Re: hair growth

My hair started to grow back after FEC 5. I had number 6 on 9th December and stopped wearing wigs in the new year. Its quite thick now and looks like a proper hair cut even if it is rather short. You should definitely be able to go hatless by summer! X

Re: hair growth

HI there, my hair was slower than Josie's but I am exactly 6 months post chemo (FEC-T) and have an almost proper head of hair, its shorter and much curlier than before - but people think it is a real haircut!

Re: hair growth

We're all so different. I kept nearly all of my thick mid back length hair on FEC with the help of the cold cap but lost the blinking lot on the second half of my chemo which was Tax - didnt even have a hair up my nose by the time it finished. However my hair came back with a vengence. My last chemo was the end of july and I ditched my wig 6wks later. By my birthday in october I had a thick head of white curls.

Re: hair growth

Mine has just started too, but just has tax 1 so it may not hang around for long?? Not sure about this though.

Still got leg hair, armpit hair, eyebrows and eyelashes - thinner, but there nonetheless. Why doesn't it start from your feet and work upwards?

Will be interested to see replies.

Well done for finishing FEC - I found it awful.

hair growth

My hair started to grow back after FEC 3 BUT just wondering how long does it take to grow back to a decent length that you could be hatless say for the summer?
It is my longing now for the return of my hair. I dont care what colour, how thick i just want my hair.
