Hi everyone

I was diagnosed just over 5 weeks ago after finding a lump in pregnancy
Fast forward to today and I had my baby boy 4 weeks early and have had my first chemo.
My treatment plan is 6-8 rounds of chemo, lumpectomy then radio so pretty much treatment up until Christmas

I have been coping really well with treatment, AC for me. Noticed today though my hair starting to come out which for me is going to be the hardest part

Has anyone else started to loose their hair? If so how quickly?
I'm not using the cold cap, was advised its painful, time consuming and unlikely to work on my chemo
Starting to realise how rubbish this all is after being in a bubble with my baby the last few weeks
