Roseanne, I had to laugh about you saying you get to keep your hair for another week...it doesn't immediately fall out..I'm still laughing and had misspelled a few words. Keep the good humor up! I always need a good laugh
Mine started to fall out about 2 wks after chemo so I called my sister and told her she could do the honors of cutting it for me. I had her to cut it down to about 1 inch off my head. I thought she was going to bawl but she did good...she told me later she almost lost it.
But it's only hair and it grows back even after the second time round. I told the oncologist I was afraid it wouldn't grow back after doing this twice and she said...which made my heart almost stop...that it will grow back even after 5 times of Chemo. Made me feel ashamed at myself for thinking 2 times is bad and she's seen people doing it more than my 2 times.
Anyway, this skin thing has been a pain I'm sure. But it is good that the doctor wants to wait until your healed.
Prayers and hugs,Ruby
