Summer's knocking (well, nudging) the door so it's time to get my milky white and hairy legs out! Now I have a quandary, do I wait a few days to find out if I'm going to start chemo, as this will surely save me the task, or just get on with it?!!
It's Saturday, the sun is shining so it would be nice to keep this thread, as it's intended, light hearted with a sense of humour x
My leg hair came back white Tweasel - I was delighted as thought that would mean no more shaving. However they soon turned dark again and coming thicker and faster than ever, I have to shave everyday!! I'm not sure if it's just an illusion as not had hair for 6 months?
I'm still astounded my lady garden has fallen out, regrown and fallen out again and I'm only half way through FEC -T!
Thank god I've still my moustache...
Yes I tried the cold cap twice but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I would still recommend it to anyone though as you never know, you could be one of the lucky ones that gets to keep most of thier mane.
They are the strangest contraptions, a bit like wearing a frozen thick swimming cap that is attached to a thick cable covered in the brightest shades of wetsuit material. On my first go I looked like a ladybird and on the 2nd Penelope Pitstop - much to the amusement of my friends and family!
If you decide to do it I hope it works for you!
Morning my fellow hairy legged ladies.
I am so pleased (haha sorry) to hear I am not the only one still with the darstardly leg hair!!
Having had 2x FEC so far and despite losing my head hair @ 3 1/2 weeks my leg hair stubbornly remains put and I was soo hoping to be able ditch the razor along with my shampoo, conditioner and Jolene....:-) BUT I now see this as a massive positive as I find that while chemo hasn't eroded all my folicles I still have eyebrows and long lashes #winnerwinnerchickendinner
I also have hairier arms than I had previously, I mean seriosly what is that about??, you can't make this stuff up
Now I've said the unsayable I'm sure these will also now fall out as soon as I hit post so I'm currently saying a silent prayer to the BC fairy to spare me a bit longer while I drink my coffee!!
Ok I'm off to shave my legs (and err possibly my arms) have a lovely Saturday ladies...xx
Hello lovely ladies. I did it - bit the bullet and not only did I shave my legs and underarm (just the one), I waxed my moustache and had my shoulder length hair cut very short in the same style as a wig I've chosen (yep, I'm having chemo). The cut took years off me, my son said I should have had it done years ago, I just hope I manage to keep it! Good luck to you all x
I'd shave them if you want to flash them in the sunshine. Have not shaved mine since December - there is short hair there - and I finished chemo 9 weeks ago. They just did not grow after first chemo. Will probably need to do them when the weather warms up here in the North East. xx
Thank you Kittkatt for making me laugh out loud! You're right, I live in the south, I'm sorry you can't share our sunshine. Hope the weather improves for you. Best wishes to you and keep up that sense of humour x
