I've decided against the cold cap, mostly becasue of the fear of an odd cell hiding in a small capillary in my scalp! Probably a completely irrational fear, but peace of mind is hard to get at the moment so I'll do whatever it takes. A session with Headstrong has been booked so I can hopefully learn how to do fancy things with scarves 🙂
I've been reading some of the other threads and have picked up some tips - drinking lots of water the day before, during and after, any other tips will be gratefully received.

I'm due to start treatment at the very end of July, so thought I might be better starting an August thread rather than joining one which is a few weeks underway.
I'll be having 3 x EC and 3 x Tax ( I think )
I'm in 2 minds about the scalp cooling - what are the experiences of others?
