Hello, I have recently diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Carcinoma with HER2+, I will start EC+THP - surgery then radiotherapy. I am having a portacath put in on Friday and I haven't even started to look at hair loss solutions yet. Is anyone in London and the South East that has any good recommendations for wig salons please. Also, any recommendations on diet and lifestyle books to help with not allowing the cancer to come back and help with the immune system whilst going through treatment. There is so much stuff on the internet, plus I am bombarded by friends who keep sending me tons of links to read about stuff I'm not sure I want to believe in - is just too much for me.

Hello, I have recently been diagnosed with stage 2 invasive lobular breast cancer. I start chemo next week, followed by surgery then radiotherapy. I didn't realise most of my hair would fall out after the first chemo and I am now worried I haven't been to look at wigs etc. I have no idea about wigs, but heard about a hair replacement system which a friend of a friend had, costing £1900 with regular servicing at £85 every four weeks. Against the cost of a human hair wig, it seems comparable. Anyone had one of these, and any advice regarding what to look for in a wig, in terms of quality, fit, price and how long it takes to get one.
