Tonir -- I want to reach out through the screen right now and give you a great big hug!! The timing of your post is perfect, as I'm t-minus 1 week before I start my 4-rounds of TC chemo, and the ice chest w/the Arctic cold caps is sitting in my living room with all the other accessories. My dear friend/cold capping buddy and I will be met next Friday by a local area nurse that works with the Arctic cold cap company to train and educate us so that we (hopefully) get it right in the subsequent sessions. My oncologist wasn't necessarily pushing the process -- more, I believe, because she just didn't want to give me any false sense of hope -- but, on the other hand, she's certainly supportive of my efforts. I typically wear my hair on the shorter side, but thankfully have been blessed with relatively thick hair, so I'm hoping that the thinning won't be too noticeable.
Congratulations on completing your chemo!
