Thank you for all your posts ladies. First chemo today, will be using a cold cap, it's so good to read about your experiences.
My daughter has stomach cancer and will be receiving epirubicin which will cause her to lose her hair. She is just getting started on the chemo meds this next week. Where do we obtain the cold caps? I've not heard anything about them.
Hi Amanda, I'm so glad you found my experience helpful, it makes it so worthwhile using this forum! If you need any other tips/support do please let me know. Wishing you all the best in your treatment, and let me know how it goes. If you do need chemo remember it's zapping all those nasty cancer cells!! 🙂Take care xxx
Hi Gill... Thank you so much for sharing your experience and tips which has given me hope if I have to have chemo. I am still waiting to hear as I was only diagnosed last Thursday and have been told that I will have a lumpectomy and radiation initially but then dependant on other tests such as my HER2 results they will br able to establish other treatment for me.... dreading chemo as I don't want to lose my long hair (down to my mid back). I hope yours continues to work and that you make a full recovery Gill, take great care of yourself- Amanda xxxx
