Have asked to cold cap but I am starting to worry if I can cope doing it weekly and the time it takes as I have to travel for my treatment anyone else done this weekly ? Also I have no time limit on treatment 12 cycles then a scan if working I will be having more so could just be on going..... I do tend to get migraine as well has anyone suffered with headaches from cold cap ? Ohhh the dilemma my hair is very thick do I make treatment easier and just let my hair go or try to hold on to it......... HELP !

Hi I have just been diagnosed with regional reocurance in my coller bone and under left arm, I have been put on capecitabine 14 days and Vinorelbine day one and day eight oral as my onc said my vains not good enough to tolerate the iv, done 2 doses of the Vin and it has completely knocked me out each time for 4 - 5 days, has anyone gone from oral to iv and is there a significant difference been told better iv for side effects, I go to see onc next week and want to discuss having an iv port if this is the case I want to work as much as I can through treatment but at the moment there is no way, don't realy have any side effects from the Cap, so if I could sort the Vin life would be much easier ! xx
