Re: Questions about the dreaded hair loss??

Hi. No, when I was on chemo in 2005 (very similar drugs to you) I lost nearly all of my hair on my head and eventually all body hair and (the last too go) nearly all eyelashes and eyebrows. I could handle trying (sometimes) to come up with some eyebrows but left the lash situation alone. Of course by then my dry eyes had gotten so bad on chemo I was out of the type of contact lenses I had worn for years and was wearing glasses. I think that helped actually as I felt less self-conscious.
