until I was getting it the second time. After the first, I had what felt like the worst shin splints of my life. The pain woke me up. When I took the Claritin and Tylenol, it did wonders. It has to be name brand Claritin and it is the one without the D.
