I have had 2 X EC with cold cap and have lost a distressing amount of hair. I’m so down about it and I’m having horrible, crippling anxiety because I’m so scared of permanent hair loss after Docetaxel which I’m due to have 3 of after I’ve finished my next and last EC. I don’t know whether to cut my hair shorter, at the moment I have reasonable coverage but it very much feels like it’s on its way off. I’ve heard cold cap helped with regrowth after Docetaxel - does anyone have any success stories with this? I know someone who hasn’t had her hair grow back 2 years after finishing Docetaxel and I can’t bear the thought of it. Having looked online it seems it’s more common than the oncologists like to say.
Did anyone out there have Docetaxel in small doses weekly rather than 3 weekly and what were your experiences, hair-wise?
Any wisdom related to Docetaxel and alternatives would be greatly appreciated. I’m having a meltdown.
Thanks a million and sorry for the negativity. I know everyone on here is having a tough time.
