Hi All,

I know that there have been several threads on this, but I'm asking the question again: on average, when did your hair start growing back in after chemo?????

I'm 4 weeks out from my last AC and any positive encouragement (and "you're almost there" posts) would really make this week wonderful.

Thank you ladies.  I wish I could calm it down.  It's like a giant puff ball.  I'm hoping as it gets longer it gets weighed down a bit more.

Hey Ladies,

Did any of you have your hair start to grow back during Taxol?  I understand it's not as bad as the AC in terms of strength....just wondering when I can expect my hair to start regrowth.  My last Taxol will be August 15th.  

Thanks!

((((HUGS)))

Also wondering if your hair starts to grow back during radiation?  Just trying to figure out WHEN I will have hair.  Pretty sad since I've only been bald a week!

My hair began growing back about 4 weeks after I finished chemo on April 29 2009,by christmas I had a lovely flick out style in it and had blonde highlights...3 years on its very thick and grows at an astonaishing rate.I keep it in a bobbed style now but need to get it cut every 6 weeks to maintain it.I wore my wig until a week before christmas,as I didn,t like very short hair.I still think the hair loss was the worst part of my experience,however it does grow back .Best of luck and stay strong :)

Onvacation - my hair started to grow back two weeks after chemo and grew well during radiation.  I don't think it had any impact at all.
