    My hospital had a resource center that had free wigs. Don't know if you have checked with yours? I only wore my wig 2 times. I wore scarves and hats/caps most of the time. I found the wig was just too hot for me. I took the same chemo you are on and think (not sure) I started losing my hair shortly after my 2nd chemo.

      Thank you for the tips. I'm not sure if I will be able to get used to wearing a wig, but I don't do well in hats. I have ordered a couple scarves just in case. I will find out if there is a free resource for wigs. Thx!

    I did my treatments at Dr, Rao's office and the radiation at McLeod. Hope things are going well with you. How is your chemo going? Christmas was wonderful but busy. In a sense, I am glad it is over, but now we are at the threshold of a wedding. Daughter getting married March 1. I do not do a support group, but am thinking about joining one. They do have one at McLeod that meets on the third Thursday of each month. The amount of women I have met with breast cancer is staggering. Hang in there! Thinking of you.

    I hated the Neulasta shots. I thought the shot itself was painful and I think it is because it is still a little cold when they give it to you. I have had my granddaughter a few days so have been busy. Would you like to chat after the holidays are over?

    Hi! Hope things are going as well as possible. I just saw your request to chat. And saw that you had Neulasta pain. I, too, had pain after that injection. Did not like them at all. Ended up having to get pain meds from the onco. Please feel free to message me anytime and I will try to check my page more often.
