Hair still falling out

Re: Hair still falling out

Hi Marianne,

I finished chemo on 25th Nov 2016. I seem to be the same situation as you. My hair is still falling out - worse than during chemo. I was told I am anemic, so I'm taking iron tablets. The hair loss seems to be slowing down a bit, but this might be because it's thinned so much!.

I have bought some Plantur 30 Caffeien shampoo from Boots and trying this at the moment.

Best wishes,

Jane

Hair still falling out

I had my last chemo treatment 6 weeks ago and my hair is still falling out. Does anyone know if this is normal? It's depressing still finding it on my pillow or falling into basin when I clean my teeth. It actually seems worse than it was on last chemo session.
