Thank you so much! I do have Amazon Prime. I will check out The Science of Fasting. I've been going back and forth in my mind about using the cold cap. It seems like it will add hours to my treatment. My last chemo treatments already lasted 5 hours. It sounds like I would have to get to arrive at the cancer center quite early to accommodate the cap. Thanks for your advice! Hugs. Eva
The cold cap worked very well on me. They advise you to cut long hair anyway - it still works with long hair but it is harder to manage because it can get matted if you are not careful.
You should take a couple of pain killers before and take a flask of hot coffee with you. You might also want to have a look at a documentary called The Science of Fasting available on Amazon Prime free if you have it and cheap if you don't BUT fast forward it til about 40 minutes in and you will see the amazing results for fasting, chemo and cancer. I also fasted and my side effects were not as bad as some others.
Oh and read up about Vitamin D3 and cancer.
We have to do everything we can to tilt the odds in our favour xxx
Hello - I'm new to the site and I actually have ovarian cancer. It's hard to find discussion groups for ovarian cancer though. I thought I would check with you lovely ladies about your experiences with cold caps. I just finished my first round of chemo at the end August 2017. Unfortunately my cancer appears to be coming back. I imagine I'll start chemo again soon. So my hair is very short but it's finally covering my head at least. The whole reoccurence of cancer breaks my heart, but the thought of losing what little hair I have (again) is quite daunting. I've been reading the threads about cold caps here, but I didn't see anything about wearing a cold cap when you've got only a little hair to begin with from previous chemo. Any thoughts or suggestions?
