hair regrowth

Hi completed epirubicin and due to start cmf on thursday can anyone please tell me when I can expect my hair to re grow thanks

Hi -

I had E-CMF last year. I saw my first bit of ‘thistle down’ about 4 weeks after starting CMF. It didn’t really get going big time until I finished but by 3 months after finishing chemo it was about 1 1/2 inchs long. It felt like kitten fur very soft. Every one thought it looked reall pretty. I finished chemo end of October - i am now at the stage of thinking about a hair cut - scary stuff, I do feel a bit protective of my hair.

Good luck with the rest of your chemo. I found the CMF bit dragged by rather slowly but it does come to an end so hang on in there.

Love Jacqui
