Ckat - I'm late to the thread. My diagnosis was similar to yours. Low oncotype and 100% ER/PR positive. I did unilateral mastectomy, 4 rounds of chemo and 35 radiation. My hair fell out 2 weeks after the first chemo; started growing back two months after the last chemo. My wig was stunning - complete strangers complimented my hair in elevators. Stopped wearing the wig about 5 1/2 months after I started. Neuropathy from chemo was mild for me and came on very late and didn't last long. Overall, my chemo side effects were mild to which I attribute short duration and physical fitness going in. Radiation was tough - talk to your doctor about skin care. I slathered aquaphor 2x a day and believe that helped me avoid skin breakdown during the process. I'm 11 months past my last chemo and a have a full head of super curly hair (wavy pre chemo) that I just had cut for the first time. Good luck.
