Judy--Technology is amazing! I'm grateful for the chance to Facetime with them everyday. It keeps me sane ;). I am glad your infusion went well today. You are so brave and calm with everything you are facing in the coming year! Great idea to start another thread about the Herceptin biosimilars and interesting to see the influx of new products after the patent expiration. I hope you continue to feel okay over the next few days!
Paula--I think I am leaning away from the cold-capping and just accepting the hair loss. After researching the topic thread and learning about the hair care regimen involved, I'm concerned about how I will handle the process. I hate having oily hair! The five days without showering after the surgery were hell for me...lol. I have very long wavy hair that tangles easily and I really need to wash it every couple days or I feel gross. Not being able to wash it regularly and using coconut oil on it to keep it from matting sounds terribly messy to me. Not sure I would cope well. So, last night I ordered some nice pre-tied scarves and beanies and I now am trying to figure out how to get my hair cut before it falls out. If I am going to lose it, I want to have some control over it ;). Maybe if I cut it shorter first, it will be less traumatic.
I hope your rash is getting better! I took Colace after my surgery and didn't have any trouble, but everyone is different. Hopefully you can sort out the cause and resolve it.
Best wishes everyone!
