I am on taxotere, carboplactin, herceptin, and projeta - probably not spelling correctly. I have only had one round July and am due for my next Aug. 19. then I'll have 4 more to go. I'm using the Artic cold caps, 2 hour before, during, and 4 hours after my treatment. I haven't lost much, some shedding but seems like the usual. I'm really worried about the 2nd treatment as it seems that most of the hair loss is after the 2nd treatment. I have been babying my hair. No heat on my scalp at all,washing once weekly with cold water, use all natural products and conditioners, satin pillow case, wide tooth comb maybe twice a day, I do wet in the shower too every other day with cool water to gain control and feel clean. My hair is curly and frizzy but I don't care and it sure is getting gray but, I love every precious strand. Don't want my students to know what I'm going through till all is done. Although I cringe when they cough and sneeze. I am losing body hair and some lashes and eye brows but use Latisse, hoping this saves my eyelashes. Wish me luck and I hope and pray we all get through this with zero cancer cells. Will keep you posted.
